Definitely definitely! I'd even go so far as to say Glee was a half-season wonder - the first half of season 1 was fantastic, then I started getting bored towards the end, and I could only stand a...

Totally agree - I wonder if they might have originally come up with something "too scary" for TV and were asked to tone it down? Even Eichhorst (without his make-up on) is scarier... perhaps they...

"Rich Man Poor Man" was the first one of its type I think - it was certainly hugely hyped at the time, and "Roots" followed in its wake a year or so later...

Agreed, but had a good start by coming from Neil Simon's fantastic play/film script... I saw Jack Klugman & Tony Randall perform the play in the West End sometime in the 90's, just great to see them...
