In that movie one of her best friends was played by Alexa Kennin. This is ironic because in the "New York New York" episode Jo's best friend is also played by Alexa Kennin. See more »
This show aired when I was just entering my teens, and I can't think of a
better time to have had such a wonderful show to watch. It was as if
someone had asked my little-girl imagination what it's dream show would be,
and then made it just for me. I've enjoyed the re-runs on USA, but can't
quite understand why they never show the earliest episodes from 1979.

seems like they never show them. Please get a clue USA. That's when the
show was at it's best!
