Kate & Allie hits DVD very soon. I have pleasant memories of this series, except for the final season when it was handed off to new producers. Within the format of a general sweet sitcom they did some stuff that seemed not so safe at the time – I’m not talking vast radical material, but nice moments. Also some fine performances (including some first-time-I-saw-her supporting work by Wendie Malick, although as a buttoned-up strait-laced character in contrast to her Just Shoot Me work.) And some really clumsy attempts to hide the pregnancy of one of the leads.
