| Stereotypes in love
Bernadette Peters is a liberal photographer who espouses every liberal viewpoint out there in 1976. Richard Crenna is a conservative writer who espouses every conservative viewpoint that was out there in 1976. There are no nuances here, no "I agree with you on that point". They argue to the point of being shrill. Oh, and for some reason, in 1976 this show would have you believing conservatives are afraid to commit and liberals are not. In fact it is Peters' character trying to convince her future lover (Crenna) to commit to his middle aged girlfriend in the first episode. He cannot.

So on they go for the autumn of 1976 until spring 1977, arguing tirelessly, yet locked in the bonds of physical attraction and probably the attraction of verbal sparring. And after a few episodes of this it got old.

In the long run I think that this show helped Peters' career because she played her unlikeable character believably. I came here thinking I was the only person who remembered this old sitcom. I was surprised that reviewing this show was not virgin territory. Why do I remember it? Because when I was living in the dorm in college there was just one common TV set and the other girls wanted to watch this show.
