Soleil Moon Frye,
Valerie Hogan is what you call "super-mom." Valerie's husband, Michael is an airline pilot, so the job of raising their three boys is left mostly to Valerie. There's girl-hungry David, Wille who's always getting into trouble, and brainy Mark. Mark and Wille are fraternal twins. Each week, Valerie encounters different experiences of what it is like to be a mother to three boys.Written by
I know that the Hogan's, and Valerie before it, didn't represent state of the art comedy, being utterly formulaic and looking like the very template for family sitcoms, but darn it, it was nice. The family was nice, the house was nice, the plots were nice. Nice, warm, fuzzy, safe family viewing. Sometimes I want hard-edged, risky comedy, but sometimes I just wanna watch TV safe in the knowledge that every episode will have a group-hug type ending. It's the perfect remedy if you're ever feeling a bit oppressed by all the stuff that's going on in the world right now. The comedy is still nice enough, but boy have the clothes and hairstyles dated!
I have a bunch of episodes on tape but would love to get more.
