All this month we are looking at “very special episodes” from 1970’s & 1980’s television shows. The tagline was meant to inform the viewer that the particular episode was going to talk about a real-life problem in the context of the show. These are some of the more familiar episodes that us Gen-Xers remember.
The most famous episode has to be today’s from the show, “Diff’rent Strokes”, which dealt with pedophiles. Gordon Jump (from “WKRP in Cincinnati” fame) plays the part of a bicycle shop owner that is into diddling little boys. There was even a disclaimer warning presented before the episode explaining the issues being brought to light.
Someone posted the 2-part episode with the disclaimer online for all of us to watch again…
