"Spencer" gone way too soon
I remember "Spencer" in 1984 being wildly funny and after just a few episodes there was talk on shows similar to "Entertainment Tonight" (maybe it was that show) that Chad Lowe seemed to be as talented as his brother Rob Lowe. Then I heard after only about 7 episodes Chad wanted to get out of the show right away to do movies.

I originally thought it was because he knew the critics were talking about how great he was on the show and wanted to get out while he was hot and before he was typecast as only a t.v. star, but it could be because doing a t.v. series was much more time-consuming and demanding than he wanted and figured he could get movie roles right away with his new popularity. The show had a completely different feel to it without him , I like probably many others only watched 1 of the 7 more episodes with the new actor.

It seems like it was two years before Chad finally continued his acting with a t.v. movie. I might have seen something he was in but didn't know it was him after that, but I didn't notice him again until his wife was giving her acceptance speech for best actress in 2002. I had forgotten about his show "Spencer" until then and thought if he had stayed on that show he probably would have had many awards by then for his t.v. work and could have done movies during the summer. Hope to see it on DVD.
