A young surgeon becomes bored with his wife and family, he has a very successful career, but even with having so much in life, he feels empty and goes through a series of brief and meaningless relations with attractive women.
Richard and Judy, parents of son Jeff, divorce after 17 years of marriage. Jerry and Susan, parents of Cindy and Jan, break up after a ten year marriage. Richard and Susan fall in love with each other, get married and move (with Cindy & Jan) into Susan's house. Unfortunately, Jerry lives only a block away, and Judy just a half-mile from the Evans home, so both ex-spouses drop in from time to time to stir up trouble.Written by

I remember when this series premiered; I was just entering my teens and was interested in all of the mystifying aspects of modern adult life.
Like many other Larry Hagman fans, I was always looking forward to whatever series he chose to do in the wake of "I Dream of Jeannie".
Having enjoyed his previous effort, "The Good Life", I first tuned in to "Here We Go Again" with scant trepidation.
I was not disappointed - this was a smart and funny show dealing with the then-topical subject of newly remarried divorced couples and their interactions with each other and their ex-spouses.
The stars were great in this one: smart, sultry Nita Talbot; upbeat, handsome Dick Gautier; and of course the sometimes flustered but always affable Larry Hagman. The ensuing romances were sweet, and the banter was bright and brittle. I found every episode that I saw to be very funny & entertaining, and I looked forward to seeing this show every week.
This would be a series worth seeking out for those interested in the rapidly changing social climate of the early 1970s U.S.; remember, less than half a decade before this show premiered, the subject of divorce (and life after divorce) was rarely if ever mentioned in network TV comedies.
It is perhaps not surprising that this series was too advanced to live, and it was unceremoniously canceled after just thirteen episodes (as was "The Good Life"). I was very disappointed at the time; I had hoped that this show would play well with the fans of concurrent adult-oriented comedies of the time, such as "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Bob Newhart Show", and others, but it was not to be.
This series deserved a better fate, and I would love to see a few episodes again to discern how its view of modern life has held up over the past three decades.
Of course, if this show had been a hit, we would never have had the pleasure of meeting a certain J. R. Ewing, at least not as we all now know and love(to hate) him.
