Burt Reynolds (as Wood Newton) is three years older than Elizabeth Ashley (as Freida Evans, Wood's meddlesome mother-in-law). In a 1969 segment of "Love, American Style," called 'Love and the Banned Book," (S1, E18) they play husband and wife. See more »
A low key Sitcom/drama that never found the right audience the show deserved. Its one of the good shows I used to watched on CBS that I wished was still on. Good performances were given by acting veterans like Burt Reynolds and Marilu Henner. "Evening Shade"(1990) had some interesting episodes that dealt with fascinating themes. Ossie Davis brought class to a television show which deserved better than what it got.
