This fabulous relic of the pre-postmodern era was posted to Defamer this week. I wonder if I could have worked in TV back then.* Everything seemed so sincere. Remember Christmas episodes in the '80s, when the entire cast of a sitcom would gather 'round the prop couch and wish you (yes, YOU specifically) a blessed holiday season? And I'd be like, "I LOVE YOU TOO, MESCHACH TAYLOR! TAKE ME WITH YOU!"
*Imagine, if you will, this alternate reality. Right now, Joanna Kerns would be in talks with Showtime. The kids would be OshKosh-clad moppets with puddin' bowl haircuts. Rather than Diablo Cody, I would be as "DiDi McCodes," a spunky female scribe plucked from the pizza-scented catacombs of the Alf production office. Laughter, love, and special guest stars are on the horizon!
