  • Mrs Garret learning photorogphy from Molly? No, it's the fight for number one between Sue Ann and Cindy to win the trophy in track for Eastland! What started out as the two who was best of friends,now they was fighting mad.moreless

    Proberly the best of the "Too Many Girls" episodes. I guess I like this one due to the fact, that it was better written than most of the earlier episodes. I found charm in the early episodes,maybe not the best considering what was to become of the series. But this one wasn't about Blair, it was more about the secondary charecters, Sue Ann (who was about as used as Blair) and tomboy Cindy who wasn't used as much. While. true, too many girls,most of the other girls just background with one to three lines, it's still a classic in my book and it's one of my favorite episodes.moreless
  • Too many girls=no solid story.

    2.1
    The fact that you had 7 girls at the helm of this show made for poor storylines because it was hard to involve all of them week after week. Therefore we always see Nancy on the phone with Roger, Molly just giving silly advice about women's lib. It was a wise choice to fire the writing staff and the other 4 girls and once they did that the show became something. This episode has Sue Weaver at the center of attention but she isn't very funny and it's all of the other characters are dancing around her world, and there is no B story to support other characters. This is a bottom of the barrel episode.moreless
