Storyline

Maria was on her way to becoming a beautician when her mother's illness forced the 22 year-old to come home to care for her. Maria's mom has since moved on to a better place. Maria has moved on as well - to be the maid for the insanely wealthy Ridgeway dynasty. As one of many servants who dote on the demented and dysfunctional family, Maria juggles extremely important tasks like dusting their many unread books, vacuuming their priceless rugs and picking up after their prized poodle Pookie. But the biggest surprise comes when Maria discovers there's not only a class struggle between the upstairs and the downstairs, but there's an all out war among The Help! Written by Anonymous

IMHO, the worst show on TV
11 April 2004 | by lordkinboteSee all my reviews

I was actually surprised that some people actually liked it. I'm not going to cut down those people 'cause everything is subjective, but I just thought that there was nothing to like about it except for the cleavage and if you don't like that, then there's nothing. I decided after watching the 3rd episode (for the cleavage) that it's best to watch this show with the mute on. I agree with the person that said that the characters are annoying. None of them are likeable, except for maybe Mindy Cohn's "the Cook". But the sad thing is that I find NONE of the jokes funny at all. I don't even crack a smile during 98% of each episode (most of that is rolling my eyes) and the other 2% is, at most, a chuckle. A sitcom that is not funny is not a comedy, it's a tragedy and it just makes you bored and annoyed. I'm gonna say the fault of this show lies solely on the writing. The actors and everyone else do the best with what they have but you can't make unfunny writing funny, no matter how good you may be. Of the actors I've seen before, I've seen them all do better elsewhere. David Faustino doesn't get to do anything but grunt so how can anyone say he's a good or bad actor from this? They give him nothing. But, it's a paycheck for the actors and good for them. I just think they all deserve work better than this. Like I said before though, to each his own 'cause some people obviously do find it funny. What really bugs me is that Wonderfalls is off the air and this show is still on. The world is topsy turvy.
