Newlyweds Elizabeth and Alvin (Betty White and Del Moore) hardly seem like lovers...they're more like brother and sister. With these painfully low-budget shows, we see glimpses of their house (one episode divided into three "incidents", on one set apiece) and only one or two drops-in per show--these two have very few friends! Betty White is full of verbal shenanigans, cajoling and joshing, and though she's amiable as always, even the in-studio audience leaves some of the corny punchlines alone. This era didn't permit for passion, of course, but there's absolutely no romance in these too-tidy tales of a married twosome. The gimmicks with the announcer ("Hi Elizabeth, what are ya knitting there?") are funny, and White, as noted, is a reassuring presence, but Del Moore is entirely forgettable, as are many of the plots.
