One of the best shows of the 80's
20 June 2004 | by Tabitha LenoxSee all my reviews

I watched this show from day one and fell in love with Lillian. Scheming, malicious evil women are my one weakness. I always felt they should have chucked the rest of the cast and made it the Lillian and the magic mirror show. I still have all 21 episodes from 1987 that are still in good viewing condition, save one ep. I just watched them not long ago after learning of Paul Winfield's untimely death.

Paul Winfield has some great one liners throughtout the series.

Lillian: "Lets see..what should I wear?" (Begins to disrobe) Mirror: "I dont know but if you're taking your clothes off I'm leaving. (disappears from view

Mirror: "Ok, Lillian. You want to know who's fairer than you? (Pulls out telephone book and opens it) "Now this is just the greater los angeles area."

Lillian: "Im good with forest animals" Mirror: "you barbecue them"

Lillian get sick and Mirror tells her to open wide so he can look Mirror: "Whoa! Its all nasty back there Lillian: "what should I do?" Mirror: Close your mouth! Your'e making me sick!"

Plus so many more. I wish one day these would be released to dvd. Charmings rule!
