Summary On January 11, 1973, Americans stepped into the home of the Loud family of Santa Barbara, California. Chronicling the lives of its family members, the series made them household names. During the seven months that they lived in front of the camera, viewers watched dramatic life events unfold, including Pat asking for a separation from her husband Bill, and the bohemian New York lifestyle of their gay son, Lance. This is a 2-hour compilation of the most memorable and compelling moments of the series.
