Jodi Long and Lila Kaye rule!
20 October 2003 | by (Illinois, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of either of these actors by name before, but I had seen Kaye in a show called "Mama Malone," which was also cancelled too soon! In that show she played an Italian, in this show she played an American. She's actually British. Wow. As for Long, she played her character so over-the-top it was a stitch just looking at her. Valerie was great as usual as the glue holding this bunch together. The only reason this show didn't last is because they stuck it on Saturday night after a show that critics despised, "The Mommies." They tried to move it away at some point but it was too late. Ironically, "The Mommies" was renewed and this show wasn't. For shame, NBC.
