Flashback Friday- Kate & Allie (1984-1989)

Television is often a reflection of the world that goes beyond the small screen.

In 1984, television audiences were introduced to Kate & Allie.

Kate McArdle (Susan Saint James) and Allie Lowell (Jane Curtin) are best friends. Both are newly divorced and raising their children by themselves.  They decide to combine households and live together with their children.

Lasting five seasons, Kate & Allie represented not only a new era in television, but the changes in overall society. What I like about this show is that the title characters are strong, capable women who instead of indulging in a pity party, use lemons to make lemonade.

I recommend it.
