Question: I need some help because this is driving me nuts. I want to know the name of a show that was on Showtime a few years ago. It was about a group of friends, but the twist was part of it took place around 1993, another part in 2001 and a third part in 2008 (I'm guessing, but it was around those years). It was on the air a few years ago and I think it only lasted a season. Also, I remember they used "Once in a Lifetime" by Talking Heads in their promos. Can you name this show for me? — Matt

Televisionary: Showtime's Leap Years did more than promote with that tune, Matt; it was the series' theme song.

Leap Years debuted in July 2001, relating the lives of a group of New York friends in the years 1993, 2001 and 2008. Among them were actress Athena (Michelle Hurd), movie critic (and future therapist) Gregory (Garret Dillahunt), lawyer Joe (Bruno Campos), developer Josh (David Julian Hirsh) and teacher Beth (Nina Garbiras).

As you say, you and other viewers didn't have much of a chance to find out more about them since the show was gone by the end of January.
