Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The well-written comedy consistently presents underlying feminist themes while still remaining lighthearted. Although it features typical sitcom plotlines, like challenges that come with raising kids, dealing with divorce, and financial issues, it centers on the idea that women are often devalued as they get older in professional and social circles. It also underscores the importance of women to be strong, independent, and supportive of each other.

Those who remember the series will enjoy the show, which features the main character playing (fictitious) cameos in popular series of the time, and Emmy Award-winning performances by Christine Baranski. However, those who are new to the show will find that despite the fact that it originally aired in the mid-'90s, its premise is very relevant today. If you're looking for a fun comedy with a feminist twist, you may find that Cybill is a show worth settling into.
