Heartless soap opera with good actors given no time to develop any character in depth as they are hurtled on from crisis to crisis to crisis. Much soul-searching among the over-thirties about where they went wrong as they try to bridge the generation gap. Much is made of the question of just who is the nigger in the staid, suburban woodpile - organ-playing son, tripped-out daughter, killer father, chainsmoking mum? There's even a mum-knows-best miracle cure.
