This was one of the best shows on television. It was so good that people believed the characters were real people! If only reality was this good.
The series ran for 7 years. It could have gone on for more if NBC hadn't made the mistake of cancelling it. Still, it was a good, strong run and a very enjoyable, and at times timeless, series.
I'm so glad it's out on DVD. I started watching it again before it was on TV Land and was pleased I still enjoyed it as much now as I did when I was watching it for the first time back in 1975.
