Very good show, 30 January 2007
Author: jashobeam5 from NC, USA

This is a classic sitcom. The characters are limited in number, and the plot is always simple, but the acting and writing are very good. Most of the episodes revolve around Elizabeth's sense of humor. Her husband is the straight man usually. It is worth watching, unlike many shows today. Some of the characters are never seen including:

* the nosy next door neighbor who watches Elizabeth and Alvin from over the fence.

* Elizabeth's obese mother.

Main characters: Elizabeth: Housewife who is almost always in a good mood. Alvin: Husband who puts up with his wife's constant practical jokes.

Some of the best skits:

Elizabeth buys a lobster, but doesn't have the heart to kill it. Together they release it back into the wild.

Elizabeth schemes to get a new vacuum. She convinces Alvin that the door to door salesman is afraid they are going to kill him, so he buys a vacuum.

Elizabeth agrees to babysit a neighborhood boy, sight unseen. When he arrives he is a college student with a serious crush on Elizabeth.

An old schoolmate drops by making Alvin jealous.

Alvin is out practicing his golf swing in his front yard. He accidentally hits it through a neighbor's car windshield.

Elizabeth makes the local gopher into her pet.

Elizabeth gives Alvin a women's magazine test only to find he fails it. She is worried she is married to a dunce. Turns out Alvin has a trick up his sleeve.
