The Nostalgia Files: Television
By Christopher Munroe
It was a monster hit, and no mystery why.
A woman in Boulder, Colorado takes a pig, fresh from the farm, as a roommate, and hilarity ensues as it does it’s best to fit into human society. The clash of cultures was a goldmine of comedic possibility, a well that would never run dry.
By the third season the show had run its course, midway through the fourth it was cancelled, and most agree it should have ended two years sooner.
Still, many fans of classic TV still have a soft spot in their heart for Pork and Mindy.
