I'm so glad she was shot down on that. Location changes tend to be bad for shows to begin with, but dropping the rest of the cast too?
I know Laverne & Shirley were the stars, but after five seasons of getting to know and love Lenny and Squiggy (and Carmine, Frank, and Edna), to have them dumped and just expect us to get used to (presumably) a new supporting cast would be a bit much on top of the move.
The fact that the cast stayed intact is the only reason I don't write off the California years completely.
Getting rid of my fave characters is the quickest way to get me to stop watching a show.
