Storyline

Fran Reeves, a frantic Jewish divorcée, fell madly in love with Riley Douglas Martin, a lovely, hunky contractor half her age, who moves in with her and her nasty ex Ted's two adolescent children, Joshua 'Josh', a timid med school drop-out, and Allison, a bitchy high-school girl. They all have a hard enough time finding out where they fit in this reconstituted, unofficial household, not an actual family, and things are even worse whenever outsiders wonder or ignore how it all works, given the shifted generations, Riley being barely older then his 'step-kids', actually an ideal big brother if only he were a sibling rather than the provider. Alliances and antagonisms shift, but ultimately true love triumphs and things work out. Written by KGF Vissers

Gonna be wonderful!
18 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the taping of "Shacking Up" on Dec. 10. It was great. Believable characters, convincing acting, good performance. Fran Drescher was very believable as a 40-something-year-old mother, and she made the kids hers. The relationship between her and her 25 year old lover was quite believable, too. Funny, pleasant, enjoyable.

In this show, Drescher is still very funny and energetic, but doesn't exhibit the kind of near-hysteria that she did in her previous hit sitcom, "The Nanny." While "The Nanny" showed her at her best at the time, In "Shacking Up,'Fran is more down to earth, and seems to be more relaxed in the new show. She owned the role of Fran Reeves, and it truly was, and will be, a pleasure to "tune in" to watch it.

For any divorced woman with children, this particular episode will be more than believable. It will probably be a reality check, too. Charles Shaunnessy guest starred as Drescher's ex-husband. I understand that she is having quite a few other top performers guest star, too.

It should be another hit for Drescher, and a major star maker for the rest of the cast. By the way,the show has another new name..."Livin' With Fran." Five stars and a couple of thumbs up.
