Brentwood & Nan & Daughter.
22 November 2005 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

First,let me say I'm glad I'm not the only person to remember this sitcom. Back in 1981,I was a regular viewer of TV sitcoms of all the networks and I really liked this one. Peter Cook's butler character Brentwood puts one in mind of the butler from the movie Aurthur,even though Brentwood is a little more brash.

The plots each week were based around American vs. British customs in the household. As well as a man having a woman for a boss. Each week a new problem presented itself between Brentwood & Nan and sometimes even the daughter was a foil for the butler. At times he would even counsel her with advice. (Which seemed to be the mainstay of many TV leading characters at that time I.E. "The voice of reason". )

The show was canceled mid-way through season 2 because the ratings just weren't there. A shame too because the show was very well written and was at no time silly or slap-stickish. It was intelligent comedy,which is what one expects from CBS. Ten stars for a rating. If ever you see this on DVD,buy it! I sure will! The set up of this show was later used on ABC's,"Who's The Boss?" when a woman advertises for a housekeeper and get a macho Italian/American male with a daughter.

Peter Cook passed away in the '90s.
