Cool family drama.
4 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

Great family drama tv series. Had animals, 8 adopted kids & a housekeeper from Texas. Creator Pam Long had real taste to write James Marsden's character to have musical talent. James Marsden would play the guitar & sing regularly. Thought it was cute when he would sing that "Baby Child" lullaby to Gemini Barnett!
