Gutless
24 December 2018 | by trescia-1See all my reviews

Exactly the gutless kind of thing you get when you put network television executives in charge of anything. To imagine what this series could have been you only need to read "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" and think, just a little, about what Malcolm X had to say about the wealthy white folks in Boston, and who they had working for them as servants. It wasn't the "Irish immigrants" my friend. But a TV show in 1975 that reflected the reality of the "upstairs" white family and the "downstairs" black servants? No way. Actually, I'm still waiting to see a show like that. Gutless. The best word for TV producers around the world.
