After checking in at the Oasis Motel in Las Vegas, David Strickland consumed several bottles of beer. He hanged himself with a bed sheet over the ceiling beam, and died during the morning hours of March 22, 1999. After much discussion, the writers of this show decided to deal with Strickland's death directly. In the show's third season finale, Todd did not show up to work one day. When Susan called regarding tickets to a show, his pager vibrated on his desk. Susan spent the day searching for Todd, learning for the first time about several good deeds he did throughout his life. The episode ends when the police visited Susan and her Office staff, as she was asking if they know where Todd was. The details of Todd's fate were left ambiguous. The episode was interspersed with out-of-character interviews of Shields and the supporting cast. See more »

Brooke Shields was long overdue for recognition when she was finally given her chance to shine in this funny, quiet, unassuming little gem. What people seem to forget was, that it finished its first year in the top 4 in the Nielson ratings. It more than held viewers from the lead in show. Then NBC foolishly moved it. Always the kiss of death...or at least the beginning of the proverbial handwriting on the wall. However, this show defied the odds and improved in years 2 and 3! Thanks mainly to Brooke's self-deprecating humor and delivery which was reminiscent of Mary Tyler Moore. And supporting her was the cast's individual and unique contributions which were also reminiscent of that glorious cast of MTM. Now, in all fairness the shows writing didn't rival the show I have just used in comparison, but it more than surpassed shows that were on TV for triple the number of years than SS. It is more than worth your time for viewing! One day, if she returns to Movies and TV, Mrs. Henchy will receive her long overdue awards of merit to go with her long overdue "awards of motherhood"!
