For those who missed it , Stacked is great fun, if a bit racy, at moments
Skylar (Pamela Anderson) goes into a San Fran area bookstore called Stacks one fine day. She needs a book on relationships NOW. Very eager to help is one of the co-owners, Stuart (Brian Scolaro), who is please as punch to have such a stunning female in the place. His brother, fellow owner Gavin (Elon Gold) is less certain, being more cerebral. In fact, Gavin, who is a not-so-successful published author, has been trying to get back with his wife, although the divorce came through two years ago. Therefore, when the ex comes in the door, he begs Skylar to pretend to be his new galpal. She agrees, even though she thinks Gavin is a pain, having recommended a haughty, very long psych book to her. Soon, the ex may indeed be changing her attitude toward Gav while Stuart just wants to hear about Skylar's past. In fact, bolstered by the advice from a self-help book, Skylar decides to summon her cheating boyfriend to the place and call it quits in front of the world! Fun times, are ahead, especially when Stuart urges Skylar to join the staff. After all, she is already charming customers, like the retired professor (Christopher Lloyd) who visits daily. The lovely lady agrees. With this new twist at Stacks, what other entertaining events are ahead for the gang? Lots! This fun show, albeit a bit racy, was once on Fox, for a season or two. For those who missed it, like me, shame, shame. Its quite enjoyable. Anderson's sweet voice and knockout looks are most welcome while Gold and especially Scolaro are a stitch. Lloyd, too, is a treasure and so is the woman who plays the barista. Of course, not many books get sold in each episode but with nice costumes, sets, plots, humor, and great timing, Stacked stacks up well for an evening's pleasure. Make that multiple evenings, dear viewers.
