Trivia

Carl Reiner wrote an episode in which Jenny was to walk in on Dick and Jenny having sex. When CBS refused to air the episode, Reiner protested by stating he would never work with CBS again after the third season. But Reiner returned to CBS in 1981 to appear in Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color: Walt Disney: One Man's Dream (1981) and Skokie (1981). The episode aired in syndicated reruns. See more »

23 December 2003 | by (east orange, nj) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this show even more than the original Dick van Dyke show. I always found Mary Tyler Moore a little annoying - never liked her show, but loved Rhoda - and found most of the characters a little one-note (Sally couldn't find someone to marry, Buddy couldn't say anything nice about his wife, Mel couldn't say anything nice about anyone but Alan and that was fake, and Alan was bald). But I really enjoyed this, even though I only got to see a few episodes. The episode where Dick got stuck in a tree was a hoot! And I always loved Hope Lange. She never over-acted or over-reacted, but just seemed real.
