Been watching a LOT of this classic, old-school show of late. I'm of the age that it was going off of the air as I was heading into my teens, but I remember what a hit it was then.
Dated? In some ways, yes, but some stellar writing, some hilarious comedy, over two hundred episodes, and a true slice of life that has not been seen on TV since. I wish we still lived in such a straightforward world, where you knew where you stood, hard work mattered, and you could curl up in an afghan (or some acid-wash denim and flannel) at day's end against the idiots of the world.
This show was a classic, and it's still as relevant and timely as ever. Am I the only one in love with this gem?
