    Season five of The Nanny begins with a wrap-up of the cliffhanger established at the end of season four, with Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) firmly and without hesitation declaring his love for Fran Fine (Fran Drescher), the down-to-earth nanny for Maxwell's three children. Unlike the "false start" of the previous season, in which Maxwell took back his words of love, this season he fully intends to march Fran down the aisle -- which indeed happens in the season's two-part finale, with a genuine rabbi presiding over a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. Even allow for this golden moment, season five ends on yet another cliffhanger. It seems that Fran is so enchanted by the prospect of a honeymoon cruise with Maxwell that she falls overboard -- whereupon her dutiful husband dives into the briny deep after her! Guest stars appearing this season include Roseanne as Fran's cousin Sheila in "The Morning After"; Lainie Kazan, repeating her off-and-on role as our heroine's Auntie Frieda in "The Ex-Niles"; Ray Charles, as the uncle (!) of TV personality Bryant Gumbel in "Fair Weather Fran"; Harry Hamlin as a college philosophy teacher idolized by Maxwell's daughter Maggie (Nicholle Tom) in "Educating Fran"; Scott Baio as a fledgling doctor in "Rash to Judgment"; Ray Romano in his Everybody Loves Raymond guise as Ray Barone in "The Reunion Show"; and even Nanny regular Charles Shaughnessy, appearing in the dual role of Maxwell Sheffield and a Middle Eastern sultan in "Not Without My Nanny." And we haven't even mentioned those celebrities who appear as themselves during season five, notably Elton John, Chevy Chase, Michael Bolton, columnist Cindy Adams and "The Donald's" then-inamorata, Marla Maples. ~ Hal Erickson
