I used to enjoy the series.
30 March 2000 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Now looking at IMDb cast and crew list for Bus Stop the series was directed Robert Altman (Prêt-à-Porter), whom I thought only did independent movies. You never know about most people's background until you search all the way back. I used to enjoy the series, it had a nice theme song, and the fact that they had new people with new problems was fascinating to me. I was then very young and all those little details such as who is coming to town next was a big Wow. Now days I realize that there were many series done afterwards which were similar as far as people coming and going such as: The Love Boat, and Hotel. I believe I watched the series in black and white and dubbed. The owner of the little restaurant was a very pretty lady.
