  • This is the series opener. It introduces us to Patty and Cathy Lane, and their family. Unlike the first season closer flashback sequence, this pilot features Mark Miller as Martin and Charles Herbert as Ross. Hijinx begin early as Cathy arrives!moreless

    The story was well developed, and most of the acting was solid. Mark Miller, who played Martin, and Charles Herbert, who played Ross, however, were a bit out of synch with the rest of the cast. Apparently ABC thought so as well, because both actors were replaced for the first episode. The story itself is simple, but charming. It clearly demonstrates how easily things are assumed based on appearances. Even this early, you can see the distinct personalities that define both Cathy and Patty.moreless
