Default Family - The Complete First and Second Seasons DVD Review

Family is the hit dramatic series that explores the lives, loves, and hardships of a contemporary 1970s American family, told with heart and humor. Originally given a six-episode run, the show became a surprise hit in the fall of 1976, and won two Emmy Awards for the second season. This groundbreaking series is a Mike Nichols production (Academy Award Winner 1967, Best Director, The Graduate), created by Jay Presson Allen (Cabaret) and executive produced by the powerhouse producing team of Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg (TV's Charlie's Angels and Starsky & Hutch).

Family follows the saga of the Lawrence family of Pasadena, California - parents Kate (Sada Thompson) and Doug (James Broderick), and their three children: young divorced mother Nancy (played by Elayne Heilveil in the first season, and by Meredith Baxter Birney in the second season), high school dropout Willie (Gary Frank), and young teenage daughter Buddy (Kristy McNichol). Notable guest stars include Willie Aames, Helen Hunt, James Woods, and Tommy Lee Jones.

I liked your review TJ, and I think you did the set justice.

Now that Sony is about finished with Bewitched, I hope they dig into the vaults and get Family seasons 3-5 out of mothballs. I want to see more!!
