Did You Know?

Lynn Redgrave left the series in 1981 in a very public dispute with Universal Television. The studio claimed that the dispute related to her salary, while Redgrave claimed that the studio refused to allow her to breast feed her newborn daughter in between takes on the set. Redgrave sued the studio, but lost when the litigation was dismissed thirteen years later.See more »

Was Great During the First Season, 2 October 2003
Author: Brian Washington ( from Los Angeles, California

This was a pretty good show during its first season. The thing that made this show watchable was the chemistry between Wayne Rogers and Lynn Redgrave as Charlie and Ann and that relationship provided the a lot of the humor for the show. Also, the relationship between David Wayne and Ray Buktenica and doctors Weatherby and Solomon respectively gave this show a real kick in the pants. Unfortunately, after Ms. Redgrave left because of a contract dispute, the whole dynamic changed and the show went downhill from there. If it weren't for that, this show would probably have had a very long run on television.
