Never had a chance
27 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember when this show premiered. The TV guide for that same week already had an article in it which said it would probably be canceled. I liked the characters, especially Fabiana and her boyfriend "pants". The Madam Yubara character was a hoot. "Back in my country, any woman who looks better than me I have her kilt. You'd be surprised how fast the rest of the women let themselves go."

There were a lot of funny touches making fun of the french. In one episode Fabiana passes out at a fashion show. They take her to the hospital and nuns were walking down the halls smoking.

The actor who played her boyfriend Marcel was very good. I really thought he was french.
