Ms. Romano, Mrs. Romano, Miss Romano, 20 July 2016
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

One Day At A Time is how Bonnie Franklin took it with her new life as a liberated woman and divorcée. This show is one of the first where women predominate and they weren't scatterbrained fools like Lucy Ricardo.

Still there was a lot of humor in this show with Bonnie Franklin trying to raise a family of two daughters on more than just her divorced husband Joe Campanella. She got herself a job and was around as much as possible for her two daughters Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli.

The daughters were as different as could be. Phillips was a wild child and Bertinelli a good girl. That was an interesting part of the show, that two very different personality types could be with the children. Happens in a few million families across the globe. Over 9 seasons the girls went through a few boyfriends and got married, Phillips to Michael Lembeck and Bertinelli to Boyd Gaines.

Making an occasional appearance was Franklin's mother Nannette Fabray. She was an old fashioned woman, who tried very hard to understand the new feminist philosophy.

The janitor of their building was Pat Harrington, Jr. who was an alpha male, but over 9 seasons kind of softened his rough edges. I remember him addressing Franklin, Fabray, and Bertinelli as each preferred, Ms. Romano, Mrs. Romano, and Miss Romano. That summed up each of their outlooks on life.

A lot of humor and a realistic look at the problems of single mothers with kids is what One Day At A Time is remembered for.
