Ingenuis comedy Series.
5 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

When i heard that MOONLIGHTING star Cybill Shepherd was returning to television, i was thrilled. And after seeing the series, i was even more thrilled. as CYBILL is without-a-doubt one of the best comedy series i've ever seen. Cybill Shepherd was just brillant in this series, as was mutliple Emmy-Winner Christine Baranski. This series featured first-class writing, and first class acting, and launched the careers of a bevy of young stars, including Danny Masterson (that 70's show), Alicia Witt (Urban Ledgend), Peter Krause (Sports Night, Six Feet Under and Dede Phiffer (For Your Love, yes michelles sisters!).. The only complaint i have is that Ms. Shepherd never got an Emmy for her work on this brillant series.
