Love, Natalie | 1979
The story satirizes family life as seen through the eyes of Natalie Miller -- wife, mother, and overall problem-solver. The title is derived from Natalie's closing in her letter to her mother, which she reads during the opening. She also speaks directly to the audience and relates her feelings regarding the situations that develop. In the pilot episode, Natalie struggles to adjust to the fact that her husband's best friend, a real pest, is now moving in with her and her family.
