A spin-off or re-vamping of the sitcom The Torkelsons (1991). Other than the change in setting, the cast also shrank. In "The Torkelsons", there were five children, Dorothy Jane, Steven Floyd, Chuckie Lee, Mary Sue, and Ruth Ann. When they migrated to "Almost Home", there were now three, Dorothy Jane, Chuckie Lee, and Mary Sue. No explanation was given as to the whereabouts of Steven Floyd and Ruth Ann. See more »
The Torklesons, and later Almost Home, were sitcoms originally aired on NBC, and later, canceled mid-season. We faithfully watched each week, until the bitter end.
I was so excited when The Disney Channel -years later- acquired the reruns (Disney went through a phase -before they started producing their own sitcoms- where they aired episodes of several good family shows other networks had dropped or canceled mid-season).
These little-known shows were much-enjoyed by my family. We were able to tape each episode as it aired later on the Disney channel and still play them, marathon-style, on rainy days. Most people are unaware that a very young Brittany Murphy got her start here (as well as a few other sitcoms from that era).
I wish they would be released on DVD before my tape wears out!
