First, a confession: I was up late last night working on an assignment, and I just don’t have it in me right now to write a full blog post.
That said, I’ve been meaning to address the Kate & Allie issue for a little while anyway. Because, apparently, plenty of you don’t know who they–or their corresponding sitcom–are. Could that possibly be right? Jane Curtin? Susan Saint James? BFFs who move in together?? Helloooo?
I love pop culture BFFs. This much we know. Kate and Allie are the best kind of TV friends–’80s friends! If and when you watch the clip below, note the hair. Or the sunglasses on a string. Things we don’t miss about the ’80s for one hundred, Alex.
But seriously, this clip from (I think) the pilot, should give you a good idea of the BFFness we’re talking about.
And if that doesn’t do it for you, here’s the theme song. It was a classic.
Don’t you miss the ’80s and those static end credits? Me too.
