The Nanny is on HBO Max

I'm on Season 1. It is actually a very funny show. It's sort of like a subversive I Love Lucy. The supporting players really make it, Niles, CC, Sylvia, and Val are great. Even the kid actors aren't annoying.

It is a very old-fashioned sitcom and Fran Drescher is funny despite that voice, but a show like this would get canceled after the very first episode today and be accused of peddling Jewish stereotypes.

The show is pure schlock and very dated (actually, it felt very dated even in the 90s) but the chemistry between Fran Drescher and Charles Shaughnessy made it very watchable.

This show is one of the few 90s sitcoms that aged pretty well in my opinion. Fran is hilarious and the supporting cast was great especially C.C. and Niles. The kids were well cast too and unlike other sitcoms, the children never took over the show with nauseatingly cutesy antics.

I remember discovering the grandmother was Mildred Harper (who was pretty funny on the Dick Van Dyke show as well).

I remember in the later years they had a running bit of wondering why she was still a nanny since the kids were mostly grown up and she did little to no nannying.

CC and Niles were funny together, but they made a mistake having them get together. Not every hate relationship has to have an undercurrent of love-hate desire. The series should probably have ended with them Fran and Maxwell getting married or better yet getting engaged and skipped all of the wedding planning episodes.

It's such comfort entertainment with the "I Love Lucy" retro vibe.

I think a lot of people underestimate how difficult it is to make a show where you just fall in love with the characters and even accept the few misses here and there in order to keep them around.

One thing I think the show missed was another Sheffield as a regular having to deal with Fran's family to get that class and culture shock dynamic going. They just popped up for one episode and immediately gone the next. CC could have done it, but for some reason she never really got too involved with, or exposed to, Fran's family in a way like sharing actual story lines.

I love one of the later ones where Max finds out he has a sister and she inherits all of the money of Max's dad and Fran and her mom visits the sister and her mom, and it's such a fun scene of both moms sizing each other up and going for the hotel menu.

Fran should have had Rosie O'Donnell appear on her show and compete with her over who was the bigger Streisand (and Midler) fan.

by Anonymousreply 8404/09/2021

My favorite moments from the show:

1. After finding out that Brighton has been smoking, Fran laments, "I am the worst nanny in the world." She pauses for a beat and then says, "OK, maybe Rebecca de Mornay, then me."

2. Fran, Sylvia and Yetta slapping each other after an argument.

3. Fran trying to convince Maggie to spend her summer in a convent. "I got two words for you. Sounda Music."

4. During a family quarrel over a will, Fran's uncle says something like, "Our side of the family has done well." Sylvia responds, "What well? My daughter is a maid." Fran, who has been gorging on a sandwich, protests, "Nanny, ma!" with her mouth full.

Maybe they were all corny moments and not particularly witty, but as someone wrote up thread, it's like comfort food. Very old-fashioned feel good comedy and Fran Drescher has great comedy timing.

That's because the producers of The Nanny created Who's the Boss.

They made a second season Who's the Boss backdoor pilot with Donna Dixon and Fran Drescher called Charmed Lives which never got picked up. So Fran had previous experience working with them.

I don't know about Fran being a diva, but Peter and her separated towards the end of the shows run when he announced he was gay. The last year or two was a professional but chilly atmosphere. Thankfully they worked through it and are now good friends.

I think Fran has said the show should have ended with the wedding, and that the last year was a mistake in retrospect. But CBS was threw a lot of money at them to stay on so they did. CBS also did the show dirty in its last season. They pulled it after February sweeps, bringing it back in late May to air the finale. The problem is they didn't air the five episodes prior to the finale until mid summer. So viewers saw Fran coming home with a new baby weeks before they saw her give birth and Niles and CC newlyweds before they even had their wedding. I think the proposal episode might have dumped during that summer as well.

Anyway, it was a mess of an ending to a good show.

Also Peggy had similarly tacky makeup, fashion and hair to indicate she was lower class and aging but still wanted to be seen as sexy. And similar to Fran, her character was always horny yet her husband wasn't interested.

Her clothes were all designer. Hardly Peg Bundy-ish.

I've never watched this show before and I've been enjoying it. I think it holds up well, and they snuck in some surprisingly dirty jokes.

You could make the Nanny today r104. I guess it doesn't exist in flyover country, but in New York, LA, and the Bay the nanny industry is big.

I was watching an old (1983) episode of "Partners In Crime" on Britbox, and who should show up but a very young Mr. Sheffield!

The other memorable part of the episode was the line, "she stood up and a silver teaspoon fell out of her muff."

The Nanny is comfort tv to me. No thinking required and a good way to spend time before falling asleep plus she's gorgeous and he's hot as fuck. I wonder if they ever got together off set because they had great chemistry.

[quote]The kids were well cast too and unlike other sitcoms, the children never took over the show with nauseatingly cutesy antics.

Nor did they add a Cousin Oliver when the youngest grew up like The Cosby Show, Married... with Children, Roseanne, and the Golden Palace.

R149, that's so funny.

R149, I sometimes forget how well The Nanny used guest stars.

Don't know if it's a DL running joke or not, but there's a persistent rumor across previous Nanny threads that Ben Salisbury is hung like a porn star and was nicknamed "Ben with Ten." He left acting and is now of operations at Universal Studios Hollywood. He has a wife and three kids, despite pinging like crazy and despite another rumor that he took Justin Berfield's virginity.

In any case, he looks like hell.

Good for Ben Salisbury. He was one of the few who knew he would never make it as an adult actor and moved on with his life instead of becoming a total crazy embarrassment like so many of them who just don't know when to pack it up and change careers.

YouTube currently has CAPTAIN RON available as a free movie, so I watched it over the weekend. Ben Salisbury is in it as the son of Martin Short and Mary Kay Place. I was thinking that may have been what got him noticed for THE NANNY since the movie and show were only one year apart.

James Marsden's character Eddie appeared twice in the first season of THE NANNY. In his second episode, he and Maggie officially go out on a date, with Fran serving as chaperone.
