Picks and Pans Review: Sitcom

The companies of Mork & Mindy, Laverne & Shirley and Happy Days are followed through a typical production week in an irreverent half-hour documentary. Originally planned as a much more elaborate project before the producers ran out of money, the program takes on the herculean task of showing how ratings, censorship and TV executives work. If that isn't enough, there are even spoof commercials by humorist Marshall Efron.
