Trivia

The home where James lived with his parents was a facade on the 20th Century Fox lot. In 1979, if one were to walk up the stairs and through the front door, one would have had the surreal experience of walking down stairs to ground level facing a soundstage about 50 feet in the distance. Upon entering this soundstage and walking several yards you would have found yourself on the pool deck of The Love Boat (1977). See more »

A very good program!!
30 July 2002 | by SkippyDevereauxSee all my reviews

I found this to be a very entertaining program and wished it could have stayed on the air longer. It looked at the world through a teen-ager's eyes and dealt with subjects that many adults did not think dealt with teens,such as, alcoholism, pregnancy, dying, venereal disease. The acting was believable with Lance Kerwin as "James". Susan Myers was also very good in the role of "Marlene", the plain-looking but intelligent friend of "James".
