Could have been much better...
4 December 2002 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

I actually saw the one episode of this show when it ran in 1985. The premise was acceptable, a variation on the prince-and-pauper role-swapping story. I think there was a show around the same time where a couple buy an enchanted lamp that grants them the wish of swapping bodies, but doesn't give them the ability to switch back.

The problem with using this situation in a half-hour sitcom is that there is only so much you can set up in twenty-two minutes. And the writers weren't up to the task - most of the episode was filled with bathroom jokes as "Charlene" tried to figure out the physiological aspects of being a woman.

It wasn't Suzanne Somers' fault this show was a stinker. And it wasn't the concept that was bad, either - Blake Edwards used it in his movie "Switch" several years later.
