Trivia

The casting of John Randolph as the right wing father-in-law "Red" McGuire was an inside joke. Randolph was one of the Hollywood actors who had been blacklisted for many years due to his prior membership with the Communist Party. See more »

Another fine example of network shortsightedness...
17 June 2006 | by vexnerSee all my reviews

What I remember most about this series is that MTM's voice-over narration was sometimes scathingly hilarious - the kind of surprising candor that makes you laugh so unexpectedly hard that it takes your breath away momentarily.

(I remember making a mental note not to eat dinner while watching this show, because MTM made me laugh so hard at unexpected times during the narration!)

The feeling I got was that the writers were striving very hard to make sure that the dialog was modern and adult, probably so they could in no way be accused of relying on MTM's earlier, more sentimental, good-girl image for conventional laughs.

The network was incredibly stupid not to give this series more of a chance to catch on. Six episodes - sheesh! By the time you find it, it's already cancelled!!

The clueless broadcast networks are doomed by their own impatience.
