Charles S. Dutton,
This show was one of the great moments of TV, when a show went beyond the obvious and focused on the goal of curing problems instead of causing them. It did for TV what the movie "Boyz in the Hood" did for film... it showed the world that everything isn't perfect everywhere. What it also did, though, was show that environment didn't produce animals, but people with purpose and morals. Larenz Tate did his thing, and ever since shows like this one and "Roc" went off the air, it has been downhill for black television.
