Entertaining 1950's Drama

7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I recently bought a DVD containing four episodes online, since I am a researcher of 1950's television. After watching the first episode on the disc, I'm amazed this series didn't last longer. It's an entertaining, smart if sentimental drama series which holds up very well. In the episode, Dr Hudson is visiting a preacher, with his daughter going to Sunday school. When the Sunday school teacher dies in a car crash, his daughter feels responsible, and it doesn't help that two of her classmates are blaming her for the teachers death. Importantly, this series demonstrates the differences between today's often gritty series, and the more family-based series popular at the time. Also worth of note is two things shown the episode that censors wouldn't allow today: A Pipe tobacco smoking preacher, and a brief sermon at the end. Fans of 1950's Cinema may enjoy this series, as it more cinematic than the live shows of the time, as this show was produced on film.
