The year is 1975. Ann Romano, a recent divorcee, and her two teenage daughters (MacKenzie Phillips as Julie, and Valerie Bertinelli as Barbara) move from their spacious home into a small apartment in Indianapolis, IN. The apartment super is Schneider, played by Pat Harrington, a lecherous married guy who attempts to date all the single females. Ann (Bonnie Franklin) has a boyfriend, and spends time looking for a good job. For this era, the divorced mom with kids was a new idea in TV. The girls have realistic problems (dating rules, money woes, etc.) and the divorced mom struggles to make wise decisions. There are lots of laughs (despite the "bad economy" jokes), and the clothing styles and pop culture references are fun to history buffs. A great way to show your kids what life was like in the 70s! Lots of entertainment! You will want to view them repeatedly.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
