| An Okay Spin-Off!
I remember when the network gave Marla Gibbs her own show as Florence Johnston who worked in a posh hotel with Ruth Brown and Liz Torres in the housekeeping department. Of course, Marla was much better on The JEffersons and when the show got canceled that Marla was welcome back on the Jeffersons. it proved how much she meant to the cast as wisecracking sidekick to Isabel Sanford and Sherman Hemsley as the Jeffersons in their upscale New York City apartment. Of course, the show never lasted long even with Marla Gibbs as Florence Johnston in her own series. Fortunately, she had gained sitcom stardom on 227 playing straight to Jackee's character. As Florence Johnston, Marla Gibbs was outstanding as the maid that you just love to hate and learn to love at the same time. Florence was never more truthful, honest, or kinder than when she was the with the Jeffersons. Thank God, the show did get canceled and we got Flo back.
