If this show was a person, it would be called Rodney Dangerfield
This undeservedly-trashed gem might very well be the most underrated sitcom of the past decade. After initial good reviews, the critics unfairly began tearing it apart, and the American public at large - who aren't exactly known for their keen abilities to form their own opinions - promptly followed suit. What the detractors obviously never got was the series' clever satire, something that is sorely missing from that "other" Bright, Kauffman and Crane show (the bafflingly-popular "Friends"). "Veronica's Closet" tore apart the frivolous underwear industry, the phony bigwig designers and the vacuous high-profile fashion models, all with ease. The casting was terrific with Kirstie Alley, Kathy Najimy, Wallace Langham, Daryl Mitchell and even Dan Cortese exhibiting great chemistry and playing well off on one another. The series would hit a bumpy patch in the middle of its run, thanks to NBC's interference, endless cast and producer shuffling, and the unfortunate miscasting of the otherwise talented Ron Silver. Sadly, just as it was beginning to get back on track towards the end, NBC treated it like the unwanted stepchild, yanked it off the schedule for the likes of "God, the Devil & Bob" (which they cancelled a mere three weeks after premiering), and finally junked it before the finale could even air.
Even at its worst, "Veronica's Closet" was far from the worst show on television. But just like Rodney Dangerfield, it never got any respect.
