THE DAYS AND NIGHTS OF MOLLY DODD
April 17, 1989  | By David Bianculli  | 3 comments
 

(New York Post - April 17, 1989) Someday, if there is justice in the world, this brilliant Jay Tarses series will be a) released on DVD, and b) widely recognized as the true classic that it was. Molly Dodd was the missing link between The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Ally McBeal, and was every bit as good. And Blair Brown... in this show, she made me sigh.

GoodLife TV ran this for a short time. A wonderful show. I have linked to a small snippet of the wonderful writing of this show.

I remember the great plotlines:

- She falls in love with a Hassidic man who, ultimately cannot return her affections.
- The elevator operator, who has a self-important air about him, as well as not being able to run the elevator smoothly gives Molly his book-in-progress to read. She likes one aspect of it, but finds the part about the guy living in a tunnel ridiculous. He upbraids her, saying that she has it backwards. He then tells a heartbreaking story about his son who really DOES live in the subway tunnel. It is a mark of this show that the silliest character could share such a great moment.

This snippet shows one of the finer compliments you will see to-day:

Why aren't all old programs a viable via Amazon? I don't own a tv. So no cable eitherv. Want everything on demand
and can no longer follow or comprehend shows with commercials in them. I'd pay for this in a heartbeat. And I am an old gal..so tis not just millennials bless their heart.

Can't tell you how many times I've checked to see if this series was available on Netflix or Hulu... would love to binge watch!
