The program was originally titled "Winter with flowers," but when a cake bearing the title was presented at the taping of the first episode, the cast and crew refused to eat any cake unless the name of the series was changed. See more »
In Season 2 Episode 3 (1992), Lionel comments on Rocky's lifestyle, in that "the way he goes about life, he's only got two or three years at best." In Season 3 Episode 2 (1993), Lionel is on the phone with Rocky's doctor, Dr. Field, and tells Jean that "the old fool will be lucky if he lasts another year." In Season 3 Episode 10, Madge admits to knowing that "Rocky isn't supposed to have very much time." Nothing else was mentioned about Rocky's health. Ironically, in real life, Joan Sims (who played Rocky's wife, Madge) died in 2001. Also, she was not featured in Season 8, which aired in 2000, even though she was referenced. See more »
This is the kind of show that restores faith in drama and comedy presentations on television. The producers and director have actually produced a show for a mature audience. The people portrayed are credible and delightful, and seem to be enjoying their participation in the series. My one fear is that the series is not continuing. I'm not sure how many episodes there are beyond Lionel and Jean's marriage, by my count, there seem to be another 5 to 10. The series is so good that I know that we would just love it to continue on. This gem of a show is the sort that people don't know terribly much about as it never received much fanfare. But, everyone I know who does watch it, almost always shares our enthusiasm and like ourselves, is shocked to discover that someone else loves it as much as they do. The cast and administrators should know how well appreciated they are for this wonderful show.
