User Reviews

loved that atmosphere and Bonnie Franklin too
21 March 2003 | by nils_astherSee all my reviews

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!
