With a stale plot and over-worked jokes, it is amazing that in 1999, someone in Hollywood is trying to revive this unimaginative sitcom for today's audience. Although it would be nice to see Valerie Harper on TV once again, this is not the vehicle for her.
Valerie plays a middle aged city employee with a teen aged daughter and a dysfunctional relationship with her father who once again appears in her life. In the first episode, the father appears, disappoints, and disappears (just like that) and we are left without any additional insights to the main characters.
Liz Torres turned in a solid comedic performance, but I can't help wonder if I haven't seen it before.
To the people who are re-testing this idea for a new incarnation of this series, DON'T! Revive some other show. Does anyone remember "Partners"?
