Storyline

A mini-series spoof of various TV primetime sopa operas set in Fresno, America's 64th largest city and showing the raisin production family of the Kensingtons centering on the matriarch Charlotte's feud with the family's arch rival Tyler Cane, the head of a powerful raisin conglomerate. Among the players are Charlotte's son, the vile, power-mad Cane Kensington; his voluptious nympho wife Talon; and a shirtless stranger, named Torch, who gets hired as a Kensington ranch hand and captures the attentions of all women he comes into contact with.

Outrageous classic spoof of "Dallas"
24 April 2000 | by (Easton, MD) – See all my reviews

As far as we know, we are two of about ten people on planet Earth to have watched this show. This is so frustrating, because Fresno has to be one of the best shows of its kind ever produced.

Fourteen years later, my spouse and I still quip about certain memorable scenes and lines. For me, the most memorable was the breakfast table scene culminating in the "You'd think this was Roots or something" comment. For my spouse, it was Carol Burnett always telling the driver to bring around the Bentley (always in the garage under repair), and then riding, facing backward, in a broken down station wagon like nothing was wrong.

We wish other people could/would watch Fresno, so we can be sure that it was as funny as I remember (and we aren't crazy).
