Charles S. Dutton,
You know, there was a time when sitcoms were just simple evening entertainment. Only recently did they have to have such depth and intellectual meaning.
As a thirty something now, I think that this was average of the time; predictable humor. I was about Patti LaBelle was particularly good, and it introduced her to another generation of youngsters. I enjoyed tuning in to see the different performers every night. It was a kind of Kidd Video of sorts for my friends and I. (Now I'm really showing my age!)
Anyway I see as equal to everything else I watched: Three's Company, The Jeffersons, Family Matters, Full House. They weren't "deep TV", but they ran their courses quite a while, huh?
