I think the rteturn of these fine actor was terrific! It was a great way to memorialize the old show and albeit the perkiness of the old sitcoms were not present, the fact they "WERE BACK" was a sheer spectacular moment of nostalgia for us folks who were at that age of teen life who had the questions and experiences that they were easily able to relate to the "Facts Of Life" show! It was able to penetrate issues and things about life only young people can relate to. Awsome!
All generations will love those old programs. I guarrantee it!
