If you liked "Soap" you'll like this. It's about a crazy family with evil sister Denise Sandler (Teri Garr) and good sister Charlotte. It just involved Denise trying to get everything her way and will do anything to get it. Naturally they have some very unusual family members and friends.
This aired for only a few months in 1991. In fact it was the first new show that was cancelled! I never figured out why. It was funny, racy (for 1991) and kept pushing the envelope every chance it got. Garr was just great in her role--she was clearly relishing every moment she was on screen. Also it had a blind character (played by Mark Blankfield) who accidentally destroys a laboratory completely while trying to help Charlotte. That came under attack by a group for blind people but it was repeated again a week or two later! I have to admit I was in hysterics both times I saw it. He also accidentally kisses another man on the lips--pretty risky for 1991.
It was WAY ahead of its time and was probably too much for 1991 audiences. I think it would be a hit today. Where's the DVD release? I give this a 10.
