The Nanny (US)

The Nanny (US)


Fran (Fran Drescher), fresh out of her job as a bridal consultant in her boyfriend’s shop, first appeared on the doorstep of Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield peddling cosmetics, and quickly stumbled upon the opportunity to become the nanny for his three children. But soon Fran, with her offbeat nurturing and no-nonsense honesty, touched Maxwell as well as the kids.

And, after five years of blue collar meets blue blood, as Fran gave Maxwell and his children a healthy dose of “Queen’s logic,” she won her way into the heart of prim and proper Maxwell and he finally made the flashy girl from Flushing his bride.

Now that Fran is the lady of the manor, her influence over the three children, though not always what their father expects, continues to flourish. Together she and Maxwell, as husband and wife, will nurture Maggie, who has blossomed from a shy, awkward teenager into a confident young woman; Brighton, a teenager who is discovering girls and just a little obsessed with his trust fund; and Grace who no longer needs her therapist for guidance now that she has Fran.

Proudly running the Sheffield household is the butler, Niles, who watches all events with a bemused eye and levels problems with his quick wit. Niles quickly saw that Fran was the best thing to walk through the mansion door and was even more excited about her wedding day than the bride-to-be. Maxwell’s business partner, C.C. Babcock, who for years had her eye on the eligible Maxwell, has, in her moments of inconsolable jealousy, turned her affections on Niles, not unsuccessfully, either.

Along with marrying Fran, Maxwell must contend with Fran’s ravenous mother Sylvia, who has given herself free access to the Sheffield household and has guided, and misguided, her daughter over many a piece of coffee cake at the Sheffield’s kitchen table. Val, Fran’s best friend, gives advice which makes Fran’s logic seem like the Theory of Relativity. And Yetta, Fran’s grandmother, offers up her own anecdotes which often leaves others speechless.

truly wonderful sitcomRating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes

I used to watch this hit TV series during the 90s and everything was history. “The Nanny” is a sitcom that would be best classified as crazy and funny at the same time! This show is so noisy lol and Fran’s nasal voice can be irritable but it is also a key factor that made this show funnier. It’s really hysterical and can be annoying sometimes (because of loudness haha) but all in all it’s still one of the best sitcom from the 90s. For those who haven’t watched all the episodes yet, you can also grab a copy at http://www.yourdvdcorner.com and I assure you that viewing this series once more it is really worth the time. A truly wonderful show. Read more
