intelligent,politically incorrect ,smart, funny,perfect casting show
3 June 2004 | by (lake city, florida) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the funniest shows on TV. The writing is sharp and quick-witted and the casting is perfect. Especially the actress who plays Rita. Whoopi Goldberg plays it politically incorrect all the way and offends just about everyone. Every one of my friends who have seen the show love it. If it's cancelled or doesn't do well in the ratings, it'll probably be because she stepped on some higher up's toes in the industry.This show will one day rest beside The Golden Girls, Designing Women, and The Nanny. Whoopi's old series "Bagdad Cafe" was excellent in the beginning episodes but everything changed halfway thru the series and it was eventually cancelled. Hopefully this won't happen to this series.
