Dennis Weaver in Kentucky Jones
I really enjoyed it and it should have been given a chance. It was some what like a modern version of Veterinarian James Herriot series. Well acted by Weaver as a devoted, sensitive no-nonsense single father willing to listen to his son. The role displayed a strong work ethic, capacity to explain differences on many subjects, cultural as well personal. This was (to me) one of his best roles, non-pretentious, serious, manner yet displaying some comedy and sense of wit. It was cancelled without giving it a chance to establish itself and the theme and expand the nuances. The supporting cast was very good especially the roll played by Harry Morgan.
