Against the Grain should have succeeded
I too loved this series and was astounded it disappeared so quickly.

Ed Clemons quit his job as an insurance salesman, his wife Maggie had taken over the business while he was recovering. (His best friend runs the car dealership).

I loved the family dynamics that showed how each person could both need help and give help. My favorite episode is titled "Respect". It was so good to have an example where the parents didn't automatically buy the latest music player for their daughter, the son didn't automatically have sex with the cheerleader because there was an opportunity, the father trusted his wife while wanting to protect her.

What a wonderful program about real family values. I truly hope that someday this short-lived series will be made available on DVD.
