The last family drama
1 September 2005 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

The Family Tree was the last family drama to air on television. That genre's either dead, buried, or in the Witness Protection Program. Take your pick. Think of it as a dramatic version of the 1960s sitcom The Brady Bunch. Annie Benjamin, a divorced mother of three children. Sam, Tess, and Toby. Toby's deaf. Annie meets Kevin Nichols, the father of Jake. In the pilot, they get married and move in together. In one episode, Tess has a crush on her ballet teacher, who, it's later revealed, is gay. It aired on NBC from February to March 1983. Unfortunately, it was never picked up for the following season. This is a show that should be on either The Hallmark Channel, Nick At Night, or DVD. It had potential and it's too bad to see it wasted.
