David Edwin Knight,
From the frizzy hair to the shoulder-pads to jokes about Michael Milken and Leona Helmsley, you can definitely tell this show was made in '89-'90. All that aside, not bad at all. The show does not continue where the movie left off, I guess because a show about a woman whose dreams of success and meeting Mr. Right had already come true would be pretty boring. Instead the sitcom finds Tess McGill (Sandra Bullock) still trying to claw her way to the top with obstacles like a power-hungry boss and impediments in the form of her Staten Island friends and family.
Obviously, the real draw here is seeing a green, 26 year old Sandra Bullock before she was an Oscar winning superstar, and in that sense Working Girl is a bonanza. In the pilot episode her eyebrows look like two black caterpillars kissing and her hair looks like it was styled by chimps with crimpers, but by the 6th episode her brows had been separated, the kinks in her hair transformed into loose waves, and she looked like the Sandra Bullock we know and love today. In fact, it's amazing how little she has aged in the 22 years since Working Girl.
If you're a fan of Sandra Bullock, this is essential viewing. You will not be disappointed.
