this series had some very interesting casting problems. The actress playing the daughter changes over the course of the series.The problem:. Since old geezers in film and t.v. need to have a young beautiful blond on their arm, how do you do this when the audience is expecting the chaste Andy Taylor of Mayberry. How do you have an old guy flirt with a beautiful young blonde who is young enough to be his daughter without the geezer seeming like a lech?
Well, you make her his daughter. Huh?
The actress in the role kept changing because it was really hard to play this absurd part. smart enough to be a lawyer, but cute and flirty, and nonthreatening -- the traditional function of the dumb blonde.. there always seemed like something kind of off in the father-daughter relationship--because it was only an excuse to have the patrician old guy hang out with a much younger girl.

Great series, but the first 2CD's (of Discs 1-4) are so scratched up that I couldn't even enjoy them. Pity.
