    I am 40 yrs of age and I never seen this show as a kid. One day, when i was about 33, i ran across this show on a cable channel and the clothes she wore were so cute, adorable and trendy, I was HOOKED! I love Ann's personality as well but they kept her looking fashion forward and I look forward to seeing the styles come back soon!

    My favorite series of all time!Once you watch it and Ann Marie gets you in her clutches she has you forever-I happened to watch it first run from '66 thru'71-- After the first episode,Marlo Thomas as "That Girl" became a TV fixture for me.Never has there been a lovelier,classier,more charismatically charming leading lady on comedy television-Ted Bessell was the perfect leading man for her as boyfriend Don Hollinger-Ted played his character with warmth depth thoughfulness and sensitivity. Miss Thomas and Mr Bessell were truly a perfectly cast couple!The supporting cast was outstanding and the stories were different enough each week[except for the occasional 2 parters] that the show stayed fresh thru 5 seasons.The theme song is classic,the clothes were stylish & elegant,and the acting and writing was first rate- In a time of so many great network shows,this comedy held its own. 10 stars!moreless

    This show was on well before I was born but I love it. Its funny. Ann is always getting her self in crazy messes, while Donald is so level headed. Anns dad is every girls dad and always mess understand things. I just watch the 2 season and It was great. I am ready for the other 3 season to come out. when me girls grow up I hope they enjoy That girl as much as I do. It is a clean show with lots of laughs. A great one to watch it the pant one where Dons pants get left at Anns and his mom finds them I laughed so much.moreless
  • Fabulous and witty, "That Girl" is a show all girls should see before they grow up and go off into the world. Marlo Thomas portrays one aspect of a Liberated young woman, without degrading femininity or compromising comfort. She opened peoples'moreless

    "That Girl" was one of those shows I had heard about, but never got to see for myself. My mother loved it as teen, on re-runs in the 70's, and other adults praise it as one the important classics of T.V. history. Thanks to TV-Land, this 17-year-old got a chance to see and be mesmerized by this charming pre-quel to Women's Liberation. Ann Marie conveys the difficult challenge for young women to manage their life and dreams in a man's world. Not trying to be isolated by her independence she capitalizes on her friendships; she's not dependent, but rather loving and understanding of the importance of having support aswell as giving support herself. This show showed the possibility of harmony between men and women, change and peace, freedom and fun. erhaps the show is a fantasy, but I think it is more of a dream Ann Marie and we could make a reality.moreless
  • That Girl starring Marlo Thomas was a classic television show in the sixties that paved the way for the Mary Tyler Moore Show years later.

    I was ten years old when That Girl aired on tv. I am a bit confused how a television show can last five years yet the television show never cracked the Nielsen top thirty charts. I remember begging my Father to take me to see the Marlo Thomas movie \\\"Jenny\\\". I didn\\\'t even understand that movie and my Father had to explain it to me on the way home. Does anyone know if they are showing any of the repeats from That Girl on television today? I tried checking nick at nite and have never seen it. It was a simpler time back then and would love to be able to see it again.moreless
