Great!
19 October 2009 | by wolfpjwSee all my reviews

This is a very good show! I'm disappointed that it was not given a chance! I love Wilford Brimley. He is a great actor! In fact Robert Duvall is the one who helped Brimley get into acting. We need more good family shows like this one. Is "Our House" on DVD yet?; I want others to get a chance to see this show, and all of us fans to have it in our home Library. The whole cast is full of great talent, and Brimley has been in all different kinds of movies, and plays all kinds of parts. A few examples are " The Stone Boy ", " End Of The Line ", " Tender Mercies ", " The Thing ", " The China Syndrome ", " Caccoon " 1 and 2,and " A Place To Grow ".
