For some reason, I decided to vaguely watch a "Family Ties" marathon on saturday (I say "vaguely" because my concentration was mostly on playing World of Warcraft). Man, I remembered that show as being much better than it actually was. Wooden acting, lackluster writing. Hopefully it's just that they just picked some less than excellent episodes for the marathon.
Still, I'll choose to remember the episode where Alex was addicted to speed as being great regardless of whether it actually was.
Also, the girl and I saw "Prairie Home Companion." As a fan of the radio show, I found it fairly compelling, but I can't imagine what someone who'd never seen the show would make of it.
