Quotes

Guy: She became silently enraged the day she realized that she'd be judged by her looks for the rest of her life. It didn't matter that she was smart, did it? Boys don't care about that. Boys want long legs and smooth hair and big, round... eyes. She wants love so bad. Why isn't a great brain and a mediocre personality enough?

As good as the original

I used to love Love American style when I was a kid, and when this pilot for a revival turned up on TV, I watched it and was delighted that it was just as good as the original.

It was, as best I can recall (and it was 25 years ago, so I don't recall much) both as funny as the original show and had the surprising depth relative to other multi-story comedies like The Love Boat.

Alas, the powers that be didn't appreciate the show, which is a terrible shame. Ultimately the show is one of those tragic could-have-beens. Perhaps it was the wrong show for the time, or perhaps network executives are idiots (my theory). Ah well.
