The original version of this sitcom is considered groundbreaking in that it presented an all female family in a serious way; and in it's serious and pretty realistic depiction of divorce. But it was not critically acclaimed. The new version is critically acclaimed though; and has been nominated for multiple Emmy's and Golden Globes.
In the episodes' intro, she is wearing what appears to be a "Coast Guard Combat Action" ribbon with her Army ribbons. The CG Combat Action medal is awarded to the Navy, USMC and Coast Guard personnel only.
