Trivia

Originally conceived as a vehicle for latina actress Mel Gorham, the original pilot was centered around Gorham as a wacky worker in a Florida souvenir shop who moved to New York and found herself at a diner surrounded by equally wacky characters. Before it aired, the network and producers decided Gorham wasn't the right fit for the series, and the show was retooled as more of an ensemble piece, with Constance Marie in the now-reduced role vacated by Gorham.

I miss this show
26 October 2004 | by LuckyMomof2GirlsSee all my reviews

Hi,

I disagree with the original comments that this show was not very funny. I personally thought it was one of the funniest TV shows I have ever watched. It was one of only a handful of shows where I actually laughed out loud watching TV. There was a waiter on roller skates who was portrayed as a rather dumb character. He was hilarious! I think that if this show had been given a more creative name and had been given a chance, it would have been a hit. I was very disappointed when they cancelled this, and if it ever comes out on DVD, I will not hesitate to buy it.
