Her friends and co-workers, Corky, Jim, Frank and Miles, try to balance between her outbursts of anger and her family, personality or even financial crises. It's a difficult life for Murphy but she's got the guts to live it... Written by Xenophon Tsakanikas <ftpadmin@antigoni.med.auth.gr>

Happy to see it go
29 November 2018 | by gettalongzzSee all my reviews

So glad to see this pathetic reboot cancelled. I knew when I watched the first (and my last) episode that it would be gone soon. I watch television to be entertained not to see political opinions from pantsuit wearing hasbeen Hillary wannabe old cows who need to impose their views on everyone. All I can say is hahahahahahahahahaha🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
