DESCRIPTION: (from NBC's press release) There are odd couples and then there are Paul and Sheldon. Paul, who owns his own apartment, puts the weight of the world on his wheelchair-bound shoulders and he's starving for attention, so much so that he'll report a make-believe crime so the police will visit. Then there's Sheldon, who's broke and homeless, but forever the friendly opportunist. When these two guys decide to live together, the comedy comes naturally. With an ensemble of disabled neighbors, including sexy calendar girl, Leah, cool and charismatic Sid, and his voice box-speaking sidekick, Graham, there's never a dull moment in this series based on the BBC hit.
