One of the great "unknown" Television shows,this civic -minded program focused on a crusading state legislator ( Superbly played by Richard Crenna) and his "people"; his constituents and his legislative colleagues.The critics and a small, but fervent, group of adoring fans loved it. Although it was canceled after one season, massive protests broght it back for half a seaon more.Unlikely to ever be released on DVD,sadly enough.
