Instructive
12 April 2004 | by (Gillingham, ent, England) – See all my reviews

I had been aware of Alicia Witt in my filmic peripheral vision, but this series converted me into a fan. My father told me; 'Always meet a girls mother before considering getting serious - you will spend the next 25 years watching the daughter become her mother.'

Spending 25 years watching Alicia Witt become Cybil Shepard? Where do I sign? Julia Sowala becoming Jennifer Saunders? Maybe not.

I had become aware of Alicia Witt in my filmic 'peripheral vision', but not as a comic actress. It defies dramatic, though not comic convention for a pretty girl to take comic risks, deal with their vulnerability, and send herself up. Toy with my expectations, why don't you.

Christine Baranski may have walked away with every scene she was in, and have an order of magnitude more scope for layered, funny, and subtle comic acting than Megan Mullally from 'Will & Grace', but Alicia Witt is the real find of this show. Bravo and fair play to Cybil Shepard for not using her veto to remain the prettiest actress on the show.
