Trivia

The interior set for the family's trailer was a real Airstream trailer which had been removed from its original frame. It was made about three feet wider than a normal Airstream trailer and then reassembled on a platform which could also accommodate lighting and camera equipment. Sections of the trailer set could be removed, one by one, to allow for various angles of camera coverage. See more »

Goofs

The interior Airstream set was about three feet wider than the Airstream trailer which was used for exterior shots. The extra width in the set's ceiling was covered by a removable, simulated skylight which is clearly visible throughout the series. The top of the trailer shown in exterior shots has no visible signs of a skylight. See more »

Values and Veterans
31 October 2005 | by (King City, Ca.) – See all my reviews

Although it has been off the air for 6 years now, Promised Land was one of those shows that comes along once or twice in a generation. Good cast, supporting cast(among them, Richard Thomas and Ossie Davis) and crew. The plot is believable with McRaney packing up his family and just saying "to hell with it all" after being subjected to so many disappointments and incidents since his return from Vietnam years earlier. I think a lot of Vietnam-era veterans, myself included, could really relate to McRaney's thought process in finally deciding on his course of action. Many of us did precisely the same thing in real life, after returning from that war and finding that America was not the same place we left. The show imparts not only values but a glimpse into what took place in one veterans life. In those two respects alone, I think it is one of the more poignant TV series of our time. Why this program only ran for 3 years is beyond me.
