Overview

Synopsis

Season Three of Eight is Enough finds Abby Bradford (Betty Buckley) fully accepted as the second wife of Sacramento columnist Tom Bradford (Tom Bosley) by Tom's extremely judgemental brood of eight children, who now range in age from 10 to 25. Also, recurring actress Jennifer Darling has been promoted to "regular" status in the role of Tom's hardworking secretary Donna. The realm of "Higher Education" figures prominently in this season's episodes, as Mary Bradford (Lani O'Grady) contends with male chauvinism during her first year of medical school, Nancy Bradford (Dianne Kay) flunks out of college, Elizabeth Bradford (Connie Needham) tries to win a dance scholarship, and Susan Bradford (Susan Bradford) entertains the notion of training to be a policewoman. In other developments, Abby thinks she's pregnant, and later despairs when she learns her parents are divorcing; Nicholas Bradford (Adam Rich) has his first kiss, and also invites Vice President Mondale to have Thanksgiving dinner with the Bradfords (though the VP accepts, we never see him!); on a dark and stormy night, Nancy brings home a blind date (Larry Gilman who bears a frightening resemblance to Anthony Perkinsin Psycho); Nancy, Susan and their sister Joannie (Laurie Walters) defiantly move out their parents' house and into their own apartment; and in a foretaste of a plot development which will occur in the series' final season, Tommy Bradford (Willie Aames) offers to wed his pregnant girlfriend (played by a young Rosanna Arquette), even though he's not the father. The biggest news this season concerns oldest Bradford son David (Grant Goodeve), who falls in love with an attractive attorney named Janet (Joan Prather. By the time the season finale rolls around, David and Janet have embarked on a cross-country vacation to celebrate their engagement. ~ Hal Erickson
