Stories / plots stand the test of time
on April 25, 2017
I watched Father Dowling every week with my parents when I was in high school. It was time we set aside to gather as a family. Three decades later, thanks to the DVDs my parents and I are once again making time to get together each week and watch Father Dowling.
Part of what amazed us is that the plots are still relevant, and topical. Spouses trying to figure out if they can trust one another, gambling, smuggling, Russian espionage, the vehicles, technology, and some of the props may quickly date the show, but the story lines are as relevant as ever.
