    I think this should be brought back. Kids might watch it. Every other Wednesday like it was when I was growing up.

    It's kind of fun to go back and see the old episodes from the 70's and 80's and see people that became big time actors, like Rob Lowe and Jennifer Jason Leigh. It appears there are a number of full episodes available on You Tube.

    As cheesy as they were, they didn't pretend all kids were sexless or living drug-free.

    They were just hilariously tone deaf about sex and drugs and human behavior in general

    I appreciate what they tried to do

    Oh what about "Babies Having Babies." That one was scary.

    "Five pregnant teenage girls meet up at a group counseling session and begin to discuss their situation and feelings amongst each other." Directed by Martin Sheen.

    The Day My Kid Went Punk looks good. The governor from Benson is in it and some guy from The Love Boat is the punk rocker's dad. "If you're really sorry, try looking like a real human being!" "I look like a human being!"
