| I remember this show
I am so happy to read that other people remember and enjoyed "It's a Great Life" as much as I did. I was a little kid when I saw this series, but I laughed my head off. I've often wondered if it was just a silly show or really funny - now that I've read the other posts, I realize it was a truly funny comedy about GIs living together.

For some reason, I remember one of the guys making coffee and having it pour out of the pot like a thick syrup.

The handsome William Bishop sticks in my head as does Michael O'Shea, whom I've loved ever since. My memories of James Dunn and Francis Bavier are a little more vague, but hey, I was perhaps 7 years old.

I, too, wish there were a way to see "It's a Great Life" again.
