Diff’rent Strokes – Lifesavers

Posted by addisethiopia on February 1, 2013

I’ve just watched, Episode #94….and….

If Willis hadn’t pushed me out of the way, there’d have been an extra black key on that piano!

Well, now, these old muscles are in a better shape than the ones in your head!“ LOL!

One of the best sitcoms ever. Fantastic actors, wonderful characters – very pleasant housekeepers, ideal fairytale family. Why aren’t there any really good TV Shows on any more?

On the other note, the fate of the “Diff’rent Strokes” cast tragic – typical example of the difficulties faced by many young people chewed up by the entertainment industry, forced to mature while living a life of fame and luxury. Two of the child-stars, Gary Coleman (Arnold) and Dana Plato (Kimberly Drummond), are dead. The third, Todd Bridges (Willis) , went through years of drug abuse and was tried and acquitted of murder. Todd Bridges and Charlotte Rae (Mrs. Garret) are now the only survivors of “Different Strokes”.
