I liked it better in syndication than on prime time!
25 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have always liked Amy Bernard since I loved watching Wings so much. But since it first aired on prime time in the early 1980s, it's hard not to imagine changes with cast members. Marian Mercer who plays the restaurant hostess and piano player Paul Kreppel who plays Sonny remained from the beginning to the end. There was three years between the network cancellation and it's remergence in syndication so of course there were changes to the cast. In fact, it got better as the show progressed. Sheryl Lee Ralph joined the cast as well. I'm not saying it was one of the best shows but I remember their black and white outfits, their heartaches, and triumphs on the series in both network and syndication. I miss syndicated comedies. If you're like me and you liked the show on prime time and missed it too, you'll just be happy to get it back in any form.
