Sitcoms were everything in the 90s. There were so many different options to choose from, that sometimes, a lot of the best shows were forgotten. Suddenly Susan was one of those great shows.
When it started in 1996, it became one of the top rated shows. But after getting moved around in the schedule, it quickly fell out of the top five and moved down in the ratings. Even though the show wasn't as popular, it remained a treat to watch, except one episode that proved to be incredibly emotional.
The stars of the show were some pretty notable actors. Susan was played by none other than Brooke Shields, and her boss, Jack, was played by Judd Nelson. Kathy Griffin starred as Vicki the restaurant critic, and then there was also Luis the photographer played by Nestor Carbonell. Andréa Bendewald was a reporter named Maddy and Barbara Barrie was the emotional support of the show as Susan's Nana, but the character who is remembered most of all was Todd.
Todd Stities was the rock music reporter played by David Strickland. He was goofy, energetic, hilarious and people loved watching his outrageous moments on the show.
However, the truth of the matter was that Strickland himself was going through a lot, and while he tried to hide it, reality caught up with him.
