The only episode of Flo that was somewhat watchable was the one when Mel from Alice made a guest appearance.

Wow, I am surprised that Linda Lavin made a guest appearence on her show; I heard that Lavin was quite the bitch on the set of Alice, and treated the other actors poorly

No Linda Lavin didn't make a guest apperance on Flo, it was Vic Tayback, the guy who played Mel.

What are you talking about? Flo should have won a ton of Emmys. You'd have to be blind not to realize that.

Yeah the character FLO was entertaining on Alice not on her own show. On her own show, she only said-"kiss my grits" once and that is when Mel from Alice made a guest apperance.

Quite true because Linda was upset over all the attention Flo got and it was stated that Polly Holliday was the star. Diane Ladd, Belle, had the same problem with Linda Lavin as well. From what I understand Linda Lavin was a difficult actress to deal with on Alice. She was the star and projected that it was her show. Look at the price of that. Alice was never the same after Polly Holliday left. The Flo years on the show were priceless and LOL funny.

That's the problem with spinning off - you take a perfectly good show and strip it of its players. Alice proved that the whole was better than the sum of its parts.

Good thing we never got to see Vera.

Not so. I have four ep's of "Flo", and she says it four times total, in three of them. I loved the episodes "No Men's Land" and "Welcome To The Club"...they were excellent! Much funnier than the ep with Mel...although I like that one better now, that I've seen it a couple of times. The Christams ep wasn't very good, but it was supposed to be more "dramatic" and "touching".

I'd like to see more.

I just can;t understand who else she would say Kiss My Grits to on FLO when the phrase originated from ALICE. Now it was ok for her to say it to MEL but to other cast members?. Makes no sense
