A suitable title would be "Not-So-Happy Days"
4 January 2000 | by (Catania, Italy) – See all my reviews

"Sons & Daughters" is a dramatic counterpart to "Happy Days". Like "Happy Days", the series took place in the 1950s, with a backdrop of fifties music and fifties related activities.

Unlike "Happy Days", the story line was more tragic evolving around Anita Cramer (played by Glynnis O'Connor) and Jeff Reed (played by Gary Frank).

The two were young teenagers growing up in the 1950s, who were in love with each other, but were afraid to follow their hearts. This was due to the fact that Jeff's parents were divorced and Anita was living with her father who was either divorced or a widower. Anita and Frank were both afraid to fall in love because they were uncertain about their feelings and both were afraid of hurting each other or being hurt the way both their parents were hurt.

Though the storyline was bleak, there were a lot of lighter moments provided by the antics of "Stash", "Shark" and "Moose" along with their friends, who were engaging in the typical mischief that made the 1950s such a nostalgic time. There was the soda shop where everybody hung out. There were also the "submarine races" and an "inspiration point" where teenaged couples used to go to "make out".

It was a good program that bordered between "soap" and "drama' with enough "comedy" to make this an entertaining program.

Unfortunately, there weren't enough of the lighter moments to save the series from being cancelled.
