Another "Happy Days" spin-off and one fondly remembered from my youth. I've just watched the pilot again and will try to watch more as it lived up to memory of a happy, funny and entertaining show.

The "take two girls" set-up works very well and enables the show to still function in the same time-line as "Happy Days" and yet not seem too similar despite the familiar 50's era surroundings.

Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams make an ideal pairing, Marshall as the louder, brasher Laverne and Williams as the cuter, more sensitive Shirley. Their two dorkish-but-adoring adoring would-be boyfriends Lenny and Squiggy provide more light relief in the background but, as its perky little theme tune says, these two dreamchasers won't give up till they've made at least one dream come true.

Nicely written, with just an occasional touch of risqué humour peeping through and well acted, occasionally benefiting initially from one-shot guest appearances by some of the "Happy Days" crew, the show soon learned to stand on its own and deservedly ran for several series on its own merits.
