This series had major production problems before even getting on the air, in part because NBC-TV, which was broadcasting it, demanded that the producers introduce happy endings for each show. This significantly changed at least one real-life story dramatized on the series ("The Bad Girl") in the book became ("Everybody's Girl") on the series. TV Guide reviewer Robert MacKenzie, who had read the book, commented that several of the stories' forced happy endings transformed the show from "steak into hamburger." See more »
I fondly remember sitting enraptured in front of the TV while holding my first baby. I thoroughly enjoyed the concept of peeking into classmates lives ten years after graduation. I'd like to do that too! It was also a show that I didn't have to worry about covering my son's eyes or ears while watching. I really love that I can see some of today's (& yesterday's) mega stars and remember the first time I saw them on the "Class of 65". Annette O'Toole became one of my all time favorite actresses after seeing her on this show. The young Don Johnson as an injured returning Nam Vetran was heart touching and he was so hot back then too. I'll have to do some digging, but I seem to recall a young John Ritter and maybe John Denver making appearances too. Yes, I would also love a summer of "65" reruns, as apposed to the 100+ channels of reruns of crime dramas.
