'70s TV Show, Family

Does anyone remember a TV show from the seventies call, "Family" . It was about the Lawrence family from California. Sada Thompson played the mom, Meredith Baxter Burny was one of the daughters, Matthew Brodrick's real life dad played...the dad. There was little girl everyone called Buddy.

Anyhoo.....I loved that show! It started a couple years after my mom died, and Sada Thompson really reminded me of her.

I just found out they will be releasing it on DVD. I'm so excited. I hope I still like it!

Do you mean this one?

Family - The Complete First and Second Seasons DVD (1976)

Yeppers :cheer:

If you pre order, you get a discount through Amazon.

Did you watch that show, Ron?
The cast looks really familiar, of course Baxter-Birney went on to "Family Ties" afterwards (must have been the next season!), and Gary Frank and Kristy McNichol were in just about every TV show for a while, and Kristy McNichol went on to Empty Nest, with Richard Mulligan.

Quite a cast.

But no, I don't remember watching this show. Perhaps I did, but I don't think so.
My Mom and I used to watch this show religiously EVERY week. I loved it.
I remember this show. I had forgotten about it though. :D
Tammy...didn't you LOVE :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: it? Didn't you cry every single week? Didn't you want to have cocktail hour with Mr and Mrs Lawrence (Doug and Kate, I think)?
I'm pretty sure I had a crush on somebody in that show, but I don't recall who....LOL! :lol:
A friend of mine has loaned me Season One and Two and I am getting re-acquainted with it. Probably my favourite "family" show of all time, a program a little ahead of its time given some of the issues it dealt with. It's just too bad that Kristy McNicol has had her health issues , Gary Frank has disappeared from sight and James Broderick died far too young. [/b]
I've watched my set of dvds of it. I love that show. It never fails to bring a tear (of sadness or joy) to my eyes.

It was a great show. And yes, James passed way too soon.
I loved that show,I named my daughter Kristy after Kristy McNichol.
