User Reviews

 
love the show, love Fran of course, and look forward to every new episode!
10 May 2012 | by rdwill1See all my reviews

The only reason I don't give it a 10 is because sometimes, the writing falls falls short of really being funny, and borders on silly, BUT -- I adore Fran Drescher, and she could read the phone book and I would be entertained, so I hope the show has a long run, so I can get my Fran-fix on a regular basis! As a woman with a "happily divorced" type of scenario myself (not a gay ex, but I think of my "ex" as an EX-tra husband since I am remarried), I appreciate the concept of the show -- and that even though divorced, there are still references to Peter being her husband.

All the cast are great -- perfect comedic timing! I'm happy that Fran and her ex created HAPPILY DIVORCED!
