That's all this show was. I barely recall it. There was a series of performers back then who picked up TV shows, but not a lot came of any of them.
Carol Potter of course would go on to be the mother on Beverly Hills 90210.
The only reason I recall this show was because I began watching one episode, and we see a working class black man enter an apartment to his loving wife, then we see an elderly white woman in a robe fixing her dinner, and finally a beautiful young dark-haired woman in dark purple leotards exercising to music.
Suddenly, there is a rumble, each of them feel it, then suddenly their surroundings are collapsing around them.
The building caved in. Rescuers appear on the scene, and miraculously, the elderly woman is found, seemingly unharmed.
The young woman in the leotards unfortunately is dead.
We see the black woman pinned under debris, and she gives way to a scream. If her husband was alive, he was unconscious.
So what happened? This was up to Conners and co. to figure out.
I've always remembered it was a building flaw and that 'concrete cement' was used in the building construction, which made it flawed.
So they investigated who the contractor was and why they did so.
As it is, I watched no more of the episode, since it showed no concern for the people in the building we had seen.
I still wonder and think about this show, and this episode, but it was just too much a cliché of its time.
