Should have been on longer than it was
JennLynn22 August 1999
This show, a spin-off of The Torkelsons, was great. But all Disney sitcoms never seem to last long. And some are actually good (a few though). A big primetime producer (ex. CBS) should have had this show on their network, with Disney the producer. Something like that. We need shows like this. Where are they?

The Torkelsons

One of the most wonderful sitcoms on Television, well acted and very cozy. This was a Great Show. Connie Ray, Olivia Burnet were good. This show had a certain charm about it. It made you laugh, cry, etc. in just a 1/2 hour. We needed this show to last longer, I don't understand why it was cancelled and not given a chance. Cheers to Lynn Montgomery for a show that should of given us wonderful stories for years to come.

Short-Lived Television

The Torklesons, and later Almost Home, were sitcoms originally aired on NBC, and later, canceled mid-season. We faithfully watched each week, until the bitter end.

I was so excited when The Disney Channel -years later- acquired the reruns (Disney went through a phase -before they started producing their own sitcoms- where they aired episodes of several good family shows other networks had dropped or canceled mid-season).

These little-known shows were much-enjoyed by my family. We were able to tape each episode as it aired later on the Disney channel and still play them, marathon-style, on rainy days. Most people are unaware that a very young Brittany Murphy got her start here (as well as a few other sitcoms from that era).

I wish they would be released on DVD before my tape wears out!

Wonderful show- why was it cancelled!

Almost Home was a hilarious sitcom that should have lasted longer than just 13 episodes. But that's just the way TV works ,I guess. I mean they'll cancel the down-to-earth funny sitcoms after a few eps but they allow cheap crap shows like Full House to run for 8 seasons. I am probably one of the few people who remember this show and the one that came before it (The Torkelsons, another wonderful, down-to-earth show). I miss these 2 shows. They used to show reruns on the Disney Channel of both shows, but they stopped that, I think.

Wonderful

I really loved this show. I was a little confused that the spin off only included some of the kids from the original show. It was beautiful portrayed. It made me laugh, cry, and everything in between without going to extremes or becoming crude. =) I really enjoyed this show. Too bad they took it off the air!

Under-Appreciated Charmer
stevej9916 May 1999
This is one of the most charming, sincere shows ever. It is about the coming of age of a young girl. There is no sex or profane language. A truly original show.

I can't for the life of me figure why it didn't last!
