This was a wonderful show!
13 November 1999 | by (Wilson) – See all my reviews

I am shocked that anyone remembers this show. It wasn't on very long, but it was an awesome show. The show centered around three generations of the Langston family living together in one house. Neb Langston, the patriarch of the family also took in a troubled kid named Marcus. It is a shame that it got cancelled, because it was a real treat.
