Storyline

Mary's aunt and respected newspaperwoman Flo Meredith makes a surprise visit to Minneapolis, a surprise at least to Mary. It's isn't a surprise for Lou, as he and Flo have been talking about producing a television documentary about the Flynns, a local couple with twenty children from a combination of their previous marriages. Lou and Flo want Mary and Murray's help in producing the documentary, which they are more than happy to do. Ted's offer to narrate is another story. Regardless, a wrench is thrown into the proceedings when the Flynns announce that they are getting a divorce. Flo wants to capitalize on that aspect of the story, whereas Lou wants it to be an epilogue to the primary story they were going to do anyway. As such, they decide to submit separate story ideas to the network, with the better man or woman producing the documentary. Mary, Murray and Ted are forced to take sides, which is an especially difficult task for Mary. Written by Huggo

We Didn't Need This One
28 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of my least favorite character in this series is Mary's aunt. She is abrasive, insensitive, and really tiresome. In this one she shows up at the station to do a story on a blended family that has 20 kids. She starts out planning to work with Lou, but things get competitive and soon she is paired off with Murray and Mary works with Mr. Grant. The idea is that the powers that be in the station will look over the two plans and choose one or the other. Except for Ted's whining and changing sides whenever possible, it's kind of boring. Also, this camaraderie is so clichéd that it wears really thin.
