Let’s go back to 1977 for this hilarious, ground-breaking show.
Those of us who grew up with this show probably remember all the taboos it brought into focus. It’s also amazing that when you watch these episodes today how tame the shows were compared to what we see on TV today.
The show lasted four seasons on ABC from Sept. 77 thru April of ’81. Back then, a ‘real’ TV show season was 24 to 26 episodes. Many shows no longer have that many episodes, some still do but for the most part, many almost seem like mini-series’.
Soap starred a very young Billy Crystal who played a homosexual which helped stir the pot back then because that kind of character was not a norm on TV. The great cast included Katherine Helmond, Richard Mulligan, Roscoe Lee Browne and so many others.
