Storyline

After a car accident gave Samantha amnesia, she has to start her life all over, while gradually discovering her past. These personalities clash, as her former self is too wicked to accept, but the past won't just be forgotten by those who knew her: family, house-mate/exes and professional circles. Written by KGF Vissers

"My NAme is SAmantha"? Well,not quite...
23 January 2008 | by KUAlum26See all my reviews

Still,this clever,well-cast and quirky ABC sitcom could be considered at least a marginal,feminine take on the "BAd-person-has-extraordinary-even-show-them-error-of-their-ways" construct,a la "My NAme is Earl".

The Samantha of the title(Christina Applegate,who just seems to get better with more experience)recovers from a blunt-force trauma but suffers from amnesia,which has her retracing her life through her parents(Jean Smart and Kevin Dunn),her friends(Jennifer Esposito and Melissa McCArthy)and her former boyfriend(BArry WAtson),all of whom seem to be somewhat in disbelief that such girl could have this pang of regret and need for redemption. I've only seen a couple of episodes,but what I saw has been so encouraging that I WANT to see more.

Hopefully,ABC will give this more chance to flourish. From the ad campaigns that I've seen,it appears they will. A good compliment to another sitcom with plenty of upside potential,"Notes from the Underbelly",which I hope ABC also gives opportunity to thrive. Got the hint,networks?
