  • A show that didn't have many episodes yet I still remember it.

    What can you say about a show that didn't even run a full season 25 years ago, yet you can still remember watching it? There was something about this show, I'm not sure what it was but I did like it. I couldn't tell you full details of the episodes but the basic storyline was that the parents died leaving 5 kids to fend for themselves in Hawaii. The oldest were twins a boy and girl, I believe 16 or 17, they became the heads of the family trying to keep the kids together. They found a drunk in a bar, played wonderfully by Clu Gulager, and convinced him to pretend to be their uncle so that the social worker would let them stay together. This show was ahead of its time, look how well Party of Five did in the 90's.
