Unfortunately, the last season is set in 1967 since the opening credits feature a New Year's Eve banner that states "1967". Per Penny Marshall's autobiography, one of the bigger issues about the move (she wanted the girls to move to NYC, alone) was the 5 year time jump between season 5 and 6. The time jump is also referenced in the S6 episode "Love Out the Window" when they mentioned Laverne's almost-fiance who died in S5--and they said it was five years earlier.

"Awesome" ends in "Me".


I think not.
