The Nanny has to be one of the funniest sitcoms I've seen over the years. However, despite the widely positive reviews given by other reviewers, I believe it to be inappropriate for children and teens. While there's no violent or sexually blatant material (the innuendos will fly over most kids' heads), I will never allow my children to watch shows that depict this desperate single woman stereotype. Fran (along with her mother) is overly age-conscious and seems less concerned about who'll she'll marry as when she'll marry. She constantly tries to manipulate Maxwell to gain his affections, and continues to wait for him for years, even after he takes back his 'I love you'. In fact, the character reminds me a lot of Charlotte from 'Sex and the City'. It's shows like this that reinforce to impressionable young women that they have to be partnered/married to feel good about themselves, and that they should remain in relationships in which they are not being appreciated rather than risk being single.
