Oy! Let me take you back to the early ’90’s for a few minutes. Say hello to Nanny Fine, Mr. Sheffield, Niles, C.C. Babcock, Margaret, Brighton, Grace, Sylvia, Val and Yetta. These were all of the friendly and quirky characters from the television show The Nanny. There was just something about Fran Drescher and the rest of the amazing actors on the show. Once you looked beyond her nasal voice, it was oddly captivating.
Thanks to Nick at Nite, I can once again watch The Nanny each night as I settle into bed. I love just sitting there, laughing (while sometimes knitting) and catching each of the fabulous punch lines. The timing on the jokes, often said by Daniel Davis as Niles the butler, still hold up today. As an adult I appreciate many of the items that likely went right over my head as a high school student. Now I enjoy how The Nanny makes me laugh, and melts the stresses of the day away.
So my question this week:
What television show from the past would you, or do you, love to watch? I suppose you can call it your guilty pleasure. It could be a cartoon (like Muppet Babies), drama (like Little House on the Prarie), or another comedy (like Mork & Mindy, The Nanny, Dinosaurs . . . . or countless others) or something else.
Now I will leave you with the fun theme song from The Nanny:
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the Mr. Linky there if you are participating.
