Dream On (TV series)
Dream On is an American adult-themed situation comedy about the family life, romantic life, career of Martin Tupper, a divorced New York City book editor played by Brian Benben. The show distinctively interjected clips from older black-and-white television series to punctuate Tupper's feelings or thoughts, it was created by Marta Kauffman and David Crane, the team who created the TV show Friends. It ran for six seasons on HBO between 1990 and 1996; the show centered on Martin Tupper's life in an apartment in New York City with his teenaged son, relating to his ex-wife, while trying to date other women and succeed as an editor for a small book publisher with Toby, his brassy secretary. Judith, his ex-wife, went on to marry Dr. Richard Stone - the never-seen, most impossibly successful man on the planet; the opening indicates Martin's mother was "friendly", always parked him in front of the TV, hence the association of sex with his memories. The show was notable for its frequent use of clips from old movies and TV shows to express Martin's inner life and feelings, which lent it much of its quirky appeal, reminding viewers about the impact of TV on their consciousness.
The show was significant for being one of the first American sitcoms to use uncensored profanity and nudity. Dream On first aired July 1990 on HBO, was cancelled by HBO in March 1996. One season of the show, with language and nudity edited for broadcast, aired in prime time on the Fox Network in 1995: Sunday at 9:30-10:00 p.m. from January to April and Monday at 9:00-10:00 p.m. from June to July.

Dorien Wilson, as Eddie Charles Denny Dillon as Toby Pedalbee, Martin's secretary/assistant Michael McKean, as Gibby Fiske, Martin's boss Renée Taylor, as Martin's mother, Doris Tupper Time magazine called the show "engaging", noting that its use of old clips was "a clever gimmick perks up familiar material" and called the second season of the "decidedly adult sitcom...better than ever."The New York Times had mixed opinions about the show.
In their first-season review, John J. O'Connor said Dream On was not "different from ordinary network fare...except for, as might be expected, the more freewheeling language and treatments of sex". About a year O'Connor said, while the show "has its weak spots, most notably in a pointless tendency to be smarmy" with "clips... that are sometimes less witty than painfully obvious. But Dream On takes unusual chances and has a habit of turning out to be refreshingly original." The show was created by Marta Kauffman and David Crane, who served as producers. Dream On was executive produced by John Landis. Landis directed several episodes of the series. To this day, the static shown on the TV towards the end of the opening credits forms part of the opening credits or introduction for every show made by HBO; the edited version of the series aired in syndication on Comedy Central in the United States.
