This series had major production problems before even getting on the air, in part because NBC-TV, which was broadcasting it, demanded that the producers introduce happy endings for each show. This significantly changed at least one real-life story dramatized on the series ("The Bad Girl") in the book became ("Everybody's Girl") on the series. TV Guide reviewer Robert MacKenzie, who had read the book, commented that several of the stories' forced happy endings transformed the show from "steak into hamburger." See more »
This was an engaging anthology program which came on NBC on Thursdays the summer of 1977. Each week we followed the lives of different members of the high school Class of '65. I still remember some of the episodes: A girl becomes a semi-successful folk singer; two buddies try to open a restaurant in the desert where a highway will go through; and Richard Hatch (from "Battlestar Galactica") played a ne'er-do-well. I would love to find this on DVD, or at least on TVLand. It's lifespan was short but it gave me many fond memories along with other great 70's television like "Rockford Files."
