I saw this show when I was in college
30 June 2004 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

Another candidate for the DVD market. Danny Thomas is Dr.

Benjamin Douglass, a divorced father of two. Diana, his daughter, who's also divorced, and the mother of a young daughter, Becky, and a guilt-ridden teenage son. The story revolves around the relationships between Diana, her father, daughter, and brother. The daughter looked like a Mommy-my-braids-are-too-tight girl. It would be a great addition to the TV Land lineup.
