    I meant to TIVO it but forgot. I'll try to catch the first episode online and then see if it sticks.

    Slater's obviously had some rough times since the mid 90s, but back in the late 80s/early 90s he was great!

    I was an insane Heathers fan back in the day. Winona Ryder standing in the shower. :eek: Be still my beating heart!

    Also, Ahhhhhnold isn't the greatest actor in the world, but y'all have to admit that for a good 10+ year stretch there, if he made a movie, you were going to go see it.
