Memorable series, very different from the movie and play
21 April 2002 | by (Brooklyn, New York) – See all my reviews

"Bus Stop" was a memorable series, though very different from the movie and play, which were more farcical. The series was in black-and-white, and was usually very dramatic. Each week, there would be a mini-drama as people came in and out of the bus stop. The Marilyn Maxwell character, Grace, usually provided sympathy and advice; there was always a bantering relationship between Grace and the sheriff, the bus driver, and the waitress, which was behind the main drama. For some reason, i remember an episode which had Madelyn Rhue and Coleen Gray, which had to do with a woman trying to escape an abusive relationship who becomes friends with another woman on the bus. But "Bus Stop" was a good series; i was surprised to discover that Robert Altman had been involved with the series.
