Apparently France isn't funny to most
17 April 1999 | by (East Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I don't know why this show did not last long. It was my favorite show when it was on TV. I watched it every week and still have some episodes on tape from when I was out and could not see it when it was on. This show only lasted a season, if less than that, but I thought the show was very amusing. It had its moments where there were side splitting humor, but it was never boring, in my view. The entire cast was a scream. Some of the episodes took a more serious tone, like Fabiana's eating disorder, but most of them were just good fun. There were plenty of sexual innuendos which, I thought, just added to the humor. But, unfortunately it was canceled. I think a lot of people missed out on a good series.
