My generation remembers (and adores) Donna PesCOW for her mom roles on such hits as "Out of This World" and "Even Stevens" (co-starring Emmy Award-winning actor, Shia LaBeouf). I've yet to even see proof that a show called "Angie" even existed!
Definitely existed. I watched as a child. She was a waitress with doctor husband....does a
nyone else remember?
I watched it too. She was riding high post Night Fever.
Not only did it exist, I took the theme song to No. 18 on the charts back in '79!
And Raymond's mother was the mom here too -- she ran a newsstand and shocked the doctor's snooty Dad with a discourse on finance. He looked at her in amazement and she waved a Forbes, informing him that she could read.
No r1, the OP is onto something. The show is just an urban myth, you have false memories of a show that never actually existed.
Robert Hays played her boyfriend and Debralee Scott was Angie's kid sister Marie.
Robert Hayes was hot as fuck to. Like another(HODA) sitcom they killed it by marrying them too soon. It really was a cute show. Nothing historical but cute.
In modern American comedy, much merriment comes from class or ethnic differences. In Angie, it was about moneyed Philadelphia WASPs vs working class Italian Catholics.
A brief review of most sit-coms shows these difference were and continue to be a staple, although lately, not so much.
" I HAVE A BOOB JOB ON MY BACK "
It wasn't a bad little show...I was pretty young but remember sort of liking it.
Her best role was as dyke Lynn on All My Children. I still remember my mother's pearl-clutching gasp when Devon told Lynn she wanted to munch her carpet.
R7 WHAT? That bitch Hoda had her own sitcom? Frank! Cody! Cassidy! Mama's gonna need a whole lotta Chardonnay!
Donna Pescow played the first lesbian on National TV
Donna was also know as a soap actress. And her famous rubber scene in Saturday Night Fever.And the scene where the guys took turns screwing her in the back set!
Angie was birthed from Saturday Night Fever like other shows like Makin' It and Joe and Valerie. It was the best of the bunch to be honest. Not that there was anything great about that genre to begin with anyway.
What is Bob Hays' story. I always thought he was family, but apparently he married (late) and fathered a kid or two, did he not?
Think again, r12. I was munching Katherine's whiskey-stained carpet long before you came along and began fucking Devon.
THE Kay Heberle as Joanne Curtis, Y&R, 1977
The show was funny at first, and marrying the lead characters might have been a mistake, but I think the writing probably would've fizzled out anyway. The premise was only funny for a short period, and then the writers weren't talented enough to keep it afloat.
