Storyline

Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) 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 Sherwood (Faith Ford), Frank Fontana (Joe Regalbuto), Jim Dial (Charles Kimbrough), and Miles Silverberg (Grant Shaud), 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 has the guts to live it. Written by Xenophon Tsakanikas <ftpadmin@antigoni.med.auth.gr>

Quotes

Murphy: I was waiting for the universe to dispense some justice but sometimes the universe is just too damn slow. The effects of putting Nair in someone's styling gel, however, only take a few minutes.

THE BEST!!!!
6 May 2000 | by anivaldSee all my reviews

Murphy Brown is the best sitcom ever! It's very smart, funny, and Candice, what can I say, she was so brilliant and deserved all the Emmys she won and even more, I'm her biggest fan. But let's not forget the rest of the cast, they did a great job too. Too bad the series ended. I miss you guys!
