In this comedy-family-drama about the early 1960's, the Pryor family deals with racism, feminism, adolescence, rock and roll, and general family issues. The daughter, Meg Pryor, dances on the show of the era American Bandstand while learning about love thanks to her less mainstream boyfriend, Luke, and about acceptance with her interracial friendship with her father's employee's son Sam. Patty Pryor, the youngest daughter learns how to grow up in a time of political and social turmoil along with her disabled younger brother Will. The oldest son JJ learns about love with his tumultuous relationship with his wealthy girlfriend Beth. All this time a war rages on in Vietnam and a family struggles to stay together in this controversial era

Set in the sixties, it offers a nice contrast of the world of fun in the U.S. represented by American Bandstand and popmusic, in contradiction to antiwar movement and the actual war in Vietnam. Very watchable family drama.

One of the most enjoyable, family programs I every enjoyed on television. A visional incite to life in the 1960's. I still await season's two and three released on video. The cast was wonderful. One of the best!
