How I discovered Stephen...
Was it a dumb show?

Who knows? It's all relative.

Okay, so yeah it was a dumb idea for a show. It's not like it hasn't been done before. What about the poor mans Married with Children show with Bobcat Goldthwait? Madams Place in the early 80's?

I watched it, I was about 16 and it's how I discovered Stephen Dorff. I saw that wacky puppet, Stephen caught my eye, I became an immediate fan and have followed everything he's done since.

Sure it wasn't going to win any Emmy awards. Perhaps the producer who pitched the idea was hitting the smoke too much during the late 80's.

If it were on re-runs somewhere I'd say it's definitely worth a TiVo option.

So the show was good for something after all, even if it was only gaining him one more fan. :)
