Trivia

This episode was the pilot for a potential spin-off series starring Rita Moreno and Paul Dooley. But it was unpopular with audiences so the concept was retooled and became the series Empty Nest (1988). Only David Leisure's character was brought over to the new series, though his name changed from Oliver to Charley Dietz. See more »

Goofs

When Dorothy snaps at Oliver, she mentions him "throwing up in the pool" at a new year's party at Blanche's house. There is no pool on the girls' property (which is Blanche's house, and they've always all lived there); it is never seen or mentioned outside of this episode. See more »

Agree with the first review: trite, artificial and laboured
21 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan and I loved this series when I was in my 20s. Watching series 2 for the first time, but this last one really jarred. Characters completely introduced out of the blue. Paul Dooley makes a bit of a go of his character, but Rita Moreno was bland. Before I googled this episode I was wondering if it could be some forced attempt to introduce a new show on the back of the popularity of The Golden Girls - and I was right. I found it frustrating to watch, and a little cynical of the production company to try this kind of approach. Apparently the show was drastically reworked, with different main characters and it lasted 5-6 years. They must have done something pretty radical, as this episode dies on its feet.
