Default I saw it....

...and the entire cast was quite good, even if the scripts mostly weren't. That's why Richard Masur, Charlotte Rae and James Cromwell later became part of more successful series...and Conchata Ferrell can still be seen on "TWO AND A HALF MEN" (every time she opens her mouth, she gets a laugh!).

Default Hot L Baltimore

I was in my early twenties when Hot L Baltimore was on. I LOVED it! Thought it bode a quality cast, most of which have endured the test of time, and while the scripts could have been better, I think it at a lot to offer and could have been further developed if given a chance. The subject matter was just too racy for its time. People were still having trouble with All In The Family and Maude with subjects like race and abortion. To ad a show about a seedy hotel with sweet, good-hearted prostitutes and folks at the lower end of the financial caste system was too much for the still very uptight environment in which we lived -- pushing the envelope too far. It might stand a better chance now on a cable channel -- Lifetime, Showtime, etc.. I thought it was an excellent character study with much potential and was sorry to see it go. And someone else was right.... Rockford Files, even in reruns, was just too much of a juggernaut to face for this sweet, smart, funny sitcom. Really wish I could find episodes somewhere, but so far, no luck.
Also, I've been trying to think of who played the brunette (hispanic) prostitute... I thought it was the woman who went on to play Miss Patty the dance teacher on Gilmore Girls, but now I'm not so sure. Can't even find a decent cast photo on line. Anyone have anything to offer?
