    I've been watching one of the worlds worst Sitcoms on MEtv for about a month or so and there is a woman on the show that I've seen before but up until this past weekend her identity had escaped me.

    The horrible show in question is called "It's About Time" a Sherwood Schwarts (Brady Bunch/Gilligan's Island) show filmed at the same time as Gilligan's Island, same sets, shared music, it lasted 26 episodes and died. Premise: Two astronauts break the time barrier and go back the cave man era. Yeah a real winner. But the female lead, I've seen here before but where?

    See if you can figure it out, if you've seen her famous small but memorable role in a later movie you'll recognizer her even if you don' know why. It's the eyes hint hint.


    OK, where have you seen this woman before?

    WOW she does look like Carol Burnett, I never noticed that. No it's not Carol Burnett, it's not so much who, as what role you'll remember her from.

    YES indeed in your nightmares, in the role people will remember her from, she was an absolute nightmare. I swear you guys have seen her before.

    One of the nosy neighbors on Bewitched...maybe.. Seen her in a lot of period shows though. I'm thinking she was the first "Mrs Kravits" another lady took her part after the actess died.

    I believe her name is Alice Pearce. But I could be wrong.

    Yep I were wrong.

    I"ll let the OP spill the beans on who she is.

    Yes, that's Imogene Coca, same person as the female lead on the TV show "It's About Time". :thumb:

    I saw that show sometimes when I was a kid, and her name kinda jumped right out at me even then... not for the potential "druggie" reference, but because I never heard anybody named by her first name or surname before. I also thought her first name was pronounced as "Imogene-uh", or Imogena.

    I asked mom if she ever had heard of this Imogena Coca woman before. Mom knew who she was, and straightened me out on how to pronounce Ms. Coca's name.

    Later, she showed up on the Tonight Show, and I remember her saying that she never did like her name, and meant to change it when she decided to take a stab at show business, but that her manager told her to stick with her real name because it was so unusual and memorable.

    And so it was. Never forgot her name since that stupid show was on the air.

    Even as a kid, I thought that "It's About Time" sucked. I remember some of the lyrics to the song the show opened with, but that's about it. Can't remember a single thing about any episode I ever saw.

    :D:D:D

    All I remember is:

    It's about time, it's about space,
    about two men in the strangest place.


    Really stupid show. You know it's bad when a nine year-old thinks it sucks. :facepalm:

    Heh. That's Honey West... but I can't remember the name of the actress or the ocelot!

    I do remember that show, though. I remember the honeycomb pattern on the screen when the credits were rolling... and of course I remember Honey herself rather vividly...

    Not gonna cheat and post the real name of the actress, 'cause I had to look it up.

    I also don't really remember much about the show, except for gawking at Honey when she showed up in a leotard, high heels, and fishnets... :naughty:

    Yes: I was a perv even when I was prepubescent. :facepalm:
