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

Pilot episode review
6 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

Although only one episode of THE HELP has aired so far, I think it is fair to say that it was the best episode of any show in television history. Calling the pilot episode hilarious would be the understatement of the decade. The pilot episode was the funniest thing I have ever seen. Pilot episodes for television series are usually kind of lame since the writers have to spend the whole episode establishing the characters and the story of the show, but with THE HELP, the story and characters were established within the first five minutes, leaving the rest of the episode with non-stop laughs. I can't wait until next week's episode. This is the new MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN!
