Show Summary

Samantha "Sam" Newly is a corporate executive and hit-and-run victim who awakens after being in a coma for eight days, only to find she has amnesia. With no memories of the past, she must rediscover everything about her life and herself by looking for clues from her past. Sam discovers that she wasn't a very nice person to most people and she is determined to change that. She also discovers that she cheated on her boyfriend Todd (played by Barry Watson) with a married man. Sam even learns that her "accident" was no accident at all, but a failed attempt at someone trying to kill her, but who? Slowly but surely little parts of her start to emerge to the delight of some and to the shock of others. Will she change or will she act like she did before her amnesia? The people that Sam has to rely on aren't all what they appear to be. Sam leans on her parents after she awakens, but has no idea that she hasn't spoken to them in over two years. Sam thinks that Dena is her best friend, but Andrea, her real best friend, lets in be known that Sam and Dena haven't even spoken to each other since the seventh grade. Andrea on the other hand is hiding a lot of Sam's wild past from her, which could be disastrous. And then there is Frank, the door man at Todd's apartment. Up until the accident, Sam had never spoken a word to him, but one days ends up saying hi to him and is shocked to learn how observant he is. Production companies are ABC Studios & Brillstein-Grey Television. The show was originally called Sam I Am, but changed to Samantha Be Good because of copyrights issues with Dr. Seuss's estate and his legendary children's book Green Eggs and Ham. It was later changed to Samantha Who?moreless

  • I loved this show and all of the characters

    I laughed each episode. And cried on the last. Knowing it was a goodbye. I'd like to think Samantha get's a happy ending. Because someone that good and kind deserves one.



    This show was a gem. One that deserved another season. Goodbye, Samantha

    I WAS WORKING 14 HR DAYS WHEN 'SAMANTHA WHO' WAS FIRST AIRED. NOW THAT IT'S ON COMCAST'S XTREMEPIX, I'M REALLY ENJOYING IT! ANY SHOW THAT USES CHRISTINA APPLEGATE AND JEAN SMART EFFECTIVELY IS DEFINATELY WORTH MY TIME!

    Samantha Who is one of the few shows on air right now that provides us with very witty and rare kind of humor. In the beginning, this show's lack of laugh-track made me wonder whether that was a right choice for an obvious comedy sitcom. I quickly thanked the creators for choosing not to use it, a move which pays off to almost every other comedy show – like The Office – where the writing and the jokes fight for themselves, this also makes these shows more funny altogether. This is a very enjoyable show and Christina Applegate's performance is one of the strongest features of it, as well as the rest of the cast which are great – especially Jean Smart who plays Samantha's mother. All in all it's really fun show and worthy keeping it on the air, I'm tuning in to see if it get's renewed for 3rd season!moreless

    Married with Children: The Parent of Today's Family Sitcom

    While its peers in the family sitcom arena offered a limitless supply of loving families, happy homes, and poignant life lessons, Married With Children slapped America in the face with middle-class mediocrity and resentment. And television hasn't been the same since.
