14 December 2007 | by (2 hours north of Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

That I remember this show twenty plus years later says a lot about the quality of it. I am not a sitcom fan, but there was something in the cast and premise that caused me to enjoy this show quite a bit. It also exposed me as a child to Peter Cook, and as I grew up I learned to appreciate his other work.

This series stars Mimi Kennedy, also known as the former Mrs. Tom Cruise, Peter Cook, and the late Dana Hill as Gabby. When Gabby's Mom (Kennedy) needs help around the house, she ends up hiring a man. Not just any man, but a not so friendly English bloke played up to the nines (but not overplayed) by Cook.

If cable ever airs this show, I recommend a view or two.
