Great update to a classic
22 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am surprised there are so few reviews for this show. It was short lived, but it was great. The producers tried to update the Tracy-Hepburn classic and succeeded with a charm and grace thanks to a strong cast. Blythe Danner and Ken Howard had real chemistry. They both were just coming up as actors, but their talent is obvious. The other reviewer missed the best scene of the episode he hated. In the end, Blythe Danner's character goes back to the restaurant that refuses to seat women wearing pants, and she takes her pants off. It is okay, because she is wearing a shirt dress. Her husband applauds her actions and the patrons give her a standing ovation. The ending was a clever funny way to make a point. In another episode they did a dangerous copy of a scene from the original movie, and they pulled it off. This show was canceled because it was too smart and well acted for TV of the day. This was the Brady Bunch era after all. Because of this show I decided to watch everything Danner and Howard did, and I have been greatly rewarded for following their careers.
