A pretty decent show which tackled some controversial subject matter. In it's day, Eight Is Enough actually touched on some other issues that most shows would not touch. It followed the Bradford family headed by the father Tom played by Dick Van Patten. He played widower with eight kids. He started dating and eventually married Abby who was played by Betty Buckley. It was a good combination of comedy and drama. The show also gave lots of opportunities to some up and coming actors and actresses. Willie Aames played Tommy. He would later go on to co-star in Charles In Charge with Scott Baio. Not that I'm going to check and see if it's on TV Land, but it was pretty good.
