For over 600 shows Matt and Kitty never had any intimate contact to my knowledge. Yet on one episode while Kitty was on hiatus or had left the show, Matt is seen sucking on, I think, it was Beverly Garland from My Three Sons. What's up with that? Was there some kind of compact or directive from the producers?
There were many poignant moments on the show, especially near the ending, where a kiss had to be called for by the writers, but one never came. Very awkward.
But the actors handled it well and all this detracted very little from the shows. Amanda and James deserve a lot of credit for pulling this off.
