Trivia

This show was controversial because it was the subject of constant criticism that it did not realistically portray the lives of blacks in America. Diahann Carroll continuously defended it in interviews, saying that it was a "fantasy" and that very little on TV showed life as it really was. The show may have been ahead of its time, and when The Cosby Show (1984) premiered and became a mega-hit, the American public showed that it finally was ready for a show of its type. See more »

You catch more flies with honey!
29 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe some of the vapid comments about this wonderfully gentle and sweet ground-breaking show! I remember watching Julia when I was young and being very impressed by its cast and storyline; they were both very creative. Why do you make fun of it because it wasn't about angry, bitter black people with chips on their shoulders, but about a young black mother who was a nurse and her little son trying to live upbeat, positive, fulfilling lives while the male head of the family was serving his country in Vietnam. This was a landmark show for America and deserves more respect! This show was like a Serenity Prayer for race relations! Not all "progress" is made by angry, bitter, or violent people protesting in the marketplace. Real progress is often made one by one by individuals who can see past the divides to reach out on a daily basis to people of different races and religions, with a sense of goodwill and humility.

So it was with Julia. You catch more flies with honey instead of vinegar and I'm sure this show did more to increase understanding among whites for the everyday concerns of black folk than all the Jesse Jacksons and Malcolm X's in the world!
