Default This Show Went DOWNHILL When They Tried to "80's" It Up

I guess it was a ploy to try to get more viewers, but I absolutely hated when they did that.

What do you mean by that? If you're meaning the move to NYC and the cast changes?

The theme music, the hair, the clothes, it all seemed forced.

Like some said in another thread--too much changes in order to make it into a FOL type show. I loved Donelly Rhodes and Patricia Richardson from the short first season.

Yeah, they wanted to spike the ratings, but I think what they really did was alienate them.
