"The "Family Affair" gang moves surprisingly steadily into their 5th and final season with some wonderful episodes for a quickly-maturing Buffy (ingratiating as always). She nearly bids farewell to faithful companion Mrs. Beasley in episode 22, and tangles with Paris Hilton's mom in episode 20 ("The Joiners" aka "The Mod Maidens"). In episode 4, Uncle Bill hires help for Mr. French in the guise of Nancy Walker as Emily (who makes sporadic appearances throughout the year). Kathy Garver's Cissy seems awfully busy with school during this season and is kept rushing in and out (books in hand), though she does bring over a very pregnant houseguest in episode 9 (how much you wanna bet the baby decides to arrive unexpectedly?). Although it's sad to see "Family Affair" reach the end of its run, the worthy stories get spread about pretty evenly, and all the Davises get their share of the spotlight. Farewell Davis Family!

"I have all four seasons of Family Affair on DVD and am looking forward to receiving Season 5.
Why do I continue to turn to them and turn off cable? The shows bring back fond memories of my childhood. They're simple, honest stories with a comedic edge to them. They're enduring and stand up to more modern sitcoms replete with sexual references, four-letter words, etc.
My 12 year old niece just happened to see an episode of FA recently and was mesmorized. She asked, "Why don't they have t-v shows like this today?"
A totally honest question from someone who didn't have anything to compare the modern-day t-v shows to.
I highly recommend all five seasons of Family Affair. As a member of the television media, I believe its so important that what goes out over the airwaves and into young minds is positive and thought-provoking."
Such an Entertaining Family Show

"This show was wonderful.
I wish we still had family tv shows like this.
The whole cast Uncle Bill,Mr. French, Jody and Buffy and Sissy. It was a heart warming show and many times very touching and profound. I think children today would love it and learn from it.
I recommend this to parents for thier children, for a show that parents and the children will be delighted by.
Great memories from childhood

"Sometimes shows from my childhood don't hold up under adult viewings. Not only does this show hold up, it's better than I remember. Even toward the end here, the writing, acting and direction is superb."
