  • Nancy finds her husband in bed with one of her friends, and it is later revealed that something similar had happened to Kate twenty years earlier.

    9.0
    I did not start watching the series until MB Birney became Nancy, so I had never seen this episode. I was surprised at just how ground-breaking it was. People didn\'t talk much about infidelity back then, let alone when dealing with major characters.



    Then to throw in Buddy overhearing her mother say she did not really want her was a total shock. The scene where Kate and Buddy finally talk about it was great. Not your typical 70\'s pablum.



    Watching this epidsode you would think that the cast had been together for years, not that this was the pilot episode.



    I give it two snaps up, with a twist.
