She's the lady in red when everyone else is wearing tan...
We all have our guilty pleasures when it comes to TV. You know what I'm talking about--that secret show that wouldn't be your answer when someone asks you what your favorite TV show is, but it's the show that you could watch all night in a marathon. For me that show is The Nanny. As embarrassing as it might be, I'm not ashamed to admit, I love this show. I used to watch it a little bit when I was younger, but I think a lot of the humor just went over my head. Now that I can appreciate it for what it is, I honestly think it's hilarious. Fran Drescher (despite the voice) is such a talented comedienne and is really what makes the show. The rest of the characters are so well cast, and I love the chemistry and storyline between Fran and Mr. Sheffield, as well as the comic relief of the banter between Cici and Niles. But what really makes the show is how well-developed Fran's character is--from her hilarious family, her penchant for Loehman's, her constant Yiddish references, to her amazing, over-the-top outfits, I really just love this show. In the current era of reality TV, I'm truly a fan of the 90's sitcom, and thanks to Nick@Night and TVLand, I can get my Fran Fine fix practically everyday of the week! It's the little things in life :)
