Storyline

Fran is picked up in a single's bar by Bob, who looks to be her perfect man: he's handsome, single, a rich doctor and Jewish. He's so perfect, Fran quickly decides that she's going to marry him. However, her plans reach a snag when she runs into him at a family wedding and discovers that he's her cousin. Fran ends up being both disgusted and heartbroken. To help her over her misery, Maxwell decides to do something drastic: send Fran to a therapist. Dr. Jack Miller quickly discovers Fran's problem: she has an obsession with wanting to be married. Although Fran tells Maxwell that Dr. Miller has cured her of his obsession, Fran secretly uses the therapy for her own plan for happiness. Meanwhile, Val tries to convince C.C. to be her friend.

Here comes another arc!
7 October 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Having completed the "Niles tries to find out what happened between Fran and Maxwell at the end of season 3" arc, the makers of Nanny make the right decision and begin another, a full year long arc where Fran is undergoing treatment at a psychiatrist (although we actually see the sessions in only nine episodes). More importantly, the arc is about Fran's obsession to find a husband, which gives the makers a legitimate and, even more importantly, *believable* reason to keep Fran and Maxwell from out of an intimate relationship. Though, had they been braver, they would have made the decision to let Fran and Maxwell get intimate, since when they finally do it, it doesn't kill the series. But they played it safe.

As for this individual episode, it is structurally a brave departure from the usual template: it is clearly divided into two distinct parts that have different characters - in part 1 there is the Jewish doctor and in part 2 there is the psychiatrist. And on top of that, there is even a hysterically funny "Dynasty" parody, which really shows how unintentionally funny that series was (as many Spelling series were). And it can never be redundant to point out the dialog. I see that at the time of writing, there are no memorable quotes submitted, so I may have to do something about that...

As a "Twilight Zone" worthy coincidence, I must mention that when I started writing this comment, my TV was on, but I was not watching it, since "The Doctors" was on - until they announced that their guest was Fran Drescher! What are the odds? That episode seems to be number 113, and is, of course, at the time of writing, missing from the Database.
