Why doesn't anyone remember this show?
9 September 2003 | by dtucker86See all my reviews

It is like this is the case of a show that sank without a trace! I remember watching this show as a 12 year old in the summer of 1980. I remember I first started watching it because Christopher Knight (Peter Brady) was in it. The late Ramon Bieri and K Callan played the Wabashes a middle class, blue-collar family (sort of like the Roseanne show). The show was about them dealing with typical family issues in a humorous way. One episode dealt with the older son having a drinking problem and another with the daughter cheating on a test in school because Joe was so demanding. Joe Wabash was a old fashioned sort of father but he and his wife really loved their children. They reminded me of the Brady's a lot because they were a strong family unit who solved their problems with togetherness and love. It was a funny show and I would love to see it in syndication. You don't see a lot of good family shows anymore that really are PRO family, I mean the old fashioned nuclear family and its a damn shame.
