When I fell in love with Anthony Perkins...
I remember this show vividly because I had taped it when it aired and watched it over and over again when I was a kid. To the best of my knowledge there was only one episode. It was about a really eccentric author played by Anthony Perkins who marries your all around average woman. Both had children, who were also radically different from each other. Everything is just peachy until Perkins' ex-(and I should mention deceased) wife decides to have her say in his remarriage.... It's like the Brady Bunch meets The Munsters meets Ghost. I loved it for the cheesy special effects, the corny jokes, and for of course, Anthony Perkins. If anyone out there is able to get their hands on the episode, I would definitely give it a try!
