I loved this show!, 1 February 2000
Author: MrEguy from West Hollywood, CA

The characters were each uniquely individual. The Parisian scenario enabled many different international types to interact in many highly comedic circumstances. Valerie Bertinelli's love for comedy drove this series from the start. Fabiana, the tempestuous Italiana and her perpetually jealous lover were hilarious. Marcel's on and off relationship with Holly (Valerie Bertinelli) set the stage for great interferences by Guest Star lovers. Peter Noah, the producer/creator was at his best here. NBC's short-sighted hasty cancellation, preceded by the usual "time-slot shuffle" left its audience confused and ultimately disappointed. Bring it back on cable, at least, so those episodes can live again!
