Christine Baranski (Cybill) "Marsha Bickner" in the show, is a multi-talented woman she acts, sings. I think she that she is really good, in all the things she does. She was my favorite character in Cybill. She was and is witty. I enjoyed the show which has that New York, Seinfeld, Neil Simon, type of rhythm. The opening of the show has that Broadway theater type of entrance.
The script was very funny, and Christine Baranski is really good about playing those powerful yet excessively needy type of women.
I have always liked those shows where they do a live broadcast, such Mary Tyler Moore and Murphy Brown. Both of those shows ran many seasons. In the first episode of the show, that cocky guy asking why the guy from Indiana wore glasses, his answer was: to see! Duh, that was quite funny. I know that feeling. I had some lots of class mates in law school who wore glasses just to look smart! Ha! That is a reality for those who feel they have to live up to an image. I loved the show and wish it does well for many seasons to come.
