This 1st season of "That Girl" brings back memories of the mid to late 1960's for me growing up as a kid in NYC on Manhattan's LES as the main character "Ann Marie" lives in 1960's Manhattan with the occasional outside on location shots which is rare for a sitcom. Love seeing the old familiar NYC street sights with the 1960's vehicles. My much older sister as a late teen/young adult would watch this show regularly on our only TV around that time, (a Black & White GE with the 19" screen on a rolling metal stand). I had no choice but to watch it with her as a 4 - 5 y.o. then. I just found it amusing and funny with the 30 minute shows at that time. I don't remember any particular episode. My father did not get our 1st color TV until around1969-1970.

Now watching the episodes in full color as a 55 y.o. adult find it as wholesome entertainment, a reflection of the culture and times of that era. Some of the stories can be heartwarming too especially the episodes that involve Ann's relationship with her stern but loving father. Now being a father of a daughter myself, can appreciate the complexities of a father & daughter relations.

Also doesn't hurt to see a cute, young, and beautiful Marlo Thomas (daughter of 1950's sitcom star Danny Thomas) that is pleasing to the eye. Prefer the early look with her 1960's hairdo, remember as the show progressed into the early 1970's her hair along with that of her boyfriend "Donald" changed (got longer) with the times too. Ann didn't looked as cute and young anymore but still beautiful. I have no intention of watching the shows past this 1st season.

Found guest actors and actresses in this 1st season before they made it big or when younger such as Richard Dreyfuss, Terri Garr, George Carlin (short hair and "nice clean look" before he became a raunchy stand up comic with his beard and ponytail). The guy who played "Uncle Leo" on "Seinfeld", etc. Both Carroll O' Connor (as an Italian opera singer) and Rob Reiner from 1970's "All In The Family" - "Archie" & "Meathead" also had 1 episode parts. The kid who voiced "Linus" in the early Charlie Brown cartoons. Occasional regulars are a young Dabney Coleman who is Ann's neighbor Judy's husband and totally unrecognizable from his later acting career. A young Bernie Kopell (from the 1970's "Love Boat") plays Donald Hollinger's co-worker.

This is a pretty awful, totally unfunny TV series.

Let me tell ya - If I ever happen to encounter a girl who even comes close to being like "that" girl - I will run, run, run away in "that" opposite direction - Like - Pronto! I really will.

My overall summary of "That Girl" goes like this - It was an irksome, ill-conceived TV show all about a dumb, clueless, annoying blond who just happened to be a brunette. End of story.

As far as the Ann Marie character being a "struggling actress" goes - With a super-low IQ like hers - It's no wonder she was struggling - 'Cause - (Let's face it) - Real-life actress, Marlo Thomas (who played that girl) couldn't act her way out of a wet, paper bag. (No. Not even if her life depended on it)

Anyway - I cannot believe that this dreary, painfully predictable TV show was such a big, comedy hit way back in the mid-1960s ('cause it actually endured for 5 unbelievably awful seasons).
