It Should Have Been Left in the Closet
8 March 2006 | by (Bigtown, Montana USA) – See all my reviews

This program should stand as a warning for all time: Success on one medium is no guarantee of success on another. I only managed to sit through one of these programs that someone was trying to use as an early-morning filler 20 years ago. Really awful. Not just because of the absence of Jim and Marion Jordan, but Don Quinn's masterful writing as well. What was clever on radio in the 1940s was tired shtick by the 1960s. Other blunders:Hal Peary - who played Gildersleeve-- is misused as Mayor LaTrivia. One hopes he was just hard up for the money. The lead actors are utterly forgettable. FM&M was NOT a sitcom, but clearly the suits behind this mess thought it was. They pulled the plug in less than four months, a very unusual move in the 60s. If you ever encounter it, it's worth a look-see only if you like to gawk at roadside accidents. T'ain't the way I heerd it! P.S. Go to the Internet Archives Classic TV section if you still want to see a sample of this show and judge for yourself.
