When I was a kid, I wanted to be able to fly, but the whole premise of The Flying Nun was the end of the "gimick comedies" i.e. Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, etc. Sister Bertrille, was a mortal, feet of clay, why would she want to die and go to heaven? She was having too much fun flying around the place? By the way, did it ever occur to the viewing public, how the hell did she keep that habbit on her head when she was flying? Wouldn't it have parted with the rest of her and taken off - leaving her to plunge to her death? It must have been screwed into her skull.
