Great casting!
25 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show had great casting with actors like Paul Kreppel who play Sonny in both series, Marian Mercer, Barrie Youngfellow, the beautiful Ann Jillian, Gail Edwards, Wendy Schall, and Louise Lasser from the Woody Allen films. The show took place in the evening at a posh restaurant in an Los Angeles skyscraper. For a thirty minutes show that aired first in prime time television and later in syndication, it was a memorable and decent show to watch. But it didn't get enough viewers or whatever the reason and was canceled on network television but later resurfaced to syndication which did very well on Saturday afternoon television. I have to say that I always watched it on television during my youth and never understood the networks which canceled fare and attractive television programming in favor of something better or most cases it was worse than expected.
