THANK YOU PBS!!!!
28 February 2002 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

Wonderful thought provoking show. The Mexican-American family shown in a true and honest way. Story lines that remind one of family and how important they are in our lives. Great to see a Latino Cast in a wonderful ensemble show.
