I would buy this show today
23 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the funniest show of 1985 and it was tragic when they canceled it. I wish it was on DVD or video. I would buy it today. I believe it was so controversial that it scared the southern baptist coalition and republican party of things come. Obviously it was exactly 23 years ahead of its time. When President H. Clinton takes office I hope she will invite Patty Duke to the inauguration. The show touched on many issues that have come to life in recent years. Why was it canceled? If anyone has a tape of the show I would like to buy it. The characters were extremely realistic. If anyone knows when this show will be available on video please let me know.
