Fran Drescher stars as Fran Fine, a street-smart young woman with a face out of Vogue and a voice out of Queens who stumbles onto the opportunity to become nanny to the children of a wealthy widower, Maxwell Sheffield. Soon Fran, with her offbeat nurturing and no-nonsense honesty, touches Maxwell as well as the kids. (via Sony Pictures)
About Ben & Mandy
Mandy Oquendo and Ben Paddon‘s relationship could draw a few comparisons to the center couple of this 90s romcom. Except they’re based in a small Los Angeles apartment, not a big New York mansion. And Ben isn’t a theatre producer but a writer and stand-up comedian (currently working on The Game of Rassilon podcast). And obviously Mandy isn’t nannying any of Ben’s nonexistent children–though they do both take care of a toothless cat in real life and a bunch of virtual pocket monsters on their Twitch streams.
All right, honestly the only similarity is that Ben is British, and Mandy has a penchant for brightly-patterned clothes. After moving in together last year, they started catching reruns of The Nanny on TV, (re-)discovered how enjoyable it was, and found they both had a lot to say about it.
About Out on her Fanny
Join Ben & Mandy as they take a closer look at each episode to discuss the sitcom tropes, iconic fashion, dated celebrity cameos, and would-be Britishisms of this delightful 90s gem.
