The Mommies began as the most white-bread of TV comedies, two cheerful suburban moms cracking girl jokes about periods, pregnancies, dumb husbands, and kids. The two were almost interchangeable. Marilyn was the brunette, married to accountant Jack and mom to Dense teenager Adam & perky seven-year-old Kasey. Caryl was the blond, who was pregnant, married to easygoing computer tech Paul, and mom to little Blake and Danny. Tiffany was Adam's girlfriend.
Although "The Mommies" never was taken off the air,it was as if NBC was never completely happy with the make up of the series. They continued to tinker with it, adding bits of spice as time went along. Barb joined the cast after a few months as a too-perfect neighbor, making the Mommie's a little less so by comparison (she was married to Ken-as in "Barbie & Ken"). The role of Paul was recast with an actor with more of an edge, and sarcastic, stay-at-home dad Tom moved into the neighborhood. The, in January 1995, Marilyn and Jack got divorced, leaving one mommy free to play the dating game. At the same time the name of the show was shortened to "Mommies"
It made it through the first season, started the second season and seamed to be doing quite well. It wasn't another "Friends" but it was holding it's own. Then for no apparent reason, "Bang" it was gone ! NBC Never said why, just it was no longer in their line-up.
The series was based (at least at first) on the standup comedy act of the two stars. Marilyn Kentz & Caryl Kristensen.
Only a total of 38 - 30 Minute episodes aired.
This 8 DVD Set includes 34 of those episodes.
