Ok John, you had to mention Mary Tyler Moore, so I have to mention, I watched the Dick Van Dyke show as a kid, because of her, huge crush, wooo weeeee, she was a dream to me!!!
I remember the last show of Gilligan's island, sort of. I just remember how sad we were when it was ending. We used to get off the bus and go to Grandma's and watch Gilligan's Island and Speedracer everyday!! Those were the days.
I really miss Hill Street Blues, by far one of the best shows ever made, but my best and favorite, never to be duplicated, not even close, Columbo. Peter Faulk is Columbo!! Boy, he sure was good in the In Law's though with Alan Arkin.
As a rule though, I don't like endings, I want my favorite shows to go on and on, so its hard to say I liked that ending, as a rule.
