A Pretty Decent Attempt
17 June 2005 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty decent attempt to spin off one of the more popular sitcom characters in television history into her own show. This to me could be seen as almost a redneck hybrid of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and a show that came out a few years later, "Cheers". You pretty much got a look into Flo's world as she dealt with not only the crazies at her roadhouse, but with her domineering mother and her much more reserved little sister. The only thing that might have hurt it was the fact that the show didn't feature characters who were closer in personality to the "Alice" cast to help balance out Flo's wilder personality, much like Alice and Vera did. However, this still was a decent effort and its too bad it was so short lived and was never really given a chance to develop.
