Molloy ( Mayim Bialik) was another of tv's endless stream of precocious, wise-beyond-their-years children. She and her widowed Dad, Paul ( Kevin Scannell), lived in an exclusive section of Los Angeles, with Paul's new wife Lynn ( Pamela Brull), and Lynn's 2 children-Courtney ( Jennifer Aniston), an obnoxious, spoiled, status-concious teenager, and Jason ( Luke Edwards), a reasonably well-adjusted preteen. Lynn was a successful interior decorator, which may or may not have contributed to her daughters-and her own-snobbishness. Although Molloy tolerated her stepmother and almost liked Jason, she and Courtney couldn't stand each other.
Paul, meanwhile, was the program director for tv station KQET, which led to a budding career for Molloy as well-as a regular cast member on Wonderland, a local children's show. Simon, Sara, and Louis ( I.M. Hobson, Ashley Maw, Bumper Robinson), were the other actors on Wonderland.
A Review From The New York Times
Series In The Summer
By JOHN J. O'CONNOR
Published: July 25, 1990
In ''Molloy,'' Mayin Bialik is Molloy Martin, a precocious youngster who, after the death of her mother in New York, has moved in with her father and his new family in Beverly Hills. In no time at all, it seems, she has snagged a job appearing on a children's program at the local public television station. A New Yorker to the bone, Molloy is commited to innumerable social and environmental causes. Her new family is pure California, preoccupied with bikini waxes, body rubs and scalp massages. ''Molloy'' has the courage of its stereotypes.
Ms. Bialik, who appeared in the Bette Midler movie ''Beaches,'' looks a bit like Barbra Streisand auditioning for the Margaret Hamilton role in ''The Wizard of Oz.'' There's no denying she's energetic. That's helpful, because ''Molloy'' and its cliches will need all the energy it can get. Very nearly walking off with the show is Molloy's older step-sister, Courtney, played to a bubble-head fare-thee-well by Jennifer Aniston.
Did Molloy mention the greenhouse effect? ''Get real,'' says Courtney, ''I don't talk to gardeners.'' And what really makes people happy? ''New shoes usually do a lot,'' she confides. On one level, ''Molloy'' asks what is important, and what is frivolous? This sitcom is all too eager to endorse the frivolous.
