LOL

Now that is funny since the show didn't last longer than one season. So maybe it had a high premiere because these were two popular characters, but dropped off quickly after that...LOL

Well, when JLC first aired in the spring of 1982, its competition was mostly reruns - and it had a plum timeslot right after Happy Days. Then, when it returned in the fall, and on a different night, the ratings took a swandive and never recovered. Thus, Erin Moran, Scott Baio and Al Molinaro returned to Happy Days the second the show was cancelled.

I never like the "Oh I'm just being a jerk to you because I really love you" shtik, and that's what it always seemed like he was doing with Joanie.
I Agree he was out of place with the hair and how he dressed. But i didn't not like character ,really no opinion either,some of the shows based around him i liked and some i didn't . But that's the same with the other characters some shows that revolved around them i liked and some i didn't with Richie & Fonzie

As far as them as a couple, i didn't mind them and i was OK with the show Joanie Loves Chachi. Wish i had them all on DVD, i have a small handful of them. As far as not like certain shows,i still have every show on DVD i love the show and not liking some episodes . i will still watch those when watching a season

I loved them together as a couple. As for the spinoff, it was not great but it was not so bad either. It was growing on me.

I liked them together, and I liked the show. It had its good points and its bad points. But I wish it would've lasted longer than it did.

Yeah maybe. But I was a teenager when it was on originally so I might feel differently about seeing it now. Who knows. But at the time I liked it.

Did Ron Howard appear as a guest? Or was it just Fonzie and Mr. and Mrs C?

I was a big Happy Days fan and I think the number one mistake they made was continuing the show without Ron Howard. But to me the next worse mistake they made was Chachi. I hated him and hated the annoying cloying Scott Baio. I never watched Joanie Loves Chachi and to this day if I see Scott Baio being interviewed I change the channel.

I agree. They should have given HD a proper send off after Ron Howard and Don Most left the show. The last years of HD were just sad to watch.

Scott Baio was decent as a child actor, but the character of Chachi was a one trick pony at best. There was also zero chemistry between Scott Baio and Erin Moran which was surprising since they were banging in real life.

I think one of the many issues with JLC was the fact that society as a whole was outgrowing the Marshall-verse. L&S ran out of steam a year before HD ended, and M&M had been long gone. It was the end of an era.

Only Scott Baio & Erin Moran returned to Happy Days as regulars after their spinoff was cancelled, but Al was apparently left back in Chicago with Louisa, at least until the finale, where he played both Al and his twin, Father Delvecchio, who married Joanie & Chachi. I found it interesting that Scott Baio was billed above Erin Moran in the last season, as she was with the show from the beginning and had always been billed above him before.
