Finding out that their husbands are not just work partners, but have also been romantically involved for the last twenty years, two women with an already strained relationship try to cope with the circumstances together.
Lifelong best friends Alexa and Katie are eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school. The pals confront a crisis that leaves them feeling like outsiders at a time when what seems to matter most is fitting in.
A coming-of-age story about four bright, street-savvy friends navigating their way through high school in the gritty inner city of South Central Los Angeles. Dealing with the danger of getting their friend out of a gang and friends turning into romance, danger is constant.
Being a Norman Lear sitcom; there were a lot of shock moments on the original incarnation show; which aired from 1975-1984; and starred Bonnie Franklin. The scenes in this original episode shocked people's sensibilities in 1975; and definitely pushed the envelope. Some of those scenes; when you watch them today, are still pretty; if not more; shocking. There was plot on one of the episodes that involved Ann getting a prostitute for one of her clients. There was another episode that had both Ann and Alex's school paddling him; giving him corporal punishment; for ditching class. There was another episode that had Julie as a 17-year old; running away with her 40 year old boyfriend. None of these episodes would have been made today. Indeed, the 2017 reboot; while getting rave reviews from the critics; has few if any shock moments in it. It seems like Lear has mellowed in his older age; and is more into educating people about new experiences; than shock-for-shock dramas. See more »
In the episodes' intro, she is wearing what appears to be a "Coast Guard Combat Action" ribbon with her Army ribbons. The CG Combat Action medal is awarded to the Navy, USMC and Coast Guard personnel only. See more »
I started watching this show because I was bored and wanted to just have something on TV while I worked and found myself overcome with emotions. This show is amazing and I can't wait until the next season debuts. It kept me laughing, thinking, and even crying. It is a great series and the only negative thing I have to say is that there weren't enough episodes. Netflix could help me out a lot by adding 26 episodes a season instead of their typical 13. I watched the entire serious in a few short hours and now want to make sure that this show continues. In all honesty this show was more intriguing to me than many other Netflix sitcoms as well as some other shows like George Lopez.
Keep up the great work Netflix!!!
