Marvin (Brad Garrett) and Decker (Peter Riegert) gamble. So does Zig (Wayne Knight), even though his wife constantly nags him about the money he loses. Meanwhile, blind Greg (Matt Craven) enjoys the game through pretty Melody (Sarain Boylan), who describes it to him. A seasoned ensemble case of TV and film veterans create winning chemistry in this slice-of-life comedy.
