When a sitcom's claim to fame is...the first sitcom to be filmed outside in front of a live [studio] audience...with added canned laughter...it ain't no surprise it was binned.
Abby is bisexual and runs an illegal bar in her backyard [with an iron fist]...frequented by 'oddballs' [read that as cardboard stereotypes], the problem is, they ain't that odd. The other problem is...Abby. Mostly grumpy, devoid of humour and probably more suited to running a funeral parlour than a bar.
The production team, obviously teetotallers, must be drowning their sorrows. Cheers...it ain't.
As the oddball cast of characters that hangs out at Abby's will tell you, everyone needs a bar to call home. Theirs just happens to be an unlicensed watering hole in Abby's backyard, where the drinks are cheap and the laughs abound. But what really makes this place so special is Abby. She's a tough cookie with no time for nonsense. She doesn't allow cell phones, earning a seat at the bar takes time, and losing a challenge means drinking a limey, sugary, non-beer cocktail -- and her regulars wouldn't have it any other way.
