Storyline

Yet another movie-turned-TV series that flopped was this comedy based on the 1987 Diane Keaton film of the same name. J.C. was the picture of Yuppiedom, a stylish, single, Harvard-educated lawyer aggressively pushing her way up the executive ladder at a large corporation. Dates called her "The Tiger Lady". Then on her doorstep appeared baby Elizabeth, left to her by a recently deceased English relative. J.C.'s high-powered career was thrown into turmoil. She tried hard to juggle the demands of instant motherhood and career, but never could seem to decide which life she wanted. Seemingly oblivious to her plight were Mr.Curtis, her demanding boss; secretary Charlotte; fellow lawyer Arlene; and officious young assistant Ken, who was constantly angling for her job. Helga was the fearsome nanny who took care of Elizabeth while J.C. played office politics. Written by TrinaPreston3aol.com

A Mile A Minute!!!
26 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plight of a "Roaring Eighties" career woman with a five to nine job, bombarded with this, plagued with that, who's doing what and how does this really affect me, after all, I 've only got seventeen seconds to think about it...This emerging third generation liberated woman thing is going really well, there's just one more thing!!.... NOW I WANT A BABY!!!.....I'm a New York executive making $250,000 a year, and I never seem to do the right thing!!!! This T.V. series in many ways was better than the movie... It was much faster in pace, and it made caffeine a much more serious problem than relationships, or shall I say lack of them!!...NBC was at the pinnacle of cutting edge television in the late eighties, knifing and witty dialog, as well as social relevancy were injected into this television series by the nanosecond...These characteristics were coy and flippant, that is why they went unnoticed, at the same time, the professional subtlety involved was extremely entertaining!! I just don't know why this program as well as many others weren't as popular as they should have been!!! Next time, the television executives at NBC should post a sign in Times Square...WARNING: TELEVISION WORTH WATCHING DURING PRIMETIME!!
