"Designing Women" is one of those rare shows that is utter perfection from start to finish. Each and every character is truly defined from the first scene of the pilot until the last frame of the finale. The cast is glorious and the writing pitch perfect. You will literally laugh until you can't laugh anymore. Delta Burke as uppity aging beauty queen Suzanne Sugarbaker is the glue that holds this show together. The show started to flounder when she left the series but rebounded with the casting of Judity Ivey as B.J. Poteet. Linda Bloodworth-Thomason the creator/writer/executive producer of this show flawlessly created a world in which these hilarious characters could exist without seeming unrealistic or over the top. At times the show could seem preachy to some but the delivery of the lines and the overall performance always made up for that. your sides will ache from watching this show it is hilarious.
