The writing in the show is only average... But Fran Drescher alone makes The Nanny worth a look for those who like their comedy with a dose of chutzpah.
Fran Fine is a character we still don't get to see enough of, even today in the Age of Golden Televisions: a likeable but flawed lady-protagonist.
Shrewdly crude, The Nanny sure ain't no Friends rip-off, and that's something of a blessing.
But instead of being a mere reheating of the old format, The Nanny is fresh and markedly sassy, thanks to a spirited and altogether winning performance by Fran Drescher in the title role.
Fran Fine's appeal overshadows all in a series that's a nice little nosh of a comedy if not exactly a banquet of laughs.
The show was, regardless of how over-the-top it may have seemed (the nasal laugh that ended all nasal laughs, those hilarious under-the-breath insults from Niles), undeniably relatable.
Out of all the famous sitcoms from the '90s, The Nanny might just be the most underrated.
Drescher takes formula sitcom and turns it into something special. She's a hoot.
The writing is clever, and the lines and characters are actually funny - an unusual combination in many sitcoms these days.
