I used to watch this TV show and I loved it. Would you believe that I still have some episodes on VHS that I saved; especially the one with the whole group singing the song "Love Hurts" which I play over and over to nowadays. I wish they have either VHS/DVD tapes of those shows. Miquel Ferrer who was and still an excellent actor, especially in the Boston show"Jordan" and Ernie Hudson who then used to act with Andy Griffith in the early episodes before the other actor Clarence Gilyard Jr., Jay Johnson with his "venquiroist" doll and love the bold, brash Eileen Davidson who became well-known in the soap opera world and several other actors were good and they were funny. Their actions were silly but at least brought humor to the show. I have always looked forward to those shows. During that time, it was one of the rare TV shows that was closed captioned for the deaf.
