Someone looked into the future of American lingo regarding child rearing because Time Out is right!
6 November 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

It's easy to see why this was never picked up as a sitcom because its pilot episode has a premise that would have had critics Eve Arden's line in "Mildred Pierce" about knowing why alligators eat their young. Ginger (Candy Moore) is an obnoxious teenager who has no qualms about interrupting everybody else's life around her in order to get what she wants while utilizing positive behavioral patterns to passive aggressively manipulate everybody. Blame housekeeper Lizzie (an amusing Margaret Hamilton) for possibly allow her to sneak a couple of cups of her Maxwell House coffee while her back was turned. It certainly isn't because parents Margaret Hayes and Karl Swenson didn't discipline her. They certainly do. The idiotic plot line here has Ms. Moore playing fairy god sister for her older sibling trying to get her a car so they can go out on a date. This has her invading a car shop, repair garage and even trying to get money out of a rich kid while offering her own father as collateral. Whatever Candy wants, Candy gets, and this just propels the myth that spoiled children, even those pretending artificial charm, will always succeed in the end. She does succeed, however, in grating on the viewer's last nerve to the point of urging the parents to look up a nice boarding school, preferably very far away.
