Very memorable and touching show for both kids and adults.
23 January 2006 | by gcannavoSee all my reviews

I saw this After School Special thirty years ago, and I still remember how it touched my heart. It is about a grandfather's love for his grandson and visa versa. The family happens to be Italian, and the culture is very well represented. The acting is outstanding which makes you care about the characters in a very short period of time. Everyone in my family cried while watching this show. My brother and I recently reminisced about the show and how good it was. I wish we could see it again and maybe get a VHS or DVD copy of it, so we could hand it down to children and grandchildren. It is that good! They don't make shows like that anymore.
