A Decent Syndicated Show!
13 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this show being on Saturday evenings back in the 1980s. That was when syndicated television shows like Throb and Mama's Family aired when it didn't succeed on prime time. Anyhow, Throb was alright. It wasn't bad. The writing was decent and so was the acting of Diana Canova. I swear that Jane Leeves from Frasier was on this show but I could be wrong because I don't see her name anywhere here. Like so many sitcoms of the 1980s, this show was somewhat mediocre for network but had a syndicated audience. I remember those days of syndication when you watched independent sitcoms like Throb and not infomercials. Sadly, they don't make many syndicated programs like they used too. Everybody has a network for them. But I do remember a time when syndicated television thrived and shows like Throb thrived or lasted longer than a few episodes. Sitcoms need time to develop and the networks don't give that time anymore and they don't want that audience neither.
