The series was produced in the United States, and nearly all of its episodes were set there, but the animated opening credits show cars driving on the left-hand side of the road. See more »
I watched this show infrequently throughout the 1970's but some of the episodes continue to haunt me today. They were thought provoking and subtle -- two elements that are rarely found in a television program today -- and typically well-acted by major stars of the day. I only wish these were available on DVD. I'd like to watch it again, with the perspective of 30 years of maturity.
Perhaps the best episode featured William Windom as Dad, his son Chris and daughter Grace, chatting around the family kitchen table about things that needed to be done. It wasn't until you saw the view from the kitchen window that you realized who "Chris", "Grace" and "Dad" really were.
