Intensely moving episode
7 January 2014 | by (West Coast) – See all my reviews

I must have seen every episode of "Family Affair" at least five times, both during it's original run and early syndication, when CBS used to air it as part of their weekday morning CBS lineup around '70 and '71. As the same age as the children on the show, and just as innocent, this particular episode with Eve Plumb, obviously went above my head. I thought the poor girl was simply ill; I didn't know she was "terminally ill." Some forty-five years later, and as an adult viewer, I see what this episode is truly about, and I was so incredibly moved.

I am surprised this particular episode of "Family Affair" isn't talked about more often. It is truly a classic.
