Franny, The Nanny!
Fran Fine (Fran Drescher, Saturday Night Fever) was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, 'till her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes.

What was she to do? Where was she to go? She was out on her fanny. So over the bridge from Flushing to the Sheffield's door, she was there to sell make up, but the father saw more.

She had style, she had flair, she was there, that's how she became the nanny.

In case you haven't already clicked, I had just typed out that most part of the beginning theme to 'The Nanny' - and that's exactly how the story was set. A make-up seller ends up at the door of a Broadway producer and becomes the nanny for his 3 children.

The English producer Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessey, Days Of Our Lives) hates Andrew Llyodd Webber, and is known to say "I love you" before taking it straight back, again.

He has his faithful butler, Niles (Daniel Davis), and his arch-enemy and Maxwell's associate, Chastity-Claire Babcock (Lauren Lane) - these two are known for their sniping remarks and catty coments.

Fran helps the three kids Maggie, Brighton and Gracie (Nicole Tom, Beethoven; Benjamin Salisbury and Madeline Zima, Mr. Nanny) through boyfriends, girlfriends and the usual teenage stuff.

Adding to the mix is Fran's food-loving mother, Sylvia. Syvia's mom, Yetta and Fran's best friend, Val (Rachel Chaggal).

For 6 years, 'The Nanny' was a hilarious sitcom that never stopped being funny. With guest appearances like Elizabeth Taylor and Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop, its no wonder this show caught the attention of millions around the world! It will be missed. 8½/10.
