Designing Women Thursday: New mom Charlene struggles to rejoin the working world

Sugarbaker LadiesI’ve always admired the way Jean Smart managed to work through her pregnancy during season four of Designing Women.
By season five, she was dealing with being a new mom both off-screen and on/
In this episode, her character of Charlene has just returned to work at the design firm and her first day is an utter nightmare.
The writing is superb and the delivery absolutely brilliant as she describes her string of calamities to Julia (the late, great Dixie Carter, Mary Jo (Annie Potts) and Suzanne (Delta Burke) who makes matters worse when she keeps exclaiming “Oh my Lord!” after Charlene tells her tale of humiliation.

2 Remarks

  1. Will we get to see her sister Carlene one of these Thursdays? She was a far better side kick IMO! Those Anthony and Carlene scenes were hillarious!

  2. Not sure if I’ll do much of seasons 6 and 7 Mike. They really are not the same. But if you have a specific suggestion, I’ll consider it for sure!
