The most recent episode of Hot in Cleveland was a surreal trip back the 1970s with Cloris Leachman, Mary Tyler Moore and Valerie Harper. I felt like I was looking at the CBS lineup from the early 1970’s. With the matriarch of the group Betty White it was a reunion unlike any other seen on the TV Land Network. The Mary Tyler Moore show was a groundbreaking show for women and women’s issues. This was the first show to have a powerful independent woman making her way without a husband or help from a father. Looking back, this was a golden age of television with quality characters and story lines that kept us coming back week in and week out. This was the period before cable and the big three networks dominated what we watched but provided some real quality.
So if you want to take a walk down memory lane check out this episode on demand or at TV Land.
