The title describes the show perfectly. Family deals with the trials and tribulations of an average middle class family in suburban America.
The Lawrences live in the Los Angeles suburb of Pasadena. The show primarily centered around housewife Kate Lawrence (Sada Thompson) (when being a housewife was becoming a taboo.) Her husband Douglas (James Broderick) was a successful lawyer with his own small practice. They have three children. Nancy (Meridith Baxter) married her high school sweetheart and had a baby. But the marriage hit the rocks when she caught him with another woman and she moved out into the family guest house and is trying to have it all. Willie (Gary Frank) just graduated high school and is trying to find himself. Willie usually is found with a woman with issues of her own. The youngest is Leticia (Kristie McNichol). Better known as Buddy, she is just entering adolescence and is a bit of a tomboy.
Between the parents and kids, most issues of the day could be addressed and usually was.
Season 3 contained the following 23 episodes:
Acts of Love (2 parts): Willie falls for a dying woman (Brooke Adams). Kate and Doug have their 25th wedding anniversary.
The First Time: Buddy decides to go steady with her boyfriend, TJ (Willie Ames). Kate starts to question her life.
Change of Heart: Nancy is jealous of her ex's (John Rubenstien) new girlfriend and Buddy is jealous of the attention TJ is paying a new girl.
Annie Laurie: Doug is tempted by another lawyer (Linda Lavin).Read more ›
I think this TV show is suitable to a large audience. It was well written, well produced, and shows a family with values that I wish the entire world shared. You will be hooked after a couple of episodes.
Considering that Family seasons 1 & 2 have been released, there are only 3, 4 and the half 5th season. SONY could release season three and then seasons 4 & 5 together and be done with it, and thousands of us would be thrilled beyond words. But then again, Buena Vista never bothered releasing the last season of 'Once and Again' (by the same directors and producers of FAMILY, by the way) amidst pleas from thousands of fans, Paramount/CBS has begun taking advantage of customers by releasing seasons in volumes... so why would SONY bother with our pleas? Clearly, we the customers are at the bottom of the barrel for the major studios who, ironically, survive partially because of us.

It is truly sad that she has died. I just actually posted I would like to see some type of a reunion show of those that were still alive. A coming of age; a full circle of life in a Family.
