Description by OLDIES.com:
Jewish working-class cab driver Bernie Steinberg (David Birney, TV's "St. Elsewhere") falls in love at first sight with privileged Catholic teacher Bridget Fitzgerald (Meredith Baxter, TV's "Family Ties"), and they find themselves in a whirlwind romance. While their love is constant, their parents are constantly meddling, both sides uncomfortable with each other's social status and religion. Also starring David Doyle (TV's "Charlie's Angels") and Audra Lindley (TV's "Three's Company"), BRIDGET LOVES BERNIE was a situation comedy ahead of its time. Newly remastered.
CBS's one-season situation comedy BRIDGET LOVES BERNIE starred Meredith Baxter and David Birney (real-life paramours who later wed) as the married title characters. Bernie Steinberg was a struggling writer from a working-class Jewish family, who drove a taxicab to support himself; Bridget Fitzgerald Steinberg was his bride, an elementary school teacher who hailed from a wealthy Irish Catholic clan. Episodes generally concerned the ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic clashes between the two families. Co-stars included Bibi Osterwald, Audra Lindley and Harold J. Stone. This box set contains the entire series, which ran from the fall of 1972 through the spring of 1973.
