"Jesse" was cancelled in 2000. Why are you creating a webpage after the show went
off the air?
The truth of the matter is that I didn't watch Jesse when it first aired. I was channel-surfing one day, caught the end of "Working", and then watched a show called "Jesse". I instantly liked it. A few episodes later, I started thinking about the show some more, and looked it up on the Internet. Finding pathetically few sites devoted to this great show, I began planning one of my own. And I also started taping Jesse everyday.
Right here at this site! The opening and closing themes are now available here, at the Media Files page.
Kurt is in the Season One episode 'Goober Up
The Nose' and now I'm confused. Explain.
The name of the bar is Der Biergarten.
During the hiatus between seasons, the format of the show was changed, and we skipped four months. The characters of John Sr., Junior, and Darren were discarded, as well as the bar. The premise of the show shifted more towards Jesse as a nurse, and two new characters were added, Danny Kozak and Kurt Bemis.
According to Jesse in the first episode, Junior gave up talking until he could find a way to use language more efficiently.
In the Season One episode 'Boo! He's Gone'. Junior broke his long run of silence to tell Jesse the truth about her ex-husband, Roy.
The theme is sung by The Tories, and it is called "Time For You"
The lyrics to the themesong are actually
only the first verse and the chorus of "Time To Be," by The Tories. You
can find both the full version and the TV version here.
Jesse lives at 346 Macord Avenue, Buffalo, New York. Diego lives at 348 Macord Avenue, Buffalo, New York.
Yes. David Faustino, who played Christina's TV brother, Bud, played a used-car salesman in the episode 'The Best Deal Possible'.
"Jesse" was cancelled because "...[it] bled viewership from [its] lead-ins (Friends and Frasier) and lacked potential to improve." The later, of course, is completely wrong. "Jesse" had incredible potential, and if given the chance, would have improved dramatically, if it even needed to be improved at all. Granted, during the second season, ratings slid, but when it was cancelled, "Jesse" was still one of the Top Twenty shows, according to Nielson Media Research. This just goes to show you what kind of people NBC has working for it. Canceling a hit show in order to keep another, older, hit show with the same number of viewers. Terrible, terrible.
You can't, officially. No "Jesse" episodes have ever been officially released on VHS or DVD. However, occasionally someone will try and sell a set they've taped off the TV, whether during the original run or from repeats. Sometimes these sets pop up on eBay. Tape collectors also may have some or all the episodes available for trade, with no rights given or implied. If you search around, odds are you can find some episodes.
