I remember this show when it premiered back in 1986. I was 17 then and like most straight men from 14 to 94 watched it solely to see Caryn Richman in her sexy bathing suits. She was funny and the stories, unrealistic as they were, were fun to watch. I just kept waiting to see what sexy outfit Caryn would be wearing next. Sydney Penny's character was O.K., although a personal source who has worked with her in the past said she is a real b**ch. Dean Butler's character was a wimp and tiresome. They should have hooked Gidget up with someone who was more of guy than him. He never wanted to do anything outlandishly fun with her and was a party pooper most of the time. A kind of wannabe Ricky Ricardo. All in all it was a cute show that could have done one or two more seasons. I miss Caryn Richman, she is so cool and has a hot body as well. Besides the God-Awful Brady Bunch reunion movies, I've never seen her in anything else since The New Gidget. Come back Caryn, we miss you!
