As a child in the 1980's, many of my growing up years were spent watching Nell and the Kanisky family. She was a true diva in the sense, she was a funny actress, she could sing, she could act... I was very upset when Nell passed away nearly three years ago.
While there is much sadness knowing that Nell, Dolph Sweet and Howard Morton are now no longer with us (Sweet passed away in between the fourth and fifth seasons), it is great to have this classic sitcom preserved to watch once more.
Please buy this set on February 14th, the better it sells, the more likely we are at getting the rest of the seasons as well.
I just hope Universal does'nt take too long for future releases of this funny sitcom, because I know I'm going to watch season one pretty quickly, considering I have not seen this show since skip was a pup!!! Nell Carter I know you are keeping them laughing in heaven!!!
Love the fact that she always says what she thinks. Doesn't sugar coat things. Love the wisecracks. Awesome. Can't wait until season 2.
Some scenes are tear jerkers, but most of the scenes are hilarious and so real you can relate to your own life problems. Can't go wrong with Nell Carter.
Gimme a Break Rocks! Purchase it while you can. You won't be disappointed.
If you love people telling it like it is and don't mind smart cracks or wise cracks/slams then you will enjoy this series and it's humor. This is for you.
But if your the type that likes everything sugar coated/ no humor/slams/ or wise cracks, then this series isn't for you.
Great series. Love the humor and the reality. Thanks for the laughs :-}
Really enjoyed this tv series and we are so happy it made it to DVD.
Great picture! Loved the bonus material. when Nell got ripped of by the Glenlawn Telephone company. Totally true.
