So well written by Supervising Producers of the show Karyl Miller and Korby Siamis.
This episode emphasized the general theme of the series and could have served as the pilot. However, there had already been two pilots for the show, but neither were successful. A new team was brought in to make the idea sharper and new actors were cast, most notably the character of the teenage sister, Patti, played by Rebecca Schaeffer. Schaffer was a refreshing actor of 20, playing 16. She had been a model and had had some experience acting on a sopa for a very short time. After the series ended her life was cut short by a stalker on July 18, 1989.
