Not if you believe what she says now and how she was just pretending to like guys for 60 years.

Hmmm...maybe. But I've read other places where their on-screen chemistry was off the charts. I guess if one were to watch the episodes today, knowing how ugly their off-screen relationship became, the chemistry on-screen would take a back seat. I know I'm not really making sense, but I hope you all get the gist of what I'm trying to say.

Regardless of her sexual orientation, Meredith wouldn't have married the guy if she didn't have some very positive feelings for him at the time...! That's how I look at it -- it doesn't matter if she were gay, bisexual, etc., she could still be in a loving relationship. And we can't just apply her side to this -- David most likely was very turned on at times, and certainly that would come through!

Have any of you read Meredith's book? I read it with an open mind, knowing that she and David Birney are at odds about exactly what happened. It really is an interesting read - definitely worth reading and has lots of great photos!!!

How many seasons would BLB have ran for if not for the hate mail and complaints from the religious groups?

Well it was in the top 5 when it was canceled. It probably could have ran for 6 or 7 years at least,

To this day, BLB remains the highest rated show that was cancelled. The Andy Griffith Show was #1 in its final season, but Andy Griffith had already planned to leave, so it wasn't cancelled, just revamped into Mayberry, R.F.D. with a new star but some members of the supporting cast remaining.

That series sounds really good! Hopefully one day it'll be on DVD and I can check it out!

If it ever does get the DVD treatment, I have to wonder if either Meredith or David would participate (commentaries, featurettes, etc.). If so, I'm sure all that stuff would be filmed separately.

I remember watching the show when it first aired. It was a cute show. Someone mentioned Shout! earlier. Maybe they'll release it one day. If I had to bet $ I'd bet on them. They've been wonderful about releasing shows I never thought would see the light of day again. In the meantime, there are the generous souls who post some eps on You Tube.

This is only my opinion, but I watched Bridget Loves Bernie and I thought it was just O.K. Nothing nearly as funny as the shows it was sandwiched between, and to me, a pale imitation of the far funnier Love on a Rooftop from about five years prior. The Jewish parents were more grating than funny, and I found Audra Lindley to be more irritating (if that's possible) here than on Three's Company or The Ropers. Nor did I detect the same chemistry between the leads as I did on Rooftop. Sony can keep it.

I see why this show was cancelled. In just the first episode there were numerous jokes about jews and one joke about Democrats. I guess a show like this was just too controversial to stay on at the time

I believe it was on right after All in the Family, so how could it be too controversial? Except specifically-- religious leaders both Catholic and Jewish objected to the inner-faith marriage.
