A Nice Memory
3 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 12 when this show aired. I remember my whole family really enjoyed watching it every week. I was disappointed it was canceled after only one season. I would love to see it again. Some shows stick in your memory and others don't despite the length of the run of the show. I have always followed what the cast did after the series ended. I'm really glad that Lynne Greene had a successful career behind the scenes. She was a great actress especially in her appearances on Golden Girls as a young "Dorothy". I was sad to hear that Gretchen Wyler died this year of cancer. She was a brilliant actress on TV and on Broadway. Bess Armstrong is still going strong. It is a credit to the casting of On Own that the cast went on to have long careers, although, not high profile. I doubt this show will ever show up on DVD but it would be nice to see it again.
