Despite what I said earlier, not all anonymous commenters are total jackasses. Much to my delight, my "James at 15" post earlier this week warmed a lot of people's hearts, including one nameless reader who reminded me that the theme song actually changed when James turned 16 (see above; I'd completely forgotten about this one although the scene where Kim Richards stops to talk to a boy completely came rushing back to me the second I saw it!). As I recall, things focused more on his friendships with Marlene Mahoney (Susan Myers), Ludwig "Sly" Hazeltine (David Hubbard), and Kathy Hunter (Deirdre Berthrong), which I really liked. My friend Frank pointed me to a site that has bootlegs of the complete series (and the movie from which it was spawned). I'll keep you posted if I cave in and buy 'em!
Lust to love for Lance Kerwin
