Good show in the '70's
31 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked this show a lot when it came out. I was around 12 years old and had a HUGE crush on Michael Ontkean. That may have been the main reason I really liked this show. However, I liked the gruff but lovable Lt.Riker. He had some pretty good lines and he always treated the rookies with respect. This show was repeated on a cable channel a few years ago (can't remember which one) and as I watched (as a medical professional) I could not help but laugh at the medical scenes. They were not terribly accurate. This was a show that the entire family watched together. There were some love scenes for Mom, some chase scenes and shootings for Dad, good looking men for the girls in the family and good looking ladies for the boys. This was the show that we saw Georg Stanford Brown and Tyne Daly work together for the first time and eventually marry in real life. Overall, I kind of want to see this show repeated on cable again.
