Although I think the Venus Smith character was a huge misfire for the show, being totally against the grain of interesting and dynamic (nay, groundbreaking) female regular characters - even the surgery receptionists of Drs Keel and King were more enterprising - I do in fact love Julie Stevens and her enthusiasm for the show and her part in it.

I'm tempted to watch her episodes (and hers alone) in sequence and in production order to see how they progressed, or regressed. IIRC, she started as a mature woman and ended as a Beatles groupie. Though I will be putting ear plugs in for the songs.

I'd recommend that Franky but I like Venus. You will too by the time you reach "Man in the Mirror". Smile
To my mind, she progressed from being a dull Fifties cabaret performer to a groovy beat chick. Why they ever put her in that terrible wig for the early episodes is beyond me.

Every episode from 1961 to 1977 plus more trivia than you can shake a brolly at.

amen...always felt that Venus, wasn't the mishap, that many felt she was...and the hair?

chalk it up to budget concerns

A Happy Birthday (20th Dec) to Julie Stevens. Venus Smith is very entertaining!

I always fast forward past the musical numbers. They just seem like padding. But I love all of her episodes, especially A Chorus of Frogs and School for traitors.

Having spoken to her on the 'phone and exchanged various emails with her, Julie Stevens is very entertaining!
