I was always a huge fan of the Cosby Show when I was a kid. It was a wholesome enough show that I was allowed to watch it, but it was actually really funny. It's sort of sad that reruns can't be shown because of… Well, you know.
I don't know how to feel about television shows being pulled off the air because we find out that the guy involved in it was actually a bad guy. I mean, if it's a good show, why shouldn't people be allowed to watch it? I suppose it also depends how bad a guy we're talking about.
My husband and I were recently talking about what happened to the actor who played Pee-wee Herman. For those of you who are painfully young and don't remember it, he was caught in a porn theater doing the kind of private thing that people sometimes do when watching porn movies. And because of that, his very clever TV show Pee-wee's Playhouse was pulled off the air.
I always thought that was sort of unfair. Yet at the same time, the actor did a pretty dumb thing. He took a chance, he got caught, and he paid the price.
My husband argues that he was probably desperate, because what woman would want to sleep with Pee-wee Herman? Frankly, I think there are probably plenty of women out there who would've happily slept with a rich celebrity, even if that celebrity was the guy who played Pee-wee Herman.
