Synopsis

The life of the Bradford family made up of Tom, the father of whom his wife Joan died during the first season making him a widower who must raise his eight children as best he can alone.

They live in a pretty villa in a residential area in Sacramento in California.

Eight it is enough! (Eight is Enough!) Was an American television series which was broadcast between 1977 and 1981. The series featured Dick Van Patten in the role of Tom Bradford, a Sacramento journalist who raises his eight children alone after the death of his woman. Each of the children has a different character and interests, which makes Tom's life difficult but often fun. The series follows the adventures of the Bradford family while they are facing daily challenges such as adolescence, romantic relationships, school and financial problems.

Despite the difficulties, the Bradford family remains united and supports Tom in his efforts to raise his children alone. They learn to work together and help each other, which allows them to overcome the obstacles that stand on their way.

Over the seasons, children grow up and start leaving the house to continue their own dreams. Tom, meanwhile, meets a woman named Abby and falls in love with her. They end up getting married, which adds a new dimension to the life of the Bradford family.

Together, Tom and Abby continue to raise children while facing new challenges and learning to compose with the differences between their two families. The series follows the adventures of the Bradford family as they sail in the complex waters of modern family life.
