If you never got the chance to see Grand when it first aired, you really missed on a clever and witty show. You also aren't alone. Although it was a major ratings surprise its first season (NBC actually had canceled the show not expecting its strong ratings), its second season dropped off. This was partly a result of NBC's canceling the show. In an unusual step, the show filmed and aired a series finale which was notoriously final. The second season was mostly spent trying to explain the dramatic events of the series finale.
Tom and Carol Anne Smith son move to the tiny town of Grand, Pennsylvania, where Tom has gotten a job at the Weldon Piano Works. Tom is soon fired, however, after his "innovative idea for the future of the company" (making golf clubs at the piano factory) is panned by Mr. Weldon, who takes a liking to Carol Anne, how ever, and hires her. Over the course of the series, Carol Anne meets and befriends the working class Janice Pasetti.
The goings on of the small town are covered in humorous and often touching detail. A superb cast and wonderful writing made this show completely different from anything on the air at the time. It hearkened back to the sitcom "Soap" in its style of blending humor and drama as well as story arcs that lasted several episodes.
