I first saw Wilford Brimley in Abscense Of Malice. He was the crusty, old fashioned justice department lawyer who set Paul Newman and Sally Field straight in the end. He also played a bad guy in Act Of Vengeance.
I think this show was his best work because the character was written just for him, a lovable old curmudgeon with his heart on his sleeve. Deidre Hall is a beautiful woman and a great actress. She was wonderful as the stern, strict, but loving mother on this show. What I liked is that every episode had a moral or a lesson to it. My family and I used to watch this every Sunday. The first season was great, but for some reason every episode on the second season got dumber and dumber and then it was cancelled. I think they should have gotten some better writers because this was a show that I think was worth saving.
