You Take The Good, You Fire The Bad, You Add One Jo, And There You Have

Sort of the original cast of The Facts Of Life (the first four episodes featured actress Jenny O'Hara, as sass-talkin' young teacher Emily Mahoney)

Summer 1979

Here, the show tackles the sensitive topics of hidden lesbian love, African-American children with growth disorders, girls who grow up to put hot sauce on the tongues of their innocent children and hold up video stores, and too much eye shadow ("but it's the look that sells!").


  1. FACTS will be part of my big NBC 1984 Fall Preview Post in a few weeks.
