Does anyone recall the name of an unusual soap opera from about 30 years ago (in the 1970s), that had a wife-beater husband and the wife reminds me of Diane Keaton or Lily Tomlin, for some reason.

I think it was around the time of 'Dark Shadows', and
'All in the Family'.

humano emailed this to me, and I posted elsewhere--I'll see what is there, but it is

'Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman', with Louis Lasser.

Oh man, what I wouldn't give to see Dick Van Patten wailing on those people. They could have kept Mark Hamill with his beat up face, would have worked perfectly.

God, there were actually *two* spin-offs of that show, with the other being "The Ropers." And you're referring to "Three's a Crowd." Yikes, that I remember these both...


Did you know that Billy Crystal auditioned for the role of Jack Tripper?

Okay, which is better:

Three's Company or the British original?
The Ropers or the British original, um, equivalent?
