On Maude it would have been refreshing to see Maude do say or think something out of character--something reactionary for example. And yes, the other characters could be funny too-esp. Arthur--when he and Maudie went at it.

Some of the Episode Ideas were just AWFUL. Like why have Maude and Arthur in ONE ROOM the entire episode?-lol It was a ep in 74/75
