    Always liked her myself, despite the troubling whiff of minstrelsy inherent in the premise. I wish she were on hand today to deliver a few of her home truths to the powers that be. ("Hey, Angie,...

    Easy answer: Throw a dart at '89-90. Try to miss "Time" and Jennifer Brackenbury, both of which were decently funny, but don't try to wade through the morass of that awful epoch, unworthy of the...

    Well, I personally wouldn't watch your new show if Les Lye himself came back to life and took a starring role in it, so that's where you're wrong. :) One can't help but wonder, if children are...

    What a shame that no one can ever leave well enough alone. One hopes this threatened project never gets off the ground, since it will tend only to cheapen the legacy of the show that bears its name....

    I was fascinated to see that the old message board, on which I once spent so much time, and invested so much energy and emotion, has now returned after a long hiatus. Let me be among the first to...

    Thank you for your honesty. My first name is James, by the way, and I apologize for not having made that clear before. If you'd like my full name, I'll consider giving it publicly and certainly will...

    "Watchability" is in the eye of the watcher, and "sickness" is not an absurdity to the person who's been sickened. I never referred to myself as "disgraced," and I am not self-important enough (God...

    I just want to clarify one more thing, David, if I may:

    She would be more adorable without a huge and intrusive watermark over her face.

    But yes, otherwise, I agree with you. She really was. I honestly got a little shiver watching her (what I could see...
