I took to my bed with a headache last night. (The jury is still out this morning. Thank you for asking.) I ended up watching an episode and a half of Maude.
The only thing I remember of watching Maude were the opening credits.
I’m guessing this is because Maude was on past my bedtime, or because — and this just came to me last night — Maude may not have been the best role model for an impressionable young mind. Remember now, that I wasn’t allowed to have Barbies, so it wasn’t a matter of Maude being too much of a women’s lib figure or some such thing. No, on the episode I watched last night, Maude was just plain rude.
I think I must have been watching the last episode. Maude was appointed to congress. Adrienne Barbeau was nowhere to be seen. I’m wondering if that would have made a difference. Did she help back up poor long-suffering Walter? Poor Walter! My goodness, Maude. No wonder he is your fourth husband.
Isn’t it interesting how time changes our perspective? Or maybe I would never have found Maude funny.
