Vague memories
31 October 2006 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Hamner basically ripped off his own "The Waltons" creation, for this "contemporary" variation, with a liberal flair. YouTube currently has the opening credits - check out the link provided in the menu for "clips."

So many of the questions arising in these comments are clearly answered by IMDb, such as dates of broadcast, length of series, etc. Obviously, "Apple's Way" was a mid-season replacement series, that started in Feb. of 1974, and ended its run in Jan of 1975.

"The Tree" episode sticks out in my mind, but then again, it was the first episode aired.

I didn't realize that Kristy McNichol replaced another actress, as she is the only person I remember in the role.

Trivia note: Lorimar also produced something called "Second Chances" in the early 90s, and Ronny Cox and Lee McCain once again played spouses for a few episodes.
