Did You Know?


Much of what Poncherello is shown doing regarding Vanessa before their date in modern times could be in violation of California's stalking laws. California passed stalking laws in 1990 partially as a result of the death of actress Theresa Saldana in 1982 as well as several high-profile murders in the same decade. See more »


Mr. Parker calls in to the answering service that he is going to the bank, and leaves right away. Sandy, the receptionist at the answering service, then calls via radio to the robbers that she has a job for them. Although she would not have known of the job until Parker called, the robbers are already waiting outside his home when she radios them. See more »

i have had seen the show as where i was so overwhelmed that i couldn't imagine on how it would feel to loose a loved one to a drunk driver i have been wondering why its not listed anywhere, and was there a reason that this program was not allowed to be shown i would love to buy a copy, have any idea on where i can even buy one i would be grateful, i would be sure to watch it over and over again i love watching the old TV shows.. i feel like i am living in that life again.. making me feel like i am not old as i don't feel old,

but my kids and grandkids end up watching some of the old shows and there like grandma..
