It's Christmas 1945 in River Run, Ohio --- and the people behind Homefront managed to put together a holiday episode that is one of the high points of the series, in my humble opinion.
This isn't always the case with the annual Christmas episodes produced by almost every TV series out there. They often end up feeling sappy and a little contrived.
"Sinners Reconciled" is just emotional enough! We feel Ruth's sadness as she faces her first Christmas without her son and Hank's concern as he reaches out to his late friend's mother. We feel the joy as Charlie, Caroline, and Mike learn that Gina's baby has been born --- and we share in the fear when the midwife tells Gina that something's wrong with the baby. We feel Al's passion when he explains his first marriage to Anne and we share in his happiness when she responds with a visit on Christmas Day. Interspersed with all of these are vignettes of a homey holiday with the Davis family and the Metcalfs.
