A show all about life and family
14 May 2006 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this series from the first moment it started. With an outstanding cast and story lines, it is by far in my personal Top 5. My Mother grew up in Brooklyn and adored the Dodgers. Being 100% Irish, she can attest to the Irish family. She can remember the Knot Hole Gang and seeing the Bums at Ebbets Field all the time. The show hits on many of the traditions of various faiths and how they interacted with others. I just hope that sooner rather than later, this series can be found on DVD. It would be a shame if this did not happen. It truly is a wonderful show! Also, it is surprising that more of the younger actors and actresses didn't go on to other projects. The older cast members, have already had some great bodies of work. Marion Ross for one. Happy Days was a fantastic show and Mrs. Cunningham was one of TVs most popular mothers.
