I've never seen it but I'm sure it's not bad at all. Considering how much I like Diff'rent Strokes and Facts of Life, I would probably like Hello Larry as well. The crossovers with Diff'rent Strokes were good although I would like to see a regular episode of Hello Larry so I can really get a feel for it.

I've never seen Mork and Mindy so I can't speak on that one although I will see it once Antenna TV adds it. I'm certainly sure Hello Larry is much better than Barney Miller. I tried to watch that a few times on Antenna TV but I found it incredibly boring and just really couldn't get into it.

Hey! I'll bet you never knew Hello, Larry was the last project on which Jay Sommers and Dick Chevillat worked together. They either wrote the scripts or "punched up" scripts written by others as story editors.

That would be...

the same Jay Sommers and Dick Chevillat who together wrote almost every episode of

Green Acres.

Mmmhmm.

Why didn't you like Barney Miller? I can understand not liking those other shows as much as Hello Larry.

Little too serious for me. The police comedy I like now called Brooklyn Nine Nine is a lot more funny and nowhere near as serious as barney miller

It's like the show didn't know if it wanted to be a dramedy or a comedy

I understand what you're saying. I thought the comedy was always clever on Barney Miller, so I was never really annoyed with the serious moments.

It's different with a show like Taxi, where I thought the drama was too heavy-handed over the comedy. Barney Miller balanced it better.

I think I like Hello Larry because they are connected to Different Strokes and they appeared on there 3 times

Barney Miller to me was like M*A*S*H in that it mixed the comedy with some drama. Great show. I think they knew what they were doing and what they wanted to convey.

Because it was boring! Plain and simple.

Boring writing!
Boring acting!
Boring set design!
Boring theme song!!

No personality to it.
And let's face it..MacLean Stevenson was not meant to be in a lead role of a series.

The funny thing is that Hello, Larry was in some respects, a proto-version of Frasier in that it was an NBC sitcom set in the Pacific Northwest about a talk radio show host.
