One of my favorite shows when I was growing up (although some—quite a few, actually—would argue I still haven’t grown up).

The show aired in 1979 and 1980 and starred Donna Pescow, from the movie “Saturday Night Fever” as Angie, and Robert Hays, who would later go on to star in the “Airplane” movies, as her husband, Brad. (What a great name that is. OK, so I’m a little biased.)

Angie marries the wealthy Brad and, being from a middle-class Italian family, tries to adjust to the new lifestyle. Among the cast were the late Debralee Scott (who was often seen on the game show “Match Game”) and Doris Roberts, who portrayed Angie’s mother and would later go on to star as Ray Barone’s meddling mother, Marie, in the hit show, “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

I loved the show’s intro song. (What can I say, I was around 12 or 13 at the time).
