Jerry Gold was Gold for Murphy Brown: although he was only in a handful of episodes he was like Q on TNG, people remember him being a regular character.
Jay Thomas (Jack) had a great time: they had a gimmick on the show. The two main characters would talk directly to the camera as little asides. However, the "love" interest, Susan Dey sounded like a preachier Candice Bergen. Fortunately, they got rid of the gimmick and Dey.
And then Annie arrived. What a breath of fresh air. Did you ever see Designing Women? I didn't. I did see Annie in "CRIMES OF PASSION" and of course "GHOSTBUSTERS" and did she ever deliver.
Let's talk about Joel Murray (the Zeppo of the Murray brothers) who plays garbageman Ray, and Suzy Plakson, the statuesque beauty playing a tom-boy sports writer Meg. These two are a Mutt and Jeff pair, friends who have been a fixture in the Blue Shamrock who have known Jack for ever. Jack is no major columnist, he dreams of working for the Times.
The cast is rounded out by Joanna Gleason and Charlie Robinson, who play the bar staff.
Uneven writing, a couple of very stupid situations plagued the series, but some absolutely hilarious lines: in the penultimate episode: "Mary Margaret, I love you dearly, but who died and left you a penis?"
