Early dual-income family show
22 September 2009 | by vannalee-shopSee all my reviews

When I first watched the Cosby Show, I was reminded of this show, and I thought the Cosby Show had ripped off the concept. One of the reasons I liked this show was that both parents had a career, which was a new concept for me as a kid. Here's the setup, in case it doesn't sound familiar yet: Dad's a doctor, mom's a lawyer, teen-aged kids are living their own lives, only in Chicago, not Brooklyn. But Billie Bird was the heart of the show with all the humor of a lady too old to care anymore.

Of course, there was no adorable five-year-old like Rudy, but this show had a much more big-city feel than the Cosby Show. I'd like to see Nick-At-Nite bring it back, so we could see what was considered groundbreaking for the '80s.
