Storyline

Maria was on her way to becoming a beautician when her mother's illness forced the 22 year-old to come home to care for her. Maria's mom has since moved on to a better place. Maria has moved on as well - to be the maid for the insanely wealthy Ridgeway dynasty. As one of many servants who dote on the demented and dysfunctional family, Maria juggles extremely important tasks like dusting their many unread books, vacuuming their priceless rugs and picking up after their prized poodle Pookie. But the biggest surprise comes when Maria discovers there's not only a class struggle between the upstairs and the downstairs, but there's an all out war among The Help! Written by Anonymous

The Titanic had a better chance
3 February 2005 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

I was set against this show from the first time I saw it. What was wrong with it? Where do I start? First of all, the was no storyline. The tagline for this show was, "...the Help get even." Of course, whatever this meant was never specified on the show. So we had no idea where this show was going. Most shows get better after the pilot. The only thing worse than the plot was the characters. I think they were supposed to be funny. The nanny was a tramp, the limo driver was a con man, the trainer was an airhead, and the dog walker was a Jekyll-and-Hyde psycho. The maid was the only character I liked. Every band of weirdos needs a ring leader, and that was the maid. I hope the actress finds a better role.

This show could have been funny, but with no plot, bad jokes and underdeveloped characters, it just couldn't keep its head above water.
