The best show to show love between grown ups and kids., 2 June 2009
Author: SenaShetani from United States

I enjoyed watching the show because it hit home with the message of love for your neighbor and country. That is something the country need right now. It is obvious, the show was a couple of decades ahead of its time. The actors and actresses were great too.The actress I really enjoyed was Barbara Meek. This actress seem to draw your attention by her smile. Jake drew your attention by showing a fatherly concern for the kids. The show explained to the audience how orphans go through situations of loneliness. Jake and Babara exemplified how we are to handle problematic kids. Now, that is really needed today. I think this show or its episodes should be aired again. Today, we need shows like this one to steer kids in the right direction again by assuring that there are people who really care.

Time has caught up with the let's air it again and watch TV ratings sky rocket.
