An amazing series - give me a DVD!
5 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wish I'd been able to catch all the episodes when this was on. If it were available on DVD, I'd certainly buy it. The cast and stories were amazing. My favorite moment was the sight of Gabriel Bird enjoying his first hot dog after release from prison. The pure joy in this simple act was a wonder to behold, and James Earl Jones did some great work here.

The previous reviewer wondered if James Earl Jones had received an Emmy nomination. Not only was he nominated - he won, for best actor, for his work in this series. Also Madge Sinclair won the Emmy for best actress, for this series. It was a nice Emmy moment for the series ABC had all but canceled. They brought it back, sort of, as "Pros and Cons" - which I never saw, but it doesn't sound much like the series I loved. Too bad.
