An unusual episode
26 February 2015 | by (Chicago, IL USA) – See all my reviews

The last episode of the series and an obvious attempt at a spin-off. Carmine goes to New York to try out for the cast of the famous rock musical "Hair", and moves in with a bunch of other aspiring actors in the process. I thought they did a great job on the production numbers from the play. I had never been a big fan/follower of the series or of Carmine, but this episode had such a "magical" quality and energy to it, that it made me wish I could have seen the spin off. Definitely one to catch if you ever have the chance. BTW, it's interesting to note that "One Day at a Time" did something comparable with the character of Schneider in its last episode a year later (sending him to Florida to take over the care of his niece and nephew after his brother died, after the departure of Ann and the girls to England).
