A Show that was too good to get canceled!
2 September 2008 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

I remember this show vaguely but I remember it fondly because I liked it not just because of the hit song or the film because I never really saw the film itself. I remember the series as funny and wickedly charming with Barbara Eden in the leading role. I remember Fannie Flagg too as her best friend. It was about a woman who was somebody that deemed inappropriate in Harvey Valley. When she gets involved with Harper Valley P.T.A., they are in for a shock. She is no bubble-headed bimbo as they liked to think of her. She has a brain and the guts to take the snobs of Harper Valley head on. Maybe the show was a little less Hollywood and New York and more American because I remember it was mostly shot outside and without a laugh-track. I hope they bring it out on DVD because I would like to revisit who I considered to be old friends. It was a good show that could have lasted more than one season.
