I Grew Up With The Courtship of Eddie's Father!
27 June 2005 | by BaileySEASee all my reviews

This was a sitcom in a league all by itself. It was a touching, endearing show that was real and sincere. The talking sound montages over the action were great. It was a stylistic show with a lot of class. Brandon Cruz was the perfect Eddie. It shared little with the movie it was based on. Bill Bixby was an intelligent, attractive dad with a lot of compassion. James Komack was a great co-star.It was a quiet, gentle little sitcom that was a feel good show to watch. It was nice to see a show where every one got along. There was no need for the sarcastic comic foil in this show. Too bad it only lasted three seasons. To Bill Bixby wherever you are, this one's for you!
