I've never seen the 1986 season, I'll get there eventually, but I'm way back at the start of 1983 currently.
It seems to get panned by the PCBH community, is it really so poor?
No. The opposite of poor really.
Slowed down a bit but now up to episode 28. Lizzie with yet another classic moment in 27 as Doreen runs in to tell them all about seeing Vera kissing a man.
Lizzie: Did he have a dog?
Doreen (With a strange look on her face): Why???
Lizzie: Because he must of been blind!
