Cancelled (?) and barely remembered...but it was good!
This short season must have been cancelled mid-way through its first season presumably, due to there being only thirteen episodes shown. Are there more? Anyhow, I remember it as a being a good show, and of the style of sitcoms of its time - probably the production values looking like late Diff'rent Strokes (shot on video) or perhaps even shot on film and edited on tape (and the poor NTSC edit/telecine quality of the time). I guess this will remain 'lost in oblivion' due to the lack of episodes (so no syndication value), but I would welcome a DVD box set - but due to even the 'classic' Mary Tyler Moore Show struggling to get further DVD releases, it somehow seems unlikely. Good luck with hunting it down, it is worth the effort.
