I used to love it
9 April 2004 | by (San Fernando , CA) – See all my reviews

Back in 1977 (when I was 15) I loved 'On Our Own'. Maybe it was because it was filmed in NY and I got to see it taped live twice...but honestly, I loved the characters. Bess Armstrong & Lynnie Green were a great team. Some may compare them to Laverne And Shirley, but these were two very different characters. In addition, Dixie Carter was hysterical with her drawling delivery as well. Her comedic timing was impeccable. As an actor I would be honored to work with anyone involved with that show. It was a fun show and I missed it after the one season. There is always so much 'trash' on the air, yet sometimes the good one's get away. Larry
