Trivia

The aircraft in the opening and closing credits (N121PP) is still in use with Cape Air Airlines of Hyannis, Massachusetts. One of Cape Air's primary destinations in its New England operation (they also operate in Florida, the Caribbean, and Micronesia) is, in fact, Nantucket. This particular aircraft exclusively serves the New England market, so on any given day it is probably flying in and out of Nantucket. When filmed for the credits, 121PB was in the livery of the now-defunct Express Air of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Shortly after the filming, it became the property of Cape Air and has been used in that airline's service ever since. Prior to Express Air, it was in service for Provincetown-Boston Airlines which went out of business the year before Cape Air started. See more »

Goofs

Early on in the series, Helen (Crystal Bernard) makes a reference to her sister "Loraine". Years later Amy Yasbeck joins the series playing Helen's only sister "Casey". See more »

Quotes

Helen: I got suckered into making the stupid welcoming speech at the reunion tonight.
Fay Schlob Dumbly DeVay Cochran: Oh come on, it can't be that bad. Let me hear your opening line.

I love this show!
1 March 2002 | by (Jersey City, NJ) – See all my reviews

I never watched the show when it had its run on NBC. I just recently started to check out the reruns on USA, and I really enjoy it! It's a very funny, well-written show with a great cast, led by the great Steven Weber.

Actually, I started to feel curious about the show after watching the movie "Sour Grapes." It's a hilarious movie (if you haven't see it, please check it out!) that's written and directed by Larry David, the co-creator of my favorite show "Seinfeld." Weber was great in the role, and he just has exquisite timing.

Well, I started watching the reruns on a regular basis, always looking forward to them to get some big laughs. Tony Shalhoub is another fine actor, and he is the best out of the whole supporting cast. His phony accent and outrageous antics are hilarious. Thomas Haden Church, from the short-lived but hugely funny sitcom "Ned and Stacey," is also very talented, and he's a joy to watch.

If you, like me, never got the chance to see the show on NBC, please check it out on USA. It's an absolute riot!

My score: 8 (out of 10)
