Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this iconic '60s sitcom was the first to cast a young, single, independent woman as the main character ... but she didn't exactly embody the pure feminist movement. Though Ann leaves her parents' home to pursue her dreams in the big city, she's unable to separate herself from their more-traditional expectations for her, and she sometimes lets her feelings for them override her personal ambition. Laughs usually revolve around mishaps at her many odd jobs, so the mild subject matter invites family viewing. But kids may need some timely background to appreciate why this show was groundbreaking for its time -- and even then they'll probably find the whole '60s-era package fairly hokey.
Very mild innuendoes are rare, and quick smooches are likewise infrequent. Ann Marie is a young, single woman who dates.
The main character is a young, independent, single woman trying to make it on her own in the big city at a time when men dominated nearly every workplace (the premise made the sitcom groundbreaking when it first aired in the '60s). Her parents often question her decisions, and while she strives to please them, her father in particular remains harshly skeptical of her choices.
