That Girl was designed around Miss Thomas and her personality /charm/ looks and timing made the show . Throw in Mr. Bessell,Lou Parker Bernie Kopell and a cast of many future stars and you have a show which holds up 40+ years later> Funny/poignant/warm/sensitive and in last season became relevant with current topics> Nobody doesn't like something about this show and most love it. If you had to pick a short list of shows from that era this would be on it. It was genuine and didn't pretend to be anything it wasn't. Every week had a fresh different episode,although to be expected some were better and some were in 2 parts]..Miss Thomas simply lit up the screen and captivated the hearts of young girls and the eyes of most guys ... They and myself simply couldn't get enough of her.
