Best actor
25 June 2009 | by lousvrSee all my reviews

I agree completely with anyone saying how good the show/character/stories and mostly Frank Lovejoy were.. Just a note: Back when most program dramas, like 'Meet McGraw', were half=hour long.. The stories were tight, no excess baggage or 'padding' needed as was the case when a number of shows went to 1 hour. In particular , "Gunsmoke".. the change was overwhelming, or should I say, underwhelming. Everything slowwwwwwwwwwwed down. Sure the stories COULD BE deeper, but many weren't.. Just stretched out with lots of padding. Any show with action, became a non-action program... Well, things change.
