Definitely not. It sounds like the show had a lot to say. I wish this and Our Street, the black soap PBS had a few years later, were available. Since much of early PBS is still around (or is that just Sesame Street and Electric Company), you'd think this might be as well.

Thanks for finding those! Didn't know any were available. I just watched the first. Considering the low budget I thought it was very effective, aside from the theme song (which borders on self-parody), and the scenes of the people being shot, which were fake. The build-up of his sense of helplessness was very believable, and the actor was strong and likeable. I also like how his war experience clearly shaped him, but he wasn't written as the stereotypical crazy vet. I'm surprised that this got on the air, even on PBS.
