Thoughtful episode from the sterling third season...
8 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A surprising number of minorities turned up on the plushly-produced "Family Affair", usually placed front and center to help the kids on the show learn a lesson about differences (everybody looks different, but we're all pretty much the same). The thoughtful episode "Albertine" is unusual because it's the shy African-American schoolgirl at the heart of the story who learns a little something about others and herself. She lives in the poor section of New York City and tells big tales about her life to cover up, but Buffy and Jody don't care when they learn the truth--they just want everyone to stay friends. "Family Affair" often surrounded the Davis twins with kids and grown-ups who were from different countries, or struggling with disabilities or illness; not one remark is made or eyebrow raised about Albertine's race (which is refreshing), yet the significant contrast between her world and the Davis' is very nicely made.
