Uncanny, how the series holds up so well with todays modern audiences, even the younger ones. I guess they appreciate a show where adults act like adults and parents love their children enough to discipline them.
Compare this with many of today's sitcoms where the entire plot consists of adults acting like low I.Q. children trading smart-alec one liner jokes. These shows have no semblemce to reality. And the acting, ugh, there is no acting on today's sitcoms.
Father Knows Best will live forever. One can scarcely believe that it was made nearly sixty years ago. Sixty years from now, it will still be delighting audiences with its realism, relevance and socially responsible themes.
If you love the series, you will love Season Five. I won't go into details on the contents, as they have been described elsewhere on this site, suffice to say that it is the continuation (and next to last season) of the beloved series. The writing and production values remain high, each episode exuding great humanity, warmth and humor. Not much more to say. An excellent and timeless show, well worth the purchase price.
