James, a daydreamer and photographer, must learn to cope with life as his father moves the family from Oregon to Boston MA. Though there is much humor here, the series dealt with many serious problems (teenage alcoholism, virginity, pregnancy, venereal disease). Written by

The home where James lived with his parents was a facade on the 20th Century Fox lot. In 1979, if one were to walk up the stairs and through the front door, one would have had the surreal experience of walking down stairs to ground level facing a soundstage about 50 feet in the distance. Upon entering this soundstage and walking several yards you would have found yourself on the pool deck of The Love Boat (1977). See more »
I was 16 when this show came out. It made me distinctly uncomfortable, and worse as the show went on. I kept thinking, man, what is it with this twerpy kid? I loved how another commenter stated that this was great, like "My So Called Life", another show that depicted teens saying things like no teen on earth says them. If that is the kind of show you like, this show is for you.
The show was boring, strange, and off putting. I remember it was on a night where nothing else was on, and I carried through like four episodes, and that was enough. I remember the novelty of the show changing names when he went another year.
The reason why this show didn't continue is it really stank.
