The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd

Show Summary

Molly Dodd is a 30-something, creative woman who makes interesting career choices and struggles with complex relationships with men and with her family. Molly's best friend, Nina Shapiro, also makes appearances here and there. Each episode begins with someone close to Molly commenting on some facet of her personality or her life. Elements of magical realism run throughout the series, for instance, when Molly communicates with the ghost of a relative (to tell who would be a spoiler). Molly has trouble saying "no" to people, like her mysterious cousin Mike from Baltimore who moves in with her and stays longer than he's welcome. Molly eventually seeks therapy but is turned away by her therapist when she falls in love with Molly. Some of the most notable men in Molly's life are her father; her ex-husband Fred, a sax player who keeps returning to toy with her emotions; Davey, the elevator man in her apartment building; Moss Goodman, the owner of a bookstore, who is seriously socially handicapped but charming as all get out (on right in the photo); and Nate Hawthorne, a literate cop with severe allergies (on left in the photo). The show's creator, Jay Tarses, makes occasional appearances as Molly's garbage man, Nick. After the second season, the show moved from NBC to Lifetime.

    I Looo-oove Days and Nights of Molly Dodd !! This series reminds me of the best 1987 and on years of my life watching 'Molly Dodd' with my little girls and them saying 'she's so dumb'. But I thought Blair Brown was my Satin Doll and my peek into the 30's single girl struggling thru life like Mary Tyler Moore's character or 'That Girl' !! Long live Mary Dodd.

    I would never take credit for this wonderful show.. I looked it up today because of mostly the unforgettable song she sand in an episode "It could happen to you" a great jazz number.. How classy Very happy to find this page I am computor illerate but things are improving... I am part of Hollywd folk lore of the Woman in Florida thanks to my Dad who I love but is a hasbeen he kicked me to the curb and his friend got the other 68 shows that are gigantic hits... Dad is a hasbeen of the music producer do op days and sees the bad in everyone even his friend He can't understand how much I gave to the script hawker that others take for granted I don't care about WRITING a book With the endorsements of those few who thanked me by guilt of the phoney script agent.. he told them I hope they repeat the credt they told media before the Woman in Flordia Born in NYC did it for love dad always took care of Mom deal done!moreless
