    That’s exactly right–Clarissa Blossom and Who’s the Boss in one. This show isn’t very intellectual but it is the most enjoyable thing about tv these days. Love me some Joe Longo.

    Are you kidding!? I love that show. It’s the only show that brings me back to my happy place. Blossom, Clarissa Explains It All and Who’s the Boss in one! I don’t want to watch TV to see more upsetting drama, I want to see something light hearted that makes me feel like the world is still a good place. This is the perfect show for that.
