For the late members in their 30's early 40's this was the SHOW. I recently got the first season on DVD and it takes me back to my youth. Obviously most of the production is "Air-Playing" but wouldn't attending a real school that that be AWESOME.

Missed oppurtunities......:cry:

Yeah, I remember it. Don't forget, it was a theatrical film before it went to series. Michael Gore won the Oscar that year for the 'score', such as it was. I remember one song in the series, 'I Sing the Body Electric' - did it have anything to do with Ray Bradbury's story?

"Baby, remember my name.." - a precursor of the modern mania for talent shows with a little real life thrown in.. (and when I say "talent" and "real life" I mean something rather different from what one would usually understand by those terms ;) ) ..and the leg warmers too.....

....or the pre-Jaco Weather Report album.

Or maybe Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass?

"I sing the body electric,
The armies of those I love engirth me and I engirth them,
They will not let me off till I go with them, respond to them,
And discorrupt them, and charge them full with the charge of the soul.

Was it doubted that those who corrupt their own bodies conceal themselves?
And if those who defile the living are as bad as they who defile the dead?
And if the body does not do fully as much as the soul?
And if the body were not the soul, what is the soul?"
