I was deployed to Qatar twice in the last year (2003-2004) and a TV station in Qatar was showing it (they love American TV Series) and I got hooked on this show. I didn't know anything about it but it was on during the weekends (for Qatar that is Thurs and Friday) on America Plus which is a satellite network carried in all the hotels and U.S. Facilities in the Persian Gulf region. It got to the point that I planned my days around the show, lame as that may sound. It really appealed to the 70's American image that I missed being 6000 miles from home. That show is one of the few things I miss about not being there (I don't miss the summers). I liked all the actors and the storyline while corny at times was entertaining. I never saw it when it originally aired but would buy the DVDs if they came out.
