In 1973, when Frank Bledsoe and his 18-year-old niece Beth take a road trip from Manhattan to Creekville, South Carolina for the family patriarch's funeral, they're unexpectedly joined by Frank's lover Walid.
The City was Valerie Harper's follow-up after she left her own show on NBC called The Hogan Family (previously called Valerie, then Valerie's Family, in hope she'd return, when she didn't, she was replaced with Sandy Duncan).
The City was put on the air directly opposite The Hogan Family as if to see which one people preferred, or that we 'sided' with, Valerie or her old show.
The City actually did beat The Hogan Family in the ratings, and Harper seemed to take that as some indication that she was the victor.
Funnier still, it seems she had a daughter on The City who was the real-life sister of one of the guys who played a son on the NBC show.
With the Valerie-Hogan Family currently in reruns, I wondered what become of her 'victory' show, all but forgotten and came here to these very odd reviews about it being seen in a group screening for commercial products.
I have no idea what all that is about.
Of the two, I watched the Hogan show more, but wouldn't mind seeing this show again also.
