The show is worth a look at least for the nostalgia value, it represents the 1972-73 era well.

The reaction of Audra Lindley to her daughter's boyfriend possibly being black is cringe-inducing, and just to top it all off, they cribbed a line from the Love on a Rooftop pilot when David Birney says: "You're rich!" Baxter counters with: "You make it sound like some sort of disease". Line for line. If this didn't make it following All In The Family, it's possibly because it isn't funny? If this got better ratings than Mary Tyler Moore it could be that people who started to watch this following Family switched channels midway through. Only Jerry Fielding's nice theme music comes through unscathed. A dreadful show.
Dreadful? I love the show. One of my favorites of all-time. Very funny, great leads with great chemistry. The black joke was hysterical. I guess you aren't old enough to remember when the world was normal and everything under the sun wasn't looked at as acceptable. Now if people actually do date their own kind, its abnormal.

Watched the first 2 episodes. The show holds up well, is very funny. I find it interesting that people are so brainwashed by modern TV, where nobody looks at anything as abnormal and they accept everything (other than Tim Allen's character on Last Man Standing). People believe that's how the world is when it isn't that way. At least BLB shows how people react realistically to different cultures. Too bad the religious groups shut it down. Plus, how hot was the young, heterosexual Meredith Baxter?

I like both the mothers, Sophie Steinberg and Amy Fitzgerald, and Uncle Moe. They're all very comical!

Screen Gems specialized in young couples comedies. I would love to see them continue in this vein with Love on a Rooftop, Occasional Wife, Nancy, The Good Life, The Paul Lynde Show, Temperature Rising, Second Hundred Years, Farmer's Daughter. Love all of those shows.

I never seen this show & don't plan on buying it (even though I do like David Birney) but it gives me hope for the superior LOVE ON A ROOFTOP being released soon.

I'm always happy to hear when a new show rolls out on DVD because I know how much it means to fans of the show. I remember how ecstatic I was when Room 222 and The Paper Chase came out. So BLB fans, enjoy! I'm tempted to get this myself but have waay to many DVDs already (I live in a small apartment.). Like I said in an earlier post, this show really did have it moments of charm.

(I've had to really discipline myself not to buy anymore or at least very rarely. I did break down & get S#3 of Hot In Cleveland - I don't have cable and am gaga over Betty White)
