I saw an episode of this show at a TV focus-group screening recently. Apparently someone wants to bring back Valerie Harper and wants to know if Americans are ready for it. At any rate, it was absolutely hilarious, the dialog was snappy and original and the characters were a great mix of cynical government functionaries. Even interaction between the single mother (Valerie Harper) and her daughter, which could have easily been saccharine, was smart and effective. Probably one of the funniest sitcom episodes I have ever seen. It had an intelligence that is rare today and was almost unheard of in comedy series of the era. The fact that this series got canceled in its infancy while "Full House" ran from 87-95 is simply an atrocity.
