Internet Win of the Day: Facts of Life Edition

Just something I thought was awesome for reals …

Because it’s only Tuesday and it’s true and ’80s flashbacks, etc.

Fun facts (according to IMDb):

  • The Facts of Life, which premiered about two weeks before I was born in 1979, was a spinoff of Diff’rent Strokes.
  • It lasted nine seasons and 209 episodes.
  • Alan Thicke was one of the writers of the theme song.
  • It gave us 17 episodes of George Clooney as George Burnett, whom we meet here in this clip from 1985’s “Into the Frying Pan,” complete with a reference to the far-off 2006 and a couple of instances of racial insensitivity.

Hey, you take the good with the bad.

The point for today’s Internet win goes to Jen Cook (@JenCook), who describes herself as the real Liz Lemon, which was enough for me to follow her. I haven’t regretted it.
