Never had a chance
29 July 2004 | by MikurtisSee all my reviews

Okay, it wasn't as funny as "Designing Women" but this was a funny show. It had an excellent cast... had it been given more of a chance, it may actually have been better than the show it spun off from. Suzanne Sugarbaker was back and was better than ever! The rest of the characters were pretty much darker versions of the characters on "DW". Teri Garr was a recovering alcoholic and journalist... with a sarcasm similar to Mary Jo. Malone was a wide-eyed innocent divorced Charlene with two children who idolized the Menendez Brothers. Natalie was Suzanne's adviser... she exuded the class and sophistication of Julia but was a Conservative... and had an affair with a married Congressman who was now in jail.
