Interesting installment of a long-forgotten daytime feature
2 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Julie Kavner was becoming a star as Rhoda's kid-sister Brenda when she appeared in this teleplay. I don't remember too much about this, but it was part of a mid-70s daytime series on ABC called the ABC Afternoon Playbreak (which would air maybe once a month or so in place of one of ABC's soaps). From what I remember, Julie's character is addicted to a gameshow called "Lucky 13". She appears on the show and as fate would have it, she becomes a longtime undefeated champion. One thing I clearly remember about this show is that they used the classic "Hollywood Squares" music as the music for "Lucky 13" (remember that hooky brass riff? Of course you do!). I think her winning streak ends when her love interest faces her as a competitor.
