Love It, Wish It Were Still On
25 November 2001 | by LuvSoprSee all my reviews

A charming blend of old favorites (Kay), new faces (Linda Granger, Ruby Romaine), strong guest stars, and inventive sketches. My favorites were Ruby and Linda, but I loved nearly every single one. A truly entertaining and wildly creative series, and a superb showcase for Tracey.
