It Takes Two – Col Troutman before Rambo


It Takes Two was a short-lived sitcom on ABC, premiering in October 1982 and only lasting for 22 episodes. It was created by Susan Harris, who also created “Soap” and “Benson”. I loved the show, but not sure how I made it through the opening and ever watched the show… The theme song, which Crystal Gayle and Paul Williams sang, was kinda like a root canal, you just wanted it over with… Oh, and if the kitchen in the show looks familiar, it was saved when the show was cancelled, and used unchanged for “The Golden Girls”.

As you can see, the show had a great cast, Richard and Patti were well established stars, and had Helen Hunt and Anthony Edwards early in their careers. The show was funny, and I watched the entire season, but it was not meant to last, Richard Crenna starred in a little film called “First Blood” as Col Troutman, and he had to do several sequels…

Here is the promo…


Full blown child of the 70's and 80's...
