Storyline

Joseph and Anna Bresner were Lithuanian immigrants who came to New York City to live in 1909. Every episode opened with an octogenarian Joseph narrating an episode from his past when he and Anna were struggling to survive in a new country, new culture and new language. Sidney and Ida were the Bresners' friendly neighbors in Manhattan; Louis and Leo were also friends. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

A post 'Meathead' Rob Reiner stars in this comedy about Ellis Isle era immigrants.

This was funnier than you think.

Despite the obvious sit-com trappings, it really attempted to show how it was for these people.

The supporting cast was top-notch and the setting, although a tad dark, was as good as it could have been for a half hour show.

Reiner owned this one. His comic timing and sometimes OTT manic intensity kept me laughing.

I had seen this during a vacation to Florida back in the summer of '78.

What does it tell you that I never forgot it.
