Great family viewing!
What a truly delightful experience it was watching this series, again. Often, when we try to revisit experiences that produced pleasant memories - it proves disappointing. Not so in this case.
Any parent, single or not, can identify with the situations depicted in the episodes. And, whether the solutions offered would be their own or not, they are presented as coming from a caring, thoughtful well-motivated parent.
I have read about the series and apparently, almost without exception, the cast had great chemistry with each other and remained in contact after the series ended.
In interviews, Brandon Cruz (Eddie) has said that Bill Bixby (Tom, the father) was a wonderful man. That he was quite protective of young Brandon and was like a second father to him.
