"Mary Hartman" Without Louise Lasser was Still Good
19 April 2008 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

After Louise Lasser left "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" in late 1977, most of the original cast remained and the show was renamed "Forever Fernwood". In my opinion there was a very slight fall-off in the show's quality (how could you possibly replace Lasser, the title character?), but the series remained very funny and very good. The writing was just as daring, and the comic situations were just as campy and absurd. I remember watching the final episode on March 31, 1978, after which the show simply disappeared, much to my disappointment. I'd love to see a DVD release of both this show and "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman", but as yet it hasn't happened.
