There have been many wonderful shows, but My Three Sons have to be one
of the best. Fred MacMurray, did such a wonderful job as the father in
this show. When had those special scenes in which he was advising his
kids or explaining something to them, he would come across as someone
who was caring and very attached to his kids. I know some fathers in
this world who have trouble at being interested let alone caring.
Today, this show might seem dated, but there is a lot we can gain from
watching this show. The ideas of making a family that will work
together and see things through, is a good example of one thing that we
can gain from this. Television today doesn't have very many shows that
will show a family working together as a unit.
Hopefully someday, we will see this show on DVD, and have it start from
the beginning episode in season one. I think there is a lot we can get
from this show.
