This sitcom set in Washington, D.C. detailed the relationship between 49-year-old conservative political writer Richard Barrington and his liberal photographer girlfriend Charley. Despite frequent arguments concerning current events, topical concerns and the generation gap, Richard and Charley stayed together, much to the amusement of their friends and co-workers. Written by

The only thing I really remember about this politically-oriented sitcom was one joke by Richard Crenna. During the 1976 presidential race, in which Jimmy Carter ran against Gerald Ford with Bob Dole as Ford's running mate (yup, he was nationally known even way back then), Crenna comes home from shopping to say that while at the supermarket he'd seen a Carter sticker on a Ford, a Ford sticker on a Chevy, and a Dole sticker on a banana! With that kind of humor, maybe it's no wonder this show didn't last that long. And with that observation, I'm off to the produce market!
