During the final season, producers made a controversial decision to shake things up by having one of the girls lose their virginity. Initially Blair was to be the character, but Lisa Whelchel protested it as the idea went against her deep seeded Christian beliefs. Whelchel further explained she didn't want her character to be seen as such an improper role model for the show's young viewers. Mindy volunteered to have her character lose her virginity instead because writers felt it was time for one of the characters to experience this and Natalie was in a long term relationship so Mindy felt it made sense for it to be her and the writers agreed.

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. Observant fans will remember those as the ones with the girls living in the dorm, prior to working in the cafeteria. Those were my favorites, and it seems like they never show them. Please get a clue USA. That's when the show was at it's best!
