Premise

A nostalgia-drenched show about 1960s life for a Philadelphia family, frequently featuring cameos by 21st-century entertainers portraying singers and other figures of the period. Daughter Meg is a regular dancer on 'American Bandstand.' This isn't a surprise, since Dick Clark was one of the executive producers. Though generally well-received, critics carped about inaccuracies. The biggest one: 'Bandstand' moved to L.A. in February 1964, less than three months into the 'Dreams' time line.
