Murphy Brown is one of my favorite shows. Mainly because it is so different. It is very original for a sitcom and you never get that feeling of it had been done before but better.
Now there is one drawback to the show. That is that some of the jokes relied on the politics of the time. Therefore some of the jokes are outdated but if you know just a bit about politics of the time then this shouldn't be much of a problem. Now for me due to my age some of the jokes still go over my head. However if you are older then this shouldn't be much of a problem.
One thing about this show is it grows on you. I wasn't wild about it in the begining. However after about 3 episodes I was hooked. Definetly a show you should give a try.
