    That Rare Sit-Com

    By PatinPDX, Apr 06, 2012

    "Anything But Love", I fell in love with that show from the start. The combination of Jamie Lee Curtis and Richard Lewis was magical. The late Richard Frank added just the right touch with his gift for one-liners and his ability to just steal the scene with ease. The one thing that made me enjoy it as much as I did was that it was one of the few shows on at that time that credited the audience with intelligence. Every episode had one line that wasn't cookie cutter, that required a certain amount of knowledge of history, current events or culture to get it. Which sit-com then or even now would refer to a woman as looking like "the first runner-up in the Nina Khrushchev look-alike contest"? How many today have even HEARD of either Nina Khrushchev or her husband, Nikita Khrushchev? It was not always pandering to the basic and the common that set this show apart from the others. I still miss it.moreless
