Trivia

After checking in at the Oasis Motel in Las Vegas, David Strickland consumed several bottles of beer. He hanged himself with a bed sheet over the ceiling beam and died during the morning hours of March 22, 1999. After much discussion, the writers of "Suddenly Susan" decided to deal with Strickland's death directly. In the show's third season finale, Todd did not show up to work one day. When Susan called regarding tickets to a show, his pager vibrated on his desk. Susan spent the day searching for Todd, learning for the first time about a number of good deeds he did throughout his life. The episode ends when the police visited Susan and her Office staff, as she was asking if they know where Todd was. The details of Todd's fate were left ambiguous. The episode was interspersed with out-of-character interviews of Shields and the supporting cast. See more »

Searching for something nice to say
24 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The one and only reason I ever tuned into this show was to see Judd Nelson on a regular basis. And on that point I was not disappointed. I found him to be charming and engaging and quite funny. And a pleasant surprise was the comedic abilities of the late David Strickland. He had an endearing quality combined with a knack for delivery. The glowing review ends there. Brooke Shields was hit and miss, with a strong emphasis on miss. She could be humorous at times, but it was usually due more to circumstance than her delivery or timing. Kathy Griffin's Vicky had an obnoxious nastiness that could wrangle a snicker out of me every now and again. But, Aundrea Benewald and Nestor Carbonell were forgettable window dressing for the most part. The last season was not pleasant and I think I only suffered through the season opener. I don't try and sit through any of the fourth season re-runs, even if nothing is on but infomercials.
