Great, underrated sitcom, 6 September 2002
Author: meantime from USA

Aside from being a stepping stone to stardom for a then-unknown James Cromwell, the show was witty, progressive and more than a little racy. Revolving around the lives of the "broken-down" living in the equally rickety Hot L (Hotel) Baltimore, the sitcom proved to be too adult/heady for 1975 America, and was cancelled after one season.
