First-rate Sitcom

I also loved "Cafe Americain" when it was on NBC ten years. I remember it was on Saturday evenings while on CBS there was the stodgy and somnolent "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman". It's shame that it is not on anymore, even in syndication. It's about time "Cafe Americain" should be called a classic. This is an enjoyable show: the jokes and characterizations were funny, witty and perceptive and the Parisian setting has its unique charm, complemented by a wide range of diverse characters. It is very intelligent show that deserves more following.
