THE NANNY is an American situation comedy that ran from 1993 to 1999. Conceived by actress Fran Drescher and her then husband Peter Marc Jacobson, the series follows Fran Fine, a big-mouthed but very good natured Jewish woman from Queens, New York, who becomes the nanny of the 3 children of British Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield. The other main character are the sarcastic butler Niles and Maxwell's production partner C.C. Babcock. Most of the storylines of the series revolve around Fran and Maxwell's attraction to each other and C.C.'s efforts to separate them, as well as the children's upbringing and the clash between Fran's working class background and the Sheffield's upper-class culture. Season two is my favourite of them all, as it features some of the best storylines of the series. In this season, Fran is already settled at the house, and the children are already very attached to her. This means that the storylines are no longer so concerned with the bonding between the family and their new Nanny, but are free to explore Fran's relationship with Maxwell as well as C.C.'s an Niles's antagonism. Added to these core themes, there are a lot a hilarious storylines involving Fran's whacky relatives and her dim-witted friend Val Toriello. This second season is also notable for the special guest stars that appear in various episodes, such as Bob Barker, J.D. Daniels, Shari Lewis, Billy Ray Cyrus and Steve and Eydie.
