Sitcom based on the 1987 indie hit "Bagdad Café" follows two women, a desert motel and diner owner and her guest whose husbands just left them, who slowly develop a rocky friendship. Several colorful characters live there as well.
The plot: A family runs and lives in a convenient store. Hilarity ensues. I must admit it has one of the most addicting theme songs I've ever heard (which isn't necessarily a good thing). The wife wasn't bad, but reminded me a lot of Selma Diamond from Night Court (probably on purpose) and the "son" looked like he was in his late 20's.
The "hilarity" I remember: Biker dude: Wow, I love pain! I just love pain! *hits himself with something* I just love pain. Whoa that was great!
More hilarity: Son: Mom, I have a stomach ache, can I have a chili dog?
I only wish I could get this crap out of my head.
