Storyline

Set in fictional Mercy, Indiana, this comedy centers around four completely different women who have only two connections to each other: they each are married to a Buchanan boy, and they each cannot stand their mother-in-law. Alex, married to Roy, is a Jewish feminist from New York City. Vivian, married to Ed, is a frumpy Hoosier housewife with two children from hell, twins Lyndon and P.J. Delilah, married to preacher Charles, is a somewhat ditzy former stripper from Corpus Christi, Texas. Bree, newly married to Jesse, is a perky Californian who used to work with her mother. They constantly are trading barbs with the cruel but hilarious Mother Buchanan, who tries as hard as she can to make their lives a living hell through meddling and manipulating, her two specialties.

A Talented Cast of Strong Women!
2 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know why some shows get canceled. This show related to one of my co-workers when I worked at the supermarket about an overbearing mother-in-law played by the Oscar winner Eileen Heckart. Her daughters-in-law were played by Broadway professional veterans like Judith Ivey and Harriet Sansom Harris as well as soap veteran actress Charlotte Ross and Beth Broderick. The husbands were rarely shown because it was really a show centered around the relationships between the sisters-in-laws and their mother-in-law. The newest in-law was played by Charlotte Ross. Beth Broderick played the more sensual wife while Judith Ivey's character was Jewish and the oldest of all the Buchanan wives. Harriet Sansom Harris was divine as the snobby wife who is always a show stopper in any performance. Of course there was Eileen Heckart who can make a great entrance and say more with a facial expression than a thousand words.
