I didn't know this. Gotta look them up. Thanks!
I loved Afterschool Specials. CBS had them too. I forgot what they called them. It was a similar name. Loved the subject matters - drugs, suicide, teen pregnancy, divorce, not fitting in, etc. The topics were endless.

Too bad they stopped making these. Now it's all talk shows in those time slots.

Wasn't he on The Love Boat? The dad. I can't place him.
I love the implication that going punk negates the adjectives bright, loveable and talented.

This was my thought exactly.

If my kid went "punker," I'd ask him if he wanted help shaving his head, dyeing his hair, whatever. Warn him to be sure to sterilize his safety pins before poking them through his skin. Buy him spiked bracelets for his birthday. Ask after his tastes in music.

My spawn would probably rebel by wearing khakis and going to church, or something.
Possibly I'd confront him about the half-arsed punk hair he's got going on, and perhaps make some suggestions.
