Someone should bring this one back! Please!
10 April 2008 | by (MId-west, USA) – See all my reviews

My husband and I saw this when it was on in 1988 (we were newly weds in our first cramped living quarters). We have talked about it and quoted lines from this series ever since.

We especially loved the nasty French maid who always responded to requests with a cigarette dangling out of her mouth! How glamorous!

Why do they "can" efforts that are this sharp? And after only seven episodes? There should be some night on some channel that could spotlight these old series---not the TV Land thing where they feature the Bradies and the Mayberries that have huge followings -- but the series that have smaller followings and a sort of cult status.

It might bring some good writing back to light.
