In Easy Valley, Jim Howard is an anthropology professor at Josiah Kessel College which was founded by his grandfather. He lives in a large house along with his civic-minded wife Martha; their grown son Peter, Peter's wife Wendy, and grandson Jake; and their younger son Teddy who is the same age as his nephew. Nobel-prize winning fellow professor Luther Quince is a bachelor (he regrets not meeting Martha first) and a dear friend of the family who often stops by for meals and to give his opinions. In each episode, Jim speaks directly to the audience and always ends by wishing peace, love, and laughter. Written by
Utterly outdated for the 1970s. Could have been filmed in 1961!
Utterly ridiculous. This show could have been filmed in 1961, considering the atrocious fashions and music and Jimmy Stewart's childish acting. I assume Jimmy Stewart insisted on this since I have never seen a TV show from 1971 that looks so outdated. It is no wonder it was cancelled. It's a miracle that so many episodes were made. Who was the target audience? People at the old folks home? Every male has such ultra short outmoded haircuts that people would have literally starred at them in 1971 wondering where they had come from... Apparently Jimmy Stewart was living in a dream world in the 1970s.
If you are a fan of early 1960s conservative humor then you will probably like this nonsense.
