Trivia

This show would regularly steal storylines directly from previously aired episodes from the Ellen (1994) sitcom. Oftentimes, Cybill even copied everything almost scene-by-scene, such as the episode where Ellen comes home with her friend to a robbery in progress in her apartment, (so does Cybill with Maryanne in tow), takes a self-defense class, buys a male mannequin as crime prevention to sit on her couch etc. This would go on for almost the entire run of the series.

Cybill is the Best
15 May 2006 | by sunnetteSee all my reviews

I have loved Cybill Shepherd ever since Moonlighting and have seen every single movie she has ever been in. She is a greatly diverse actress. She is also a great Jazz singer. Her book Cybill Disobeidance is wonderfully candid and funny. I love her free spirit and her love of life. You feel like you are in the room with her when you watch her act. By far the best show of hers was Cybill. Her on screen chemistry and antics with Christine Baranski were top notch (look out Bruce Willis!) and it brought out Cybills best acting. It was also very interesting how it was based on her life. No other show is more deserving to be released on video in the USA!!!
