Delightful story, with believable characters dealing with tough situations in a human and comedic way.
REMEMBER WHEN is a wonderful surprise.
It is the story of a family during WW2, placed somewhere in the U.S. It tells of their trials and sorrows during this time and how they get through tough situations with humor and love.
Having its powerful punches like the episode involving the younger brother who not having much money to spend for his mother's birthday innocently decides to send her a singing telegram.
In a time when telegrams come with death notices, this potentially horrifying experience turns humorous when the telegraph operator takes out his pitchpipe and begins singing.
The need to save and scrimp along with rationing becomes a serio-comedic situation when the uncle and his brother in driving to work at a speed of 15 mph leave the back door open for picking up passengers. Thus requiring the rider to run along side the car and jump in.
Inviting soldiers in for dinner the meatloaf dinner turns out to be mostly corn flakes, leftovers in the fridge and only the tiniest bit of meat.
All in all it is great fun and delightful viewing.
