One of the most worthwhile- if brief- series in TV history
It was an age when we dreamed that we could make a difference. Senator Hays Stowe- an amalgam of Bobby Kennedy, Birch Bayh, and a couple of other senators of the era- was an idealistic, principled, honorable, and generally worthy man who fought on the side of the angels.
We could use Hays Stowe again- if not in the Senate or the White House, at least on TV, as an icon of what public servants ought to be.
The best thing about the series is that it was well done. First-class drama, excellent characterization, and a presentation of the problems and issues of the age in all their complexity made viewers think- and dream of how our system would work.
I miss Hays Stowe.
