Better than Veronica's closet!
6 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Kirstie Alley plays a self absorbed Broadway actress named Madison Banks. Her son, Arlo, who she gave up decades ago comes to New York City and reunites with her. It sounds cliché but I'm actually enjoying it. Kirstie makes Maddie likable. Eric Petersen is perfectly cast as Arlo Barth, an awkward adult. The supporting cast is first rate with Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards. The Christmas episode was a hoot with Cloris Leachman as her mother. Arlo had a great relationship with his adoptive mother who was completely selfless and a second mother figure to his friends. Maddie tries to overcompensate for giving him up. Eric Peterson who plays Arlo does hold his own against his veteran costars. The John Travolta episode was ridiculous but all in good fun.
