This addition to the B&V collection is rated Good and it definitely shows it with some wear and a mark.

Occasionally the gags were a little suggestive of something naughty.
Yet the gags were never more randy than the jokes on Three’s Company or M*A*S*H.
Now what’s with Veronica dating all these other guys?
