Crisp Beginning
19 March 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Though very short vignettes between commercial breaks, the information provided in this opening offering were excellent. This focuses on the early days. I had always heard that Joe, Sr. was a nasty guy, but he went beyond that. He worked hard as an Irish immigrant and decided to earn huge amounts of money so his children would never need to. His Catholicism had huge implications for the family. At one time the whole gang were the darlings of America, but Joe made a big mistake during the war and paid for it the rest of his life. We are introduced to the elder children and one daughter. Of course, Joe, Jr. was the one thought to have the greatest potential. They had a sister who had a free spirit. Also a learning disabled sister who paid a horrible price. But the real interest in this episode is Jack. We find out about PT 109 and a father's ambition and the effects this event had on big brother Joe. I look forward to the second installment.
