[quote=88survivor]Que Pasa, USA was a great show. It starred a very young pre-Scarface Steven Bauer. I was about two immigrants from Cuba, Pepe and Juana(the parents). The son and daughter wanted to speak English, but the family wanted to keep in the tradition Spanish language. So it is a mixture of Spanglish itself, pretty interesting. Great episodes, my favorite was the episode where I think the son has a dream that the family did learn the English language.

I actually liked Que Pasa USA. It was bi-lingual, but with enough English that you could tell what was going on. I thought Steven Bauer, then known as Rocky Echevarria, was good in his role. The grandparents were very funny, as the ones the least receptive to the American Culture the others were trying to embrace.

It was cancelled because Whoopi was making fun of Bush at a time when that wasn't popular to do.

any spin off that tries to cash in on a parents show shining 2nd bananna - This isn't a spin off but when they started showcasing more of Jack and Karen on Will and Grace , that's when it died.

Fraiser worked because he wasn't the second . I don't see a show about Norm and Cliff working. there are exemptions however.

Charecters like that are great and we howl seeing them, but like anything that good too much is overkill. it's like cheesecake - YUMMY but if you eat the whole thing your going to get sick.

I love Joan Cusack , but the sitcom What About Joan didn't do her justice. She's great in films as the second , zinger faces and quips. enough to leave you wanting more , but lost in 30 minutes. Although her second , originally from Family Matters , the girl who played Laura , was a scene stealer .

I read that the reason that show went off was because Bette Middler didn't want to do it anymore-she found that it was harder than she thought it would be.

"Funny Whoopi Goldberg" is a total contradiction in itself.

I know what you mean. As a matter of fact very few of the Hollywood crowd today seem like nice people. The moment they get on the stage or wherever all it is is a political tirade. I just want to be entertained. I dont care about their politics one way or the other.

Don't forget Geena Davis' own show. That was not going to last at all.

Sound familiar? It was a complete rip off of the Bewitched pilot. The scene where she tells him the truth is repeated verbatim from where Samantha tells Darrin the truth in the original. I can't believe Bill Asher was involved in this, and Elizabeth Montgomery (very rightly so) refused to have anything to do with it. All I can say is,

Liberty Williams' other claim to "fame" was she appeared in an episode of Mary Tyler Moore as Rhoda's younger sister Debby Morgenstern. Apparently she ran off with Chuck Cunningham and Tina Pinciotti, ending up in the void of disappearing characters.

I remember reading or hearing somewhere; back when the show "Rhoda" started, they decided to do away with that sister and replace her with the one she had on "Rhoda"-I think her name was....Brenda? something like that.

By my count Rhoda and two sisters - Brenda and Debby - and a brother named Arnold, whom we never saw. Their mother's name was Ida. Notice how all but one of the Morgenstern women were named something endind in the syllable "da," although Mrs. Morgenstern wanted to named Rhoda "Marcia" (but her husband put his foot down)?

As long as we're talking about names, "Morgenstern" means "morning star" in German.
