Very Good and Educational!!!
9 June 2003 | by (Oakland) – See all my reviews

As another review pointed out this was a PBS show that was very good. It has been over 20 years since I have seen it. When I was in high school, I remember going to a department store in Berkeley, Ca, where I saw a classmate working there and she introduced to me to Yule Caise, who played the youngest son on this show. I remember it also having a nice theme song. I liked it because it was realistic and did not demean the black family as some are stereotypically depicted. It depicted the sons and the daughter as having the ability to be able to make the right choices and if they didn't, the ability to talk to their parents about what they did wrong and go on from there. At least two of the actors were well known, Robert DoQui who played the father and Gammy Taylor who played the mother. Another one would become well known as an actress and more so as a singer, her name, Cindy Herron of En Vogue who played the daughter. PBS made a wise choice in airing this show and "Righteous Apples" another good program but that's another story!!!!
