The most interesting point about this drama is that it's set in the 80's, which is a very weird thing. Usually fiction is set in either the present, or distantly enough in the past (or future), that the audience will find it different and intriguing, whereas while the 80's wasn't exactly yesterday, many of us can still remember it. None of this is meant as a complaint though, quite to the contrary I really loved it, but rather than feeling like the 80's it felt like a strange timeless world where everything from the late 1800's till the present were mixed together.

I was not that interested in the father and mother and their whole story, but the three daughters were all wonderful. Also I love the six episode length, it's long enough to do just about anything justice, without dragging on, or going off on flip-flopping, melodramatic tangents that ruin many of the more usual 10+ episode series. I really wish this length would become more common.

Quit at beg. of 3rd. Drama sucks. Screw the spoilers. Father gets fired - abandons family (caring lady takes him in off streets). Jealous mother tries to take her life (ya, forget about your four kids, and granddaughter). Oldest sis suspects husband cheating...
So. A happy family that lives with each other all their lives. And the writers want us to believe they're all complete strangers now. I'm OK with some 'annoying'. But I'll pass on this POS.

Not bad. I liked the storylines between Matsushita and Harada and Igawa and Kobayashi the best. Set in the '80s it confirmed something I've been thinking about for a long time. The world would be a better place if there were no more cell phones!!
