Storyline

The soap-operatic story follows the fortunes of three ambitious youngish people: Billy, secretary and then wife to an older zillionaire, whose death frees Billy to start up a Beverly Hills boutique ("Scruples") and to pursue the pretentious and manly but commercially woebegone film director Vito Orsini. Meanwhile, Valentine, a French would-be fashion designer, and Spider, a parking lot attendant/photographer/stud, struggle up the ladder, become buddies and put off a romance that seems inevitable despite their difference in height. After Valentine and Spider become Billy's employees, they team up to navigate a number of speed bumps on the road to happiness. Written by Andrei Blok

Lindsay Wagner, Queen of the Miniseries
11 August 2002 | by (Virginia, US) – See all my reviews

Oh my goodness!!!! The Bionic Woman was a much more believable role for Lindsay Wagner than this. She plays Billie Winthrop Ikehorn, a character that morphs from a chubby teenager to an elegant woman in her mid- to late-thirties. If it weren't for the fact that she has ENORMOUS legs, she would not have looked like a fat girl, which is the only part of her character that she nails. Barry Bostwick is a dream, as usual, with his tremendous head of hair and some very tight jeans. Marie-France Pisier is probably a jam-up actress in France, but she does not translate well to English. She played the luckless yet conniving Noelle Page in "The Other Side of Midnight." She played both characters identically,with the two emotions she posesses; blank and pissy. The book was much much better than this miniseries. At least with a book, you can use your imagination and put faces on the characters that make sense to you. Nothing about this makes sense. >
