Storyline

Murphy Brown is a very selfish, stubborn, extremely hot-tempered but also talented, resourceful, clever and caring middle-aged reporter who works for FYI News Network and at the same time tries to raise her child as an unmarried, working woman. Her friends and co-workers, Corky, Jim, Frank and Miles, try to balance between her outbursts of anger and her family, personality or even financial crises. It's a difficult life for Murphy but she's got the guts to live it... Written by Xenophon Tsakanikas <ftpadmin@antigoni.med.auth.gr>

Quotes

Stan Lansing: Though I am a sucker for that rascal's nimble wordplay, it's not Dick who has millions of housewives glued to their sets. Dick is a punster. Punsters you can replace with a relative. It's Dottie, Murphy. Dottie is the show.
Murphy: Ah-ha. So what you're saying is, that you're willing to be Dickless, but you refuse to be Dotless.

Watch it at Nick@Nite
10 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

This show is GOOD! I watched it in Pearl Channel, TVB in Hong Kong when I was in high school. I LOVE it!!! Candice Bergeon did a great job in the show! She is also in the movie "Miss Congeniality" and "Sweet Home Alabama."

I tried to search for the show in the broadcast network when I came to US. However, I could not find it. But good news is, Nich@Nite channel bought Murphy Brown, and they are going to show it in January 2005. I am excited about this. Also, I think CBS should have it on DVDs, so people can buy and enjoy it whenever they want! We should send request to CBS, asking them to release Murphy Brown's DVDs.
