User Reviews

One of the best ever ... but viewers weren't interested
21 March 2002 | by stlouis6See all my reviews

Goldberg's "Brooklyn Bridge" is one of the best television series ever made. But viewers ignored it, as did so-called watchdogs who whine about there not being high-quality programs for families. The cast, led by Gerard as the oldest son, was excellent. The stories about growing up and trying to get along with an extended family were down-to-earth and sometimes poignant. If it comes back to cable, watch it. Every episode was solid, with most rising to a level untouched by TV. "Brooklyn Bridge" should be considered classic television.
