Trivia

Ann's building is at 344 W. 78th Street. (Defiant One, Season 3). David, the little boy she meets in that ep, lives at 89th street. See more »

Goofs

Ann Marie moves to New York City from Brewster, NY, which is on the Metro North Railroad's Harlem Line to Grand Central Terminal. The footage behind the credits was shot on New Jersey Transit's Northeast Corridor Line (photographed from the rear of a train leaving New York and then shown backwards so the train appears to be going to New York, although on the wrong track).

Crazy Credits

The opening for season 1 only is not the famous train tracks, but a breathless and beautiful Ann Marie running across a NY street to a building, dressed in a pale blue coat, white gloves and shoes, white pocketbook under her arm. The train tracks don't come until seasons 2, 3, & 4, and season 5 adds lyrics to the up-tempo opening music ("Diamonds, daisies, snowflakes..."). See more »

Great Show
9 February 2007 | by smkmamdSee all my reviews

This is a charming, funny and lovely show. A pleasure to watch anytime. I didn't know about this show until it came out on DVD and now I love it. I'll buy every season. The main characters Ann and Donald (her boyfriend) have such chemistry. The show is basically about Ann Marie (an actress starting out) and her life in New York with work, friends and family. Marlo Thomas and her writers ensured the same consistent thread of quality in every show so the show has continuity. I find most shows that have stars as producers or in some power capacity are higher quality as they care about the show and characters. Marlo produced this show via her Daisy Production company as we learn in the first season booklet. I was disappointed to hear that everyone on the show wanted the show to continue but she didn't so she shut down after a few seasons. I think this show is a classic TV show. Ted Bessell as her boyfriend is perfect and they make a great on screen couple. Casting for this show was excellent.

If you are looking for sex in the city or Seinfeld this isn't it. This is a charming TV show that makes me long for the 1960's when life was a bit more simple and pleasurable and less rushed. I'd highly recommend this if you are looking for something just fun to watch but keep in mind it is from the 60's.
