  • A breakthough episode!

    Before Archie Bunker! Before EastSide/West Side!, While the south is under seige, the series has tackle an issue many television shows has ignored and that is Racism! The story centers around a African-American boy name Scottie. His eyes were injury in a chemistry accident and had to be blindfolded. Davey and his father tried to break Scottie's racism. I can never forget the scene when the blindfold is finally removed and he lashes out at Davey for being white, He stormed out of the office, leaving Davey in tears. I believe that it's one of the best 15 minute episode of the series. An issue that is tackled long before any establshed show.
