This show was one of the best on television at the time. It was masterfully done. The demonstration of a father's love for his son made this one of the warmest programs on television. Bill Bixby was the perfect person for the role he played. I can't imagine any other actor who could have done as well. Bill Bixby was made for this role. And the chemistry between Mr. Bixby and Brandon Cruz was heartwarming and very real. Their on screen relationship was such a wonderful role model for all who were fortunate to watch this wonderful television series.
And I totally agree with other writers who believe that this show should return to the small screen so that a whole new generation of families could watch it. I am sure that millions of people learned a lot about how a relationship between a father, or a parent, should be. The extraordinary performance by Bill Bixby is responsible for the realism in this fine show.
