when TV was family oriented
20 January 2006 | by (San Diego USA) – See all my reviews

I remember this show when I was a pre-teen. It was family oriented touching on a wondering child looking for love and a family. Story content skips my mind, but the porch was where many of the problems were solved with Jamie and his aunt in her chair. It has been 50 years since I last saw it, but it left a lasting effect on me and I only wish that one day the show will be made available for all to see. This young man was another James Dean. I also say that about River Phoenix...........I don't know why, but the brilliant die young. De Wilde, Phoenix and Dean took the world by storm with their ability to make you believe in their character. Brandons films were made with integrity and emotional drain. I can't imagine the movie industry never having had these stars appear and give us there all.
