Even though I’m not a hardcore fan, this article really digs into what I admire most about this show.

I would like to counter that having Patrick Duffy for a leg set up a funny and very specific joke about Step by Step. I suppose he could have been replaced with Suzanne Somers, but that’s about it. Read more

He is obviously referring to climate change, not the 2000 election. I have no idea where you get the idea that Gore’s approach to education on the subject has been superficial or redundant.

Simon and Garfunkel did a great rendition of “Silent Night” over “The 7 o’clock news” with some pretty dark stuff. A dark contrast done so beautifully.

God, this was AMAZING when I was a kid. The Muppets, Sesame Street AND Fraggles all in one place? This was Avengers: Endgame-levels of insane awesomeness to a young 80s child.
