'Brooklyn Bridge', although I was a little kid when it first aired on television, has always been one of my favorite TV shows. My family taped nearly every episode from the time the show began until its life was cut short by network executives who didn't think it was good enough to continue. Unfortunately, video tapes do not have the longest life and our tapes have begun to deteriorate from our constant use. Years have passed and I still watch these tapes. My family still has fun reciting the different characters lines. Dad is always Mr. Cavaretti-- making fun of Warren Butcher. They just don't make shows like this anymore. A show with such a wide variety of topics and issues would seemingly attract wide audiences but it did not. It's hard to describe the immense connection I felt I had to the characters as a little child. I thought they were real; I loved the thought of living in an apartment in Brooklyn, your grandmother always there to cook for you when you wanted anything. It was a life that I don't have; a life I think I would have liked. My dad recently took me to New York. On our last day there we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a long but beautiful walk. Along the way I hummed the theme song in my head. A world of its own/ the streets where we played/ the friends on ever corner were the best be ever made..... Whenever I think of yesterday/ I close my eyes and see/ that place just over the Brooklyn Bridge/ that'll always be home to me./ It'll always be home to me. I have read many of the other comments that people have written about this show, and the feeling seems to be mutual. Everyone who watched the show loved it. A DVD would be great, if only there were a way.

Thank you 'Brooklyn Bridge', you'll always be home to me.
