Eight Is Enough #1 - "Eight is enough to fill our lives with love...."



"Eight Is Enough" is a late 70s/early 80s one hour family comical drama. The series surrounded around the large Bradford clan. Dad Tom (A columnist for a Sacramento, CA newspaper), mom Joan and their eight kids. The second season opened with father Tom becoming a widower but soon found new love.



Season 2 & season 5 Intro:





The show also starred a young Willie Aames ("Charles In Charge", "Zapped"). The show ended in 1981 after 112 episodes. It was one of a few hour long shows to use a laugh track. Also, two reunion movies followed - "Eight Is Enough: A Family Reunion" in 1987 and "An Eight Is Enough Wedding" in 1989.

Not at the moment, no. All the season are on DVD. However, beginning with season 2, they are MOD.

Adam Rich, who played the youngest son on the show, went on to have so many problems in life. Drug problems and so on. He almost died of an overdose. DUI's. He was arrested for burglary. His TV dad, Dick Van Patten, had tried helping him a few times over the years.

Ralph Macchio actually joined the show in the fifth and final season. He played the stepmom's orphaned nephew who came to live with them. Mark Hamill was also in the pilot episode as one of the kid's but was replaced.

Star Dick Van Patten never got a call that the show was cancelled. He read about it in the newspaper. He was also voted number thirty-three in TV Guide's "50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time" in 2004.
