High-school teacher Joan Gallagher depends on the daily support, counsel, and companionship of her best friends, psychiatrist Ruby and music teacher Betsy. Although Ruby seems to be the picture of strength and stability, she lets herself be taken advantage of by Betsy, who is locked in and on/off relationship with fellow teacher Mark. Joan also bonds with Alice Adams, a new student-teacher at the school. The series focuses on the private lives of an intimate group of high-school teachers and explores the complexity and endurance of close friendships among women, as well as the challenging relationship between Joan and Jake--two bright, independent, experienced people--as they blunder toward intimacy.Written by

"WHAT ABOUT JOAN," is my opinion, is a pretty good ABC sitcom. I don't think I've seen every episode, but I still enjoyed it. It's hard to say which episode was my favorite. However, I think it was always funny when a mishap occurred. I always laughed at that. Despite the fact that it was a short-lived series, it was nice that all the main characters stayed with the show throughout its entire run. It seems that no one stays with a show throughout its entire run. Everyone always gave a good performance, the production design was spectacular, the characters and everything about them were well-designed, and the writing was always very strong. In conclusion, I hope some network brings it back on the air for fans of the show to see.
