Funny as hell!

Just like all the Norman Lear shows this one really reflects the times in the funniest way. Lovable characters, serious issues, funny as hell!

Out Dated but fun to watch given current standards.
Verified purchase
Wow! This show is so offensive given current standards. It is only funny because it’s so out dated, I thought this show was funny when I was a young girl but now I think it’s creepy, especially the apartment manager Dwayne.

A Pioneering Series
Verified purchase
A classic gem back when the networks made good TV, not the reality crap they shlep out now. As a kid I was in love with Bonnie Franklin. The mother I wish I had.

PLEASE PUT OUT THE OTHER SEASONS!!!
Verified purchase
If you're hooked on the exceptional Netflix reboot, give the original a try. Revolutionary for the times (a single mother raising two kids on her own), ODAAT is funny, silly, and keeping you hooked from week to week. The quality and the issue-based hilarity is the string that binds the old and at the new version. Unfortunately, future seasons aren't available yet so .... PLEASE PUT OUT THE OTHER SEASONS!!!
