Different Strokes--I was actually watching the first 2 eps the other night on some local station and couldn't believe some of the dialogue. No way they would have let that on the air now. For instance, when Willis and Arnold first show up to the Penthouse with Mr. Drummond, Willis goes to give Mr. Drummond a "brother" handshake. Mr. Drummondm, of course, screws it up. Arnold runs up to Mrs. Garret and does the same thing only she gets it right. Arnold asks Mrs. Garret if she's passing. And Mrs. Garret, says no, the only thing not real on her is her hair color or something to that effect. As a kid, I would have never picked up on this, but as an adult I was like woah!
Later they show Willis chilling out in Mr. Drummond's hot tub and Mr. Drummond comes in to offer some advice to Willis and puts his hand on his bare shoulder. Arnold then comes into the room and jumps into the hot tub with only his tightie whities on. How would that look on today's tv? Old white guy has 2 half naked black kids in his hot tub
