- Real Name
Neil, what is your opinion on the Governor and JJ? I've been very curious about it and remember it vaguely. Was it a comedy or drama? Wish more late sixties and early seventies one year series would come out. You also remember Lucas Tanner, would like to see more of that.
It was a half hour sitcom. It actually lasted another 1/2 season of 13 episodes for a total of 39 episodes. I watched it as a teen when it was on. I don't remember loving it, but there was something appealing about it. I remember an occasional cameo from an actual Governor of the time. And Neva Patterson was in it, whom I always enjoyed when she was in anything.
I always thought the Governor's name was awkward, Governor Drinkwater. The plot of the only episode I can remember, and after all this time I could be slightly off, but it involved his daughter J.J. going to some function with him when she finds out another woman is attending in the exact same dress that she has. They spend the next part of the episode trying to quickly remedy the situation and she at last has another dress to wear. All is well. When they enter the dining room, however, J.J. is horrified to discover that all the chairs are upholstered in the exact same material and design her dress is made of. A scene of her sitting down in one of those chairs was quite memorable, I guess, because i still remember it! And I was watching it in black & white!
