A stellar series!
Look up the word "quality" and the definition is "American Family".

The Gonzalez clan happen to be Latino, but they could be any family in America. Edward James Almos and Sonia Braga are truly brilliant as Jess and Berta Gonzalez [sadly, as is with most quality televison, both were passed over for much deserved Emmy nominations].

American Family" is lovingly written with heart, humor and intimacy. If you didn't catch it on PBS, try and find it on's well worth the effort!
