I had heard of the short-lived \"Gidget\" all my life, and assumed it ran for a single season for good reason . . . . .but that assumption was wrong! This series is brilliant! Sally Field and Don Porter have excellent chemistry, and share many touching scenes. Sally Field gives the character unbridled energy. This show packed as much heart, comedy, and character development in 30 short minutes as possible. William Asher\'s direction (I Love Lucy, Bewitched) grounds this show in reality.
Pete Duel\'s character is also of note. Sexy but nerdy at the same time! Hopefully, this series will be out on DVD soon. It\'s a shame it had such a short run, as it is superior to any other Fields\' sitcom.
