  1. I think there may have been a mix-up here. A few words about B&C&T&A: It was a cleaned-up adaption of the 1969 mate-swapping movie. About the raciest thing in the series is that the 4 major characters skinny-dipped together in the pilot, however this being ABC and not HBO nothing was seen. The most memorable factor was the casting: the free-thinking Bob and Carol were played by Robert Urich [the first of over a dozen series he would do over the next 25 years] and Anne Archer [daughter of Marjorie Lord and who is best remembered for killing Glenn Close in “Fatal Attraction”]. Ted and Alice’s daughter was played by future double-Oscar winner Jodie Foster.
