Loved it as a kid
I was in junior high when this played on TV. I watched the first episode and was hooked. I found the characters believable, the stories involving and watched every single episode that aired. Even the acting was good--Ronny Cox and especially Francis Lee McCain where like the parents I never had (my real parents were OK though:)). The episode I remember vividly was when a hurricane hit and the family had a variety of crisis's to deal with. Also this had a VERY young Kristy McNichol (who replaced Frannie Michel) and hottie Vincent Van Patten. I loved the show but I never want to see it again. I'd probably find it boring and corny now...but I have the nice memories of it to remember.
