perfect for its time
These shows, at least when I watched them as a child, were incredibly realistic, much in the same way the tv movies of the week featuring stars like Linda Blair were - they held nothing back, every situation depicted was really the way it was - nothing was hidden or whitewashed or censored the way those situations would be today - the '70s really did let it all hang out.

I did not, of course, watch this show as I got older and was therefore the age the show was actually tailored to, and had no idea the show went on for decades past my remembrance, but the shows I saw in the '70s were perfection and I would love to see them again.
