Living in the present reality is just too, too sad. Not for me personally, but for the Republic at large, and it just seems strange that summer is all popsicles and bike rides and the adult equivalent of day camps for me. (More on my recent summer adventures tomorrow, I hope.) So instead of ranting about all that again, how about a little fun? That’s right: the guy you know who just can’t lose. (Was I the only person who actually rooted for Ms. Musso and his sister?)
If only we could all be like Parker Lewis! And the lead actor, Corin Nemec, is still a working actor, so good for him.
This one of the only three shows I ever watched about high school, along with Square Pegs and Beverly Hills 90210. Does The Facts of Life count? (I guess once the main characters got to be in high school, it became a high school show.) I was a little too old for Saved by the Bell, I’m afraid. It didn’t have the absolute humorlessness that 90210 had, and I guess that was its main attraction for me. The show just took itself so seriously, which actually made it quite a bit like my memories of myself in high school.
I’m afraid I’m not a Gleek–it’s on too early out here in the west. I watched one episode of the new 90210 a few years ago while folding socks or something like that, and actually thought that it interfered with the comparative pleasure of sock-folding.
What nostalgic escapes appeal to you all?
