A prime example of bad 70's TV
7 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show had every 70's teeny bopper element aimed to appeal to the lowest intellect and thus make it a hit - except this time cute boys and inane, jiggly, dumb blondes were not enough to cover for horrible scripts, contrived situations, bad acting, and unbelievable plots. The show tried to be a spin-off/tie-in to Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley (or at least ride on their success) by utilizing actors - most notably Eddie Mekka and Scott Baio - from those shows and making the title role the cousin of Happy Days' Howard Cunningham. Having Nancy Walker as its star, scantily-clad bimbos wiggling around the set, and pretty boy co-stars to elicit screams from young girls in the audience, however, could never have saved it from itself.

This show is best forgotten in a footnote to bad television.
