Is coming to DVD:

I loved this show.

I think the cover art for it is pretty cool.

Men in Phoenix must have been very desperate in the 70s if Flo was considered a sex symbol.
Posted by MotleyRulz (Member # 3598) on :
I agree Sam. Flo would look appealing if your only other choice was a cactus. It looks like the DVD is only going to be one of those favorite episodes DVDs vs. a whole season. They did the same thing with The Beverly Hillbillies...
Posted by ISIS (Member # 1780) on :
Hey something is better than nothing (I am talking about the DVD not Flo- [Razz] )

To a bunch of middle aged men who can't get a date...Flo probably is their dream woman, funny how you 2 don't see it.
Posted by Nice Guy Sammy_Hain (Member # 3150) on :
I think the priesthood would be a better option. Actually Vera would be a better date option. Granted she's a little dingy but has more substance than Flo.
Posted by ISIS (Member # 1780) on :
Yeah...maybe so..I can picture you and her at the Prom. [Wink] [Razz] [Big Grin]
Posted by Nice Guy Sammy_Hain (Member # 3150) on :
I'd get kicked out of the prom for bringing my own beverage. just hope she has a big backseat in her car or there's always the Valley Sheraton.
Posted by ISIS (Member # 1780) on :
Vera at the Valley...Sammy at the Sheraton...It sounds like a movie in the making. [Big Grin]
Posted by MotleyRulz (Member # 3598) on :
There isn't enough beer, liquor, illegal moonshine, etc... to ever get desperate enough for Flo. It's funny how you do see it Isis [Razz]
Posted by mamamiasweetpeaches (Member # 1715) on :
I love Flo! But then again I'm a woman. I think Her sass makes up for what she's missing aesthetically.
I really have to add ALICE to my website cuz I loved that show when I was a kid in a never-miss-an-episode sort of a way. My Mom and me would be like "ALICE is on tonight!"
I watched re-runs of it on cable about ten years ago and still found myself laughing so I guess it has aged well.
The best episodes are the Flo ones though.
Does anyone remember Flo's spin off show? I dont think I ever saw it.
Posted by ISIS (Member # 1780) on :
Oh I don't see it either...I just figured out of anybody that would, that you and Sam would be the 2 that thought she was hot. [Confused]
Posted by ISIS (Member # 1780) on :
Mamamia-I agree about her sassiness...that's part of why I loved the show, her fighting with Mel, they were a perfect couple. Haha.
Posted by cindymancini (Member # 679) on :
Mel was awesome! He was always on the verge of exploding and it was hilarious when he did! He was great in Loverboy, walking around in that green jumpsuit with a crowbar in his hand! Classic!
Posted by Nice Guy Sammy_Hain (Member # 3150) on :
I liked him in Loverboy too, his background vocals on Working For The Weekend were awesome and his guitar playing wasn't too shabby either.

DeltaDeadDawn-Those are words to live by...infact I might start using them when I need to talk to Motley and Noms. [Big Grin] [Wink] [Razz]

Lemme see...Arizona desert town...truck stop diner...1970's...customers are usually blue-collar types or middle-aged guys...sassy-talking woman...

I'm not saying that Flo would've been a sex symbol, but I could see how some of the diner's customers would've been attracted to Flo.

And personally, I thought Diane Ladd played Flo better in the original movie version than Polly Halliday. (Ironically, when Polly left the show for her own spin-off "Flo", Ladd joined the "Alice" TV cast in 1980)

But I wonder why hasn't Linda Lavin (who played Alice) never had another success after this show?
