The Only Reason I Cared About This Show Was Ken Auletta's Great Book on the TV Industry, THREE BLIND MICE
22 August 2015 | by asrexproductionsSee all my reviews

*sigh* The only thing I want to respond to are the comments about why this show was cancelled, that pretty much ILLUSTRATE why this show was cancelled.

As Ken Auletta explained in his book THREE BLIND MICE, Aaron Spelling pitched this show (from memory, so apologies if I botch this quote)as "student nurses sharing a house in California and the air conditioning doesn't work." As the people who had advertisers pull their support for this show (actual nurses) pointed out, the nursing was barely a part of this show (whose episodes you can all find on YouTube, perverts) pointed out, it was pretty nurses in various states of undress sharing what was essentially a sorority house, with Pleshette as "Mrs. Garret" to these girls. At a time when networks were trying shows like "St. Elsewhere," "LA Law," and "Hill Street Blues," this throwback to Spelling's jiggle era just looked silly. Comparing it to "Grey's Anatomy" is insulting, IMO, but then, I find the idea of couching softcore porn in a pre-internet age pathetic, but typical of the latter part of Spelling's career. The saddest part is, by today's standards, it's not even good at that (in other words, it's not even very sexy). Plots are juvenile, sensationalist at times, and melodramatic. The fact that people still think this was a great show pretty much illustrates how Donald Trump can do so well as a Presidential candidate.
