Another great show that doesn't get enough attention
14 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I came across this show because of Edward James Olmos. And although I'm not Latino, I still find the show has many aspects that many people will find hit home. Each character in the show brings something from the different points of view in life. I'll admit I mostly lean toward Olmos' character and what he goes through to what he feels is right for the family. After all, it's not easy being a father (or admittingly a mother either). It was also saddening to see Conrado die doing what he felt was right and trying to make a difference. I think most people who see this can relate to at least one character in this show, and I hope PBS will be able to keep it going.
