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.

Another That Should Be Brought Out From the Vaults!
5 February 2001 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I can't believe CBS killed "The 5 Mrs. Buchanans!" The cast was superb and the dialogue was hysterical. The situations could be corny at times, but nearly every sitcom drastically improves if given enough time. The sad thing is that this show didn't need much improvement. From the start it had a clever sharp-tongued wit about it that you rarely find in new sitcoms -- very close to the early seasons of "Designing Women." Unfortunately, CBS decided to bury this on Saturday nights with minuscule ratings. I thought perhaps Lifetime Network might end up with it, but alas, 7 years later it's still in the vaults. Quite a shame since it really had all the makings of a hit show!
