Its a Mans World
17 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 13 when this show disappeared almost as quickly as it arrived. I was crushed when it was canceled.

As with someone who wrote earlier, it was the first time I ever wrote a letter to a network protesting the cancellation of a series. Never got a reply. I recall it as my first sense of outrage against "the system," and a sense of frustration that my voice could not make a difference. I spent my boyhood in Southern Ohio on the banks of the Ohio River where this series was situated and I really related to the characters and the story line. "Its a Man's World" was certainly way ahead of its time, and came nearly at the precise moment former FCC chairman Netwon Minow was proclaiming network television "A vast wasteland." I also remember an article in TV Guide about the cast doing something totally unprecedented. Upon learning the show was being canceled, Bessell and the others visited potential new sponsors in hopes of saving the show. This cast really believed in that show but they lost. And so did we.

Know what? 44 years later, I still recall the theme song, that haunting melody, played on a harmonica.

I hope they find the masters get it all on DVD.
