Better Than Life with Elizabeth!
Betty White's second sitcom is about newlyweds, Gus and Vicki Angel, who live in Los Angeles, California. Unlike her first show, "Life with Elizabeth," this show has more interaction with outside characters. If you thought Betty White was a riot on Life with Elizabeth, you will love her as Vicki Angel here. The fifties' sitcoms were more light hearted and fair despite the obvious restraint during the time period. Betty White was still gorgeous and smart and affable here. Although her female characters tend to shy away from motherhood which I don't understand. Betty White would have been a terrific mother if she had given it a try. As the wife in both sitcoms, she was the equal to her husband's character even if not the breadwinner. She manages to convey comedy and intelligence into her performances. Betty White is a class act who is still acting on television and film. She should be honored with a Kennedy Center Honors and a National Medal of the Arts. She would have been awarded Damehood in England so it's time that she got the same recognition here in her country.
