Classic Lost Episode!
8 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Who says you can't have fun when you're old. In this episode which features guest stars like Imogene Coca as Aunt Gert and Jack Gilford as a resident of a nursing home. Mama Harper visits Aunt Gert at the nursing home and is appalled by the treatment of the nurse played by Barbara Stuart who treats them like little children rather than adults. When Mama takes charge, things start to change and Aunt Gert comes back in form as Mama remembers her with the spunk and vigor in their youth. This episode for some strange reason does not get played often enough. Somehow it is either lost or forgotten but it really should always be on in syndication. Unfortunately, I'm praying and hoping for season two of Mama's Family. We can only hope that they'll restore the episodes so we can always enjoy them.
