Which is your favorite season?
Season 1 with the girls in school,living with their father,and visited by Patricia Richardson...
or Season 2 with the girls in college...living with Aunt Margo,and those two "funny boys"?
Frankly,in my book there is no comparison.Season 1 hands down.Particularly the last 3 episodes of season 1.They focused on the girls at school,with classmates,and Kate was wilder than ever.
I was glad when the show returned,but I was less than pleased with the situation they put them in,and the co stars they had to work with.Mr Arreccia? Boring,and dull.Allison's classmate? Phoney accent(she would later star in "The Heat of the Night"). The "funny boys"? Not so funny.Aunt Margo? She should have stuck with playing Mrs Barney Miller (Barbara Barrie).
The strange thing is,with Double Trouble being teamed up with Facts of Life,ratings at the very end (the last couple airings)were very excellent.Any network looking for a show to keep would have had to look no further than DT,however,by this time,NBC had already decided to pull the shows plug.I bet there was some talk internally that they had pulled the show prematurely,while it was getting good viewership...yet,those in power had decided already the girls would not return.
