CGiii Comment

Only 20 episodes...

It wasn't that funny back in the late 70s - and, it's still not that funny.

Dated...but, hats off to them for including a gay couple!!!


The(ir) Blurb...

20 half-hour episodes. Jane Lucas, an Agony Aunt with a call-in radio show, has her own set of troubles with her very Jewish mother and her husband Laurence. Then there's the crazy lives of her station co-workers and the nice gay couple who live upstairs.
