Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
In its second season, the warmhearted Family Affair charmed its way into the Nielsen ratings' Top Ten. New York engineering consultant and world traveler "Uncle Bill" Davis and his veddy British gentleman's gentleman, Mr. French, fully embraced the prospect of raising Davis's orphaned nieces and nephew -- teenage Cissy and six-year-old twins Buffy and Jody. The stories this season are less about Bill (three-time Emmy nominee Brian Keith) as reluctant bachelor father and more about the ties that bind this accidental family. Although Mr. French (Sebastian Cabot) flirts with the prospect of returning to England to rejoin his former employers in "Go Home, Mr. French," he, too, finds that he has grown attached to the children. Other memorable episodes include "The Other Cheek," in which Jody (Johnny Whitaker) is menaced by a girl bully; "Our Friend Stanley," in which Buffy (Anissa Jones) and Jody befriend a handicapped boy; and "Family Reunion," in which the family makes an emotional trip to the children's small Indiana hometown. And it doesn't get any better than hearing Cabot read Winnie the Pooh to the children in "Family Portrait" (he had served as narrator for the Disney animated featurette Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree). Guest stars this season include Lee Merriwether as the stunning object of Bill's affections in "First Love" and, in "Somebody Upstairs," a lively Joan Blondell as a Broadway performer who befriends star-struck Cissy (Kathy Garver) and Buffy. Family Affair is less broad and more low-key than, say, Full House. To quote the famous Gypsy showstopper that Buffy performs, it will entertain you and make you smile.
