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.

The best sitcom ever written...!
24 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was definitely the best series I have ever seen. It related to so many people, having relatives with whom we have nothing in common except being part of the family, and a conniving mother-in-law who wants nothing more than happiness for her sons for whom no other woman could possibly be good enough. The mischievous reactions brought upon by the 3 daughters-in-law was also very hilarious.

Emma could make me burst in laugh with just a facial expression or her unforgettable "Hellooo!" when the front door opened. Never understood why it was eliminated. Maybe was it too witty for some people, I don't know.

If you haven't seen this series, it's a must. All 17 episodes can be found on YouTube, although each broken down in 3 parts. In the meantime we can only expect that some day, one of the TV channels playing oldies will bring it back for everyone who has never had the opportunity to see it.

Whenever I am feeling down, I watch one of the episodes, and it makes me feel great.

Enjoy !
