Nice family show
26 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would certainly like to see all of the series of Palmerstown again. I remember it as a young- adult growing up. It had the some of the same qualities of say the Waltons or little house on the prairie. I enjoyed good wholesome family entertainment. I don't know why it went off of the air so quickly. I would really like to see it again. We have so little good wholesome programming these days and when I saw Palmerstown for the first time I was really delighted. It dealt with many real life issues that were prevalent at that time. I kind of like that "down home" feeling that you can get when watching Palmerstown. I would really hope to see it again in the near future.
