  • The focus is more on slander rather than teen pregnancy

    While the episode's title is "Children's Children," the story line actually focuses on an unscrupulous newsman who literally ambushes a teen home director during a TV interview.

    I was impressed that the person who winds up saving the home is its seemingly most irresponsible member, a 19-year-old who would rather go to parties rather than attend to her infant child.

    This episode shows more evidence of what seems to be a very naive Jonathan Smith. In "The Torch," he tried in vain to convince that vengeance was not the way for a Jewish activist whose heart transplant came from the killer of his teenage son. In this episode, he again tries to convince a teen mother not to strike back at the reporter even though his actions now threaten the existence of the only home that took her in.

    Early work from Mullholland Drive's Scott Coffey.
