Storyline

This light and fluffy sitcom changed formats and producers almost every season. Originally it was about widow Doris Martin and her two young sons who left the big city for the quiet and peace of her family's ranch, which was run by her dad Buck and ranchhand Leroy. Later Doris, Buck and sons Billy and Toby moved to San Francisco, where Doris got a job as a secretary to bumbling magazine publisher Michael Nicholson. In Season Three, the Martin family moved into an apartment above the Paluccis' Italian restaurant, and Doris began writing features for Today's World magazine. Finally, the kids, family, Nicholson, the Paluccis' and all other cast members vanished, and Doris became a single staff writer for Today's World, where her new boss was stentatorial-voiced Cy Bennett.

I still love to watch this show when it is on!
24 July 2004 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

I had not seen the Doris Day show since I was very little (about 5) when it was on the air. I saw it listed in the TV Guide oh-so-many years later, and it was fascinating to watch! I love the scenery of the farms (though perhaps so-so writing) -- and later the scenery of her Plymouth Barracuda convertible driving through the beautiful scenery of the city -- this show is worth watching for the cast itself, which consisted of very talented people in comedy. It is worth noting that Doris Day said she did not know she had been signed up for a comedy series until her husband suddenly died - she quickly became producer after the first few scripts.
