Great show!
8 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a pretty young kid when this show was on, but I can remember how much I loved it. I was surfing around on this site and came across Spring Byington's biography and I thought it was she who co-starred in the show as Ann Sheridan's mother, but come to find out, it was Ruth McDevitt. But I did remember the name of the show. I wish it would come out on DVD so I could see the show again. I loved all of the characters on the show. It didn't seem hokey or stupid or sappy to me, it seemed smart and funny, and so did all of the people on the show. Of course, like I said, I was just a kid. I was so sad when Ann Sheridan died and the show ended. I know sometimes if someone leaves a show, whether its a death or a career change, they will replace the person with another actor, but it sure wouldn't have worked in this case, so it was just as well the show ended, although all too early.
