A Guy Named Goo

Grrr determined!

Lately I have been on a quest to watch all of the shows that I loved when I was a wee Goo (defined as between the ages of about six and ten, apparently) and see if they still hold up now that I'm an adult. Blame Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide (a show very much like Golden Era Nickelodeon shows) for bringing Mark Weiner as a guest star and sending me into paroxysms of nerdy joy with recall of Weinerville.

So far, watching Are You Afraid of the Dark?, it actually has stood the test of time very well (well, except for the absolutely atrocious acting that gets better as the show goes on). It got away with a lot of things that would never fly on Nickelodeon today, but what do you expect with the kids' answer to Tales from the Crypt?

However, my ultimate goal, the thing I will not die until I manage to accomplish it, that I have been stonewalled in my every attempt to succeed, is to see all of Space Cases again. Maybe me not being able to find it is the universe's way of telling me not to watch it and ruin one of my fondest childhood memories, but come on! The show starred George Takai and Mark Hammill! It fucking rocked! And Firefly fans, as an added incentive to keep your eyes peeled for it for me, the show starred a then-thirteen year old Jewel Saite in her first starring role.
