This was the funniest sitcom Valerie Harper has done (except of course for the Mary Tyler Moore Show). The city manager's office that provided the setting is the perfect locale for the parade of crazies that give comedic impetus to this type of show (sane, regular put-upon star surrounded by weird/interesting/funny supporting cast--Bob Newhart is the patron saint of these). The funniest was James Lorinz as the security guard (in one episode, he was convinced that white-out was being stolen to aid illegal immigration; to prove his point, he painted his entire body with it). One of the Mysteries of the Universe is why this failed while "The Hogan Family," a profoundly mediocre show, lasted several years.
