Storyline

Hope, a down-to-earth, happily married mom of three in Glen Falls, Ohio, had her tidy world up-ended by the arrival of her celebrity sister, Faith. Faith was living the high life in Hollywood as a daytime soap opera star until her soap's character, Ashley Storm, was suddenly and unceremoniously killed off on "The Sacred and the Sinful" by her evil twin. After a year under her roof wreaking occasional havoc, Hope can attest that you can kill the diva off on the daytime drama, but you can't take the drama out of the diva. Written by Anonymous

Goofiness at its Best !

You may say a lot of bad things concerning such a show : traditional, stereotypes, overacting, goofy.. Whatever. Though, strangely it worked and with honors ! I feel big part of its real joy came from the funny 2 leads Faith Ford and Kelly Ripa. True that I don't know how they selected Ripa as number 85 in FHM's "100 Sexiest Women in the World 2005" ! But the thing that I know too well is that Ripa and Ford both are so cute and vigorous on the screen, having a productive chemistry, looking interestingly idiot or honestly childish, and by their overacting they deliver hilarious performance. The rest of the cast wasn't that good but close. The scripts were surprisingly hitting the mark every time, I've never felt bored, and it managed to be unpredictable, for instance : How Faith is going to survive in the soap opera she had part in ? How Faith will do in the shop that she went to work at ?, and How Faith and Hope may do when they found themselves imprisoned in a supermarket ?, or unit to save Hope's daughter from some evil party ? By the way these episodes were memorable and top notch. It wasn't another sitcom on TV, albeit it seemed so. It was so nice sitcom despite any criticism. And it's a rare time to love a work with what are supposed to be its faults, or maybe love it because those very faults !
