The main hunk of the story focusses on a bunch of tenents living in several flats in a place called, 28 Barbary Lane. Everyone who crosses the paths of these tenents are somehow mysteriously linked to one another, leaving little threads or clues to the mysteries surrounding them. It's these threads that once woven together create this rich tapestry that is 'More Tales...'
Once again, we witness the wonderful Olympia Dukakis play the equally wonderful and intriguing landlady, Mrs Anna Madrigal.
Lauraa Linney also resumes her role as the warm and innocent, Mary Ann Singleton, continuing her search for love.
This series also sees the arrival of several of the main characters being recast. Such favourites as, Mona Ramsey had been recast from Cloe Webb to the slightly more youthful, Nina Siemaszko. At first this is somewhat disappointing and baffling, to say the least, but as the series progresses it becomes less of an issue.
The character of Michael 'Mouse' Tolliver on the other hand is a different story. Paul Hopkins replaces Marcus D'Amico in this role, and subsequently overplays it, which can at times be irritating.
This series also saw the arrival of the hilariously foul-mouthed Mother Mucca, an elderly lady who runs a brothel in the desert. She will have you in fits of laughter, especially in eppisode one, with her moral ramblings about Mona's flirtation with Angel Dust (PCP).Read more ›
The video picks up where "Tales of the City" left off, and takes us through an emotional rollercoaster ride that leaves us feeling as if we left our heart back up at the top of Lombard Sreet. But of course, it is back at 28 Barbary Lane.
Mona goes in search of her roots, Michael continues his search for true love, Anna picks up the pieces after Edgar, Mary Anne learns big-city savvy (and - has she found someone?). Dee Dee takes her life more and more into her own hands, much to Beauchamp's chagrin.
Watch for another cameo appearance by the storyteller himself. The end leaves us breathlessly waiting for ... "Further Tales of the City" on video! Please, stop torturing us! Release it SOON!
