One of the best, yet died like the rest
12 December 2000 | by scyzgySee all my reviews

I cried when it was cancelled. I had to wait 9 years for TVLand to fill my need; this time I taped every episode! The writing, acting and overall production value of this show was outstanding. Too bad that ABC did not give it the support it needed. Look how long it took "Seinfeld" and 'Cheers" to become ratings hits. "Homefront" offered fully developed, three dimensional characters, gripping storylines that gave different points of view to the same situation. From the town's wealthy affluent family, to town's poorest occupants, we were able to see the different effects of racial descrimination and labor unions disputes. If TVLand ever runs another marathon, make sure to tune in; one episode will make you a believer!
