Vincent Van Patten,
The home where James lived with his parents was a facade on the 20th Century Fox lot. In 1979, if one were to walk up the stairs and through the front door, one would have had the surreal experience of walking down stairs to ground level facing a soundstage about 50 feet in the distance. Upon entering this soundstage and walking several yards you would have found yourself on the pool deck of The Love Boat (1977). See more »
I loved this show and made the mistake of throwing out my VHS episodes. James at 15 was such a well produced, topical, and written show. James at 15 was comparable to "St. Elsewhere" Not good rating but an excellent show. James at 16 was so watered down . whereas James at 15 could be very controversial about real teen issues, James at 16 could have been run on Saturday mornings. When Freaks and Geeks came out critics praised it as the next James at 15. Unfortunately this show didn't last long. I think because this 2000 show was written like shows were written in the 70's. Does any know if at least the James at 15 (before the series with Melissa Gildert) is available? I sure do miss this show. I found a site that will make DVDs of old series (Courtship of Eddie's Father) if enough people vote for it. I'll will try to find this site and vote.
