    Welcome to the Ladies Man guide at TV.com. "As a husband/father/son/ex-husband/son-in-law, Jimmy Stiles enjoys few comforts of home — such as an empty bathroom — as he shares his life with a house full of women. "Prone to making tactless conversation, Jimmy unintentionally insults his wife, Donna, on a regular basis. Though he desperately needs someone to defend him, he is not going to find it in this house. Donna, however, can always rely on support from Jimmy's ever-present mom, Mitzi, who can recount numerous embarrassing escapades from Jimmy's childhood, and from her own mother, Peaches, who continually points out Jimmy's inadequacies. But Jimmy keeps trying. "As a high-end custom furniture maker, Jimmy is trying to raise Wendy, his smart, yet manipulative, 10-year-old daughter he has with Donna, and his darkness-obsessed teen daughter Bonnie, whom he had with his first wife, a tart-tongued cocktail waitress, Claire. Constantly trying to prove to all these women that he does indeed love them — despite his penchant for stupid, hormonally-inspired remarks — things only become more complicated when Bonnie says she wants to live with him and Donna. Jimmy finally gets a break with the birth of his newest baby — it's a boy! Jimmy's joy over having an ally in the house is euphoric... even if father and son are still physically outnumbered — and more importantly, psychologically outwitted."moreless

    "Swoosie Kurtz, David Ogden Stiers, Paget Brewster, Brian Doyle Murray, Brian Van Holt, Judy Greer, and John Livingston star in this ensemble comedy about romance in a swanky New York City apartment tower. The building's earnest young handyman, who lives in the basement, loves the shy heiress who lives in the penthouse. Separating this couple, more than just 20 stories of plush co-ops, is a slew of oddball relatives and millions of dollars in social prestige." "Eamon Roach (Van Holt) is the building's cellar-dwelling superintendent, who rooms with his dad, Finn (Murray), the doorman. Allison Conklin (Brewster), his heartthrob, is a kindergarten teacher who resides high above with her father, the belligerent billionaire Nicholas Conklin (Stiers), and her champagne-swilling mom, Effie (Kurtz). Allison's hilarious family includes her empty-headed sister, Puff (Greer), and her sarcastic younger brother, Nicky (Livingston)." (CBS press release) This low-key spin on Upstairs, Downstairs managed to make the air, despite CBS CEO Les Moonves' intense dislike for the pilot, but he went out of his way to make sure no one saw it. Promotion was minimal (and bad), lead-in was inappropriate, time slot was ill-conceived, and premiere was two weeks into the season. As such, it aired three times before it was put on "hiatus" and strung along for months in limbo. Both the network and the studio were insistent on shooting all 13 episodes, so for that, we have a nice, short miniseries. Watch the pilot first, "Howard's End" last, and the other episodes in between in production order, and see one couple's relationship come full circle. "Hip, hip, love, love Hooray for love Who was ever too blase for love Make this a night for love If we have to fight, let's fight for love Some sigh and cry for love Ah, but in New York, they die for love Some say we pay for love But today hooray for love" Theme song (episodes 2-13) "Hooray for Love" written by Harold Arlen (music) and Leo Robin (lyrics) performed by Bobby Short Love & Money is produced by Staley/Long Productions, in association with CBS Productions / Paramount Network Television Broadcast History ----------------- Oct 1999, Fri 8:30-9:00 Jul 2000, Tue 8:30-9:00 First telecast: October 8, 1999 Last telecast: July 18, 2000 Show type: Multi-Camera Sitcom Number of episodes: 13 Media: 35mm filmmoreless

    Grapevine (1992)

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1992)
    Grapevine was a stroke of genius. This show centred around romance from the position of both the parties involved in the relationship and their friends (truly a unique experience). Typically, it would be fun and upbeat, set as a series of edited interviews with all the parties linked to any specific event. Each week the show would centre on one couple, a romantic event that occurred in their life and what happened. The couples ranged from singles to married and all the characters were likeable, in one way or another. As an example of the shows design, one person would speculate on one part of an event which occurred regarding a friend (for about 10 -20 seconds), with a second giving their version of the same event (10seconds) and a third (perhaps the party involved in the event) saying what really happened (3-5seconds) and then sometimes a fourth saying why they believe the third party is delusional (suggesting another reality, not earlier mentioned) and the show would move on. Many events painted the overall picture which only became clear as the episode progressed. This gave way to lightening fast and very entertaining television, demonstrating not only how people genuinely reason when confronted with a whole range of social issues but also, more entertainingly, how things can be interpreted (and misinterpreted) by bystanders and associates, leading to a whole barrel of laughs. Interestingly enough, because of the lighting, sets and attitudes of the characters interviewed, even traditionally bad news wasn't depressing and the overall ambience of the show was constructive, positive with the overbearing idea that "life goes on, so don't mope over spilt milk" - something seriously lacking from the paranoid and over anxious TV, so common today, in which there are no real winners (even the winners don't have any real happiness today). In Grapevine everyone won somewhere. Sadly CBS cut the show after only a handful of episodes were made. I cannot think why. I can only presume the viewing public of the day had no vision or insight. I guess in a world where people are becoming increasingly emotionally (and otherwise) unintelligent, I can only presume the general viewing populace of the day either couldn't relate to what they saw or never saw it. However, if you are up-tempo, intelligent and witty - you'll love this. Only problem is - where can you find this? If you have this on video please post it on line (due to the absolute absence of any credible representation on Youtube, I would imagine it could be posted for educational purposes to inform audiences that the show actually existed). If you know where this can be found on line, please post the links (I'm sure I'm not the only one missing it). CBS will never release this on DVD if there is no perceived demand for it and there will be no recognisable demand for it, if people don't know about it. Grapevine (unlike most popular television) is one show that needs to be brought back from the vaults of time. moreless

    Where do you go when you've got a hankering for some good old-fashioned insect Mexican food? Why, Carmen's Cocina, of course, where you can find the finest food and drinks on the Tex-Mex border. Set in a bustling insect border town of the same name, Santo Bugito was the brainchild of animation mavens Klasky-Csupo, creators of Rugrats and Stressed Eric among others. With its quirky illustrations and funny double entendres, the series showed the insect inhabitants of Santo Bugito solving daily problems common to all beetles, crickets and roaches. At the center of Santo Bugito were Carmen De La Antchez and her husband Paco, two savvy ants running a thriving Mexican restaurant for bugs. Inside Carmen's Cocina, Carmen and Paco served up yummy platters of caterpillar fries, spider sandwiches and insect burritos. Other memorable characters included the two fly buddies Clem and Burt, lawyer Emma Squito, caterpillar urban artist Eaton Woode, a brilliant Praying Mantis named Professor, flamenco spider Lolita Larachnid, the Wolf Spider family, Donald the Dragonfly, Ralph the Ladybug, the Roachmuller family and Lencho the Flea. Together, the bugs helped each out of many insect-related predicaments and made us laugh along the way. Although it only lasted one season on CBS' Saturday morning schedule, Santo Bugito gave us 64 million reasons (most of them six-legged) to watch where we were stepping.moreless
