Lame syndicated sitcom (though hardly as hideous as Small Wonder) that aired from 1986 to 1988. Sandy Beatty (Diana Canova) was a single mom in her thirties who gets a job at an allegedly hip independent record label, Throb. A typical fish out of water scenario. The label was run by Zachary Armstrong (Jonathan Prince), who I remember as a what-if-Michael J. Fox-dressed-like-Miami Vice-type. The only memorable thing about this sitcom is that it had a character named Blue, my first sighting of Jane Leeves, Daphne Moon on Frasier.

Throb (?), v. i. [imp. & p. p. Throbbed (?); p. pr. & vb. n. Throbbing.] [OE. robben; of uncertain origin; cf. Russ. trepete a trembling, and E. trepidation.]

To beat, or pulsate, with more than usual force or rapidity; to beat in consequence of agitation; to palpitate; -- said of the heart, pulse, etc.

My heart Throbs to know one thing. Shak.

Here may his head lie on my throbbing breast. Shak.


© Webster 1913.

Throb, n.

A beat, or strong pulsation, as of the heart and arteries; a violent beating; a papitation:

The IMPATIENT throbs and longings of a soul That pants and reaches after distant good. Addison.
