It was fun seeing Florence Henderson sing country.
22 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband spotted Mickey Gilley....that was a pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed this episode. If only Mrs. Fletcher was a real person...she's so NICE. I think they should bring this series back...only problem is, no one could ever replace Angela Lansbury. The policeman who keeps making up song lyrics used to be in a series called "Brothers". I don't think that that series lasted too long. My husband thought he saw Lloyd Bridges in this episode, but I was happy to tell him he was wrong. When I was younger, my mom used to watch this show, and I didn't pay any attention to it. Now that I am older, I appreciate why she loved this show so much!
