A mother who's trying to double as father. Two headstrong daughters. A series of the world's least likely (and most amorous) men. The result is a bubbling mixture of small chuckles and big laughs that just won't quit. (season 1) See more »
The original version of this sitcom is considered groundbreaking in that it presented an all female family in a serious way; and in it's serious and pretty realistic depiction of divorce. But it was not critically acclaimed. The new version is critically acclaimed though; and has been nominated for multiple emmies and Golden Globes. See more »
The family supposedly moves from Logansport,Indiana to Indianapolis at the beginning of the series.
However, the area where they are shown departing is clearly not "Logansport" which is a small city of roughly 20k located in the north-central portion of the state. No major interstates run in or near Logansport and the city is surround by farmland and some low rolling hills. See more »
My memories about this series are mostly aesthetic. I perfectly remember a wide, fancy, bold furnished condo's apartment where Ann Romano Royer was used to live into with her hysterical daughters. I did appreciated Bonnie Franklin performing as a hurrican's strength in spite of her sweet, sophisticated glance. I still consider Franklin a sensitive artist, a talented actress. Too bad not to see her around nowadays, in Europe at least!
