| Good, fresh, funny show
The show is about Fran who is married to Peter. The couple were married for 18 years when suddenly one night after making love, he turns to Fran and says "I think I'm gay." So the pair remain in the same house and began to sort it all out. Once Fran begins to tell her parents, and friends, they all have the same reaction..You couldn't tell? The show jumps ahead six months now, and the two still live together. The challenge is getting on with their lives. Fran begins to date and meets Elliot. The 2 seem to be doing well until one night a drunken Peter slips into bed with Elliot and Fran. This is enough for Elliot and he breaks up with Fran. Frans best friend, Judy, is also great friends with Peter. The 2 often hang out at a gay club. Bottom line, the 2 live together and carry on much like an old married couple still, besides sleeping in different beds. Thats the funny part about the show. They both have a lot of love for each other still. Peter looks out for Fran and Fran does the same. The show stars Fran Drescher, Tichina Arnold, and John Michael Higgins with supporting actors Rita Moreno and Robert Walden as Frans 70+ year old parents with whom she and Peter have a great relationship with. The show is funny, down to earth and simple. It mirror Frans real life ordeal with her long-time husband coming out in recent years. I hope you enjoyed my review and enjoy the show!
