  • It's been 24 years since this has aired

    I think it's time someone left a comment on tv dot com.

    While tripe like "The Vampire Diaries" have 300 reviews within an hour of airing, this classic goes 24 years until someone takes the time to leave one stinking review.

    I decided to check this out after watching the first season of the new House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey.

    Fans of the current version of HoC will appreciate just how clever the original was. Everything seems to fit very nicely, and everyone is perfectly cast, especially the cocaine snorting Roger, who you'll recognize as Peter Russo from the current incarnation.

    I look forward to watching the other 11 episodes of this ahead-of-it's-time series.
