This isn't the best sit-com, and it certainly doesn't have the best acting, but it is hilarious. The show is overflowing with sarcasm and irreverence. Fran Drescher is great as a nanny who doesn't respect boundaries - both personal and comedic. I love how Niles personifies the sarcastic butler. The kids are adorable, especially Grace, who talks back with an attitude. Every once in a while when I watch "The Nanny" I find myself bursting with laughter.
Unfortunately, the show didn't get much attention when it was on. Some of its cultural references are outdated (frequent references to the Clintons and Dolly Parton). However, if you didn't catch it while it was being aired, these DVDs are definitely worth checking out.
