One of the highlights of the season was when Samantha dated an environmentalist. The relationship spanned several episodes and featured Samantha attempting to live a “green” lifestyle. In the process she subjects Todd to low-flow showerheads, and hilariously “calls in sick” when she tires of being environmental and opts for shopping instead of cleaning a park. The story arc of the season is Samantha’s relationship with Todd. Will she choose him or will she go back with her former boyfriend (and boss) Winston Funk (Billy Zane)?
An aspect of the show I could have done without is Andrea’s relationship with Tony Dane the basketball player. While there were a few funny moments, like when Samantha tries to convince Andrea Dane is gay, the storyline ended up being a bit over the top. The show works best when it deals with Samantha and her quest to find herself.
It’s a shame Samantha Who? got canceled. The writing was clever, the acting and characters were good, and the show was funny. The show is well worth picking up on DVD. This set includes three unaired episodes, bloopers, deleted scenes, and a set tour with Christina Applegate.
