Shaun Cassidy looked girly, not hot.

Heh heh! I answered fire, even though I'm kinda young (28), simply because I grew up in a third world country and wasn't exposed to all that other stuff. Instead I'd burn stuff for fun ... and yeah, the cops did come out to the house a few times to put a stopper on the fun.:D

Wherefore are thou the Love Boat? And Fantasy Island? And Fame? Things that made lonely Saturday nights bearable.

Why have Tom Cruise in Risky Business and Then not Pitty and Cragged older than Haggis's Haggis he ate for breakfast, Harrison Ford of Raiders of the Lost Ark been neglected? Why have the goodly pac man and Asteroids and Gauntlet, redeemers of nerd evenings not spent playing DND or Star Fleet battles been neglected?

Cry havok and revisit this poll with options that remember the trials of 80's adolescents with reverence.

Back in my misspent youth (before the earth's crust had completely cooled) I had serious crushes on both Joey Heatherton (look her up; rowwrrr) and Ann-Margret. I would imagine the three of us together. In a tent. On a cold night.

'Nuff said. This is a family thread.

Well, KTC owned up to Kristy McNichol (http://cache.viewimages.com/xc/76516518.jpg?v=1&c=ViewImages&k=2&d=17A4AD9FDB9CF19343A7C5B91993BDB0B8F3D4C17CAB95ED 284831B75F48EF45) so that's almost the same thing. They looked exactly alike. I think she and Shawn Cassidy (http://onewomanshow.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/shaun.jpg) were actually the same person.
