Not quite the same after Greta left.
29 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

Greta was my favorite. While Barbara Eden, as Loco, was very funny and a bit daffy, and Mike, played by Merry Anders, seemed like the one in charge when little disagreements arose, there was something about Greta that really appealed to me. She was very pretty, soft-spoken, and very likable.

This was a show that anyone could watch. Nothing offensive back in those days. If you liked the movie "How to Marry a Millionaire", then you'd like this series.

I was only seven years old when this series premiered, but I never missed it. I was always home in front of the TV, waiting for it to come on. After Lori Nelson left, it just wasn't the same. I really missed her.

I wish somebody would find the old film or find any other way to give this series back to the fans. I'd love to see it again. I can remember a few of the episodes from start to finish, and I can actually visualize them as though I were sitting in front of my TV watching them right now.

Gee, I really miss some of the old series that were on when I was a child!
