Storyline

Pepper Dennis is an ambitious reporter with her sights set on anchoring Chicago's top-rated evening news broadcast. Complicating her daily life is the fact that her spoiled, needy and recently separated sister Kathy, has moved in with her. Worst of all, the hot guy Pepper woke up with one morning, Charlie Babcock, just showed up in the newsroom, grabbed her dream job and is now practically her boss. She's trying to despise him, but Charlie is smart, handsome, funny, available and interested. She gets much needed support from her close friends, the TV station's makeup artist Kimmy, and cameraman Chick, who has a secret crush on Pepper. Written by JustAli25

Better Than Movies !

Everybody knows about the eternal clash between TV and cinema. I even believe that for instance nudity during the 1990s and the 2000s became some effective weapon at that war. So it's about how any team of those would make you be at home or leave it. Yet when it comes to "Pepper Dennis", I definitely will stay home, or even go speedily to it whenever it's on. This show is so cute and comic, it centers on very attractive character, almost all the cast is hilarious, and every episode is an assured merriment of pure fun. It happens that the cinematic romantic comedies at the 2000s aren't that good, so when I watch Pepper Dennis I feel impressed out of this effort (in writing mainly) which's not available for a lot of movies out there. The hot witty conflicts, the sarcastic ironies, the fast pace, and the soft mood are already here. It even got a yummy colorful look, like a tasty tart more than a show. I always recall the first episode as a proof of being excellent to rare ideal extent. And so every episode managed cleverly to leave the feel of being a fine 45 minutes movie. Like elegant one of the 1950s or 1960s, or maybe better. (Rebecca Romijn) is another surprise that confirms the loss of cinema in this battle, this show illustrates how she got charisma, talent, and a special flavor as a super comedienne, that's totally different from cinematic works she was in like (Femme Fatale) which was nothing but utter crap where she has been displayed as a sex toy only. Even (Brooke Burns) shows for the first time a talent else being a fascinating beauty in a Bikini. Actually the show itself says a lot about women succeed without relying on their sexuality, so this show talked about something and achieved it as well. It was just (Josh Hopkins) as (Charlie Babcock) who wasn't the right choice at all, he lacks the equal presence or the spontaneous joviality compared to the lead, and although the character was well written, but I didn't believe that (Hopkins) is that ladies' man, and he still not convincing as the most beloved number one anchor in TV ! In any case, this is one of the most enjoyable TV shows in the 2000s, I'm so mad that it didn't get the attention it deserves, or the time period to continue for more, to end up like a mini-series with 13 episodes and sort of forced ending!. I'm dying to know what "poor ratings" that due to them, the show got slaughtered (read : cancelled) ?! What kind of fools watched it and didn't love it ? or what kind of fools didn't watch it in the first place ?!. Anyhow not many shows (or movies) could reach to this level of sweetness. This time the TV smartly WINS. But sorry, their makers were unlucky just like us missing them and the joy they dazzled us with through all what we're suffering of ugly shows, movies, life !. So, whenever I saw a hasty, unfunny, bad romantic comedy I'll salute Pepper Dennis for being the right thing, the real deal, and a brilliant short memory. For anyone didn't experience it yet : Watch, learn, and enjoy.
