The Feel Good Show of 1986
15 July 2003 | by jwrowe3See all my reviews

Personal Note: I first saw this show during the three worst months of my life, working in Big Spring Texas.

Pleasant enough hour long drama series on CBS that ran for about 3 months. A mixed cast of old and young stars.

+++Spoler Alert!+++

After the town orphanage is destroyed, the young residents are allowed to stay at a retirement home. We see the trials and tribulations of the two generations learning to live together under one roof.

Of the younger stars, two went on the bigger and better things, Fred Savage, and Leaf Phoenix. The elder cats included the great Scatman Crothers, and Mason Adams, the voice of Smuckers Jam commercials in the USA.

As it was on for so short a time, it's fair to guess this show is lost to the ages.
