    Is anyone watching? The original series is being run on the Ovation channel.

    Used to love that show when I was little. Will have to DVR it as well, thanks!

    :D I loved this show! There were a lot of good songs on this show, which did well on the British charts, but never on the North American charts....

    We Got The Power

    Luckily the studio version fixed the Gene Anthony Ray/Lee Curreri vocals...while Erica Gimpel did fine without any help. :respec:

    Valerie Landsburg - Beautiful Dreamer

    This one might be the best written song of all that appeared on the show. :)

    I just got Season 2 on DVD. Shorofsky's grey face makeup not so flattering on a high-def TV. I still have a crush on Bruno. :swoon:

    I was SUCH an addict when I was a kid!
    My friend had a record of the show too that we listened to endlessly - I mostly remember the Othello musical - "I wanna own ya Desdemona" and "Friday Night's gonna be all rights gonna be right's gonna be all right now baby!"

    Me too. :)

    My very first skating exhibition was to "I Still Believe In Me" which was sung by Coco and Miss Grant.

    Snort. he does kind of have a Rockne Brubaker look about him, doesn't he?

    I liked the theater teacher who did Music Man and how it was SO DEEP that "trouble in River City" mirrored the trouble in his own life. . . .

    Leroy was SUCH a sexy dancer.

    I wish I had that channel - I loved that show and went into 1,000 depressions when it was canceled. Then it was picked up for first-run syndication, but never seemed the same again.

    Loved the concert show from London!
