Pretty good show
21 December 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this short-lived series (although 13 episodes were shot, only 11 were ever aired). Sunday evening at 7 PM was an awful time slot for family fare, opposite ABC's Wonderful World of Disney. Replaced by the venerable "60 Minutes" - which continues to win that time slot until this very day. Veteran character actor Alex Rocco (usually known for playing mafia types, as in "Get Shorty") plays a photographer with two teen sons (TV teen idol Vince Van Patten - real life son of "Eight is Enough" dad Dick Van Patten and the then-unknown Leif Garrett). Rocco was cool in that 70s hipster dad way - long hair, relaxed attitude and a you-have-to-figure-things-out-for-yourself style of childrearing. As they traveled the country in their Vogue Motor Coach they naturally encountered troubled people and helped them solve their problems. In one episode ("Ghost Story") guest star Stefanie Powers believes her dead twin sister had come back to life and in another ("Prisoner in Sneakers") a teen contemporary of Endy's tries to stowaway in the motor home to escape a detention home. Often ended with one of the boys in trouble (usually Endy) - caught in an undertow, in danger while hang-gliding, etc... Fun for kids but apparently no one else. It'd be great to see it again.
