Trivia

When Susan Saint James became pregnant during the show's fourth season, it was not written into the show because her character was single. She was filmed either with strategically placed props or by having her character Kate recovering from a broken leg. However, in a flashback episode that took place when Kate and Allie were younger and they were pregnant with their daughters on the show, St. James was allowed to show her pregnancy. See more »

Warm memories
4 May 2008 | by contact-711See all my reviews

I loved Kate and Allie.

I haven't seen it for years but I remember it being funny and smart, and the first show that had divorced women just getting on with things.

In '80s Britain if you were from a single parent household you were nothing but a criminal in the making! - this show was the tonic to all that stuff and nonsense, and I have very warm memories of settling down to my weekly slice of New York life.

  • IMDb has a silly rule about having to have 10 lines of text before they'll allow you to post a comment, so now I have to ramble on although I've already made my point. So here you go. Ramble, ramble, ramble, ramble -
