    Great piece in this week’s New Yorker about this broadcast includes a fascinating interview with Craig Gilbert which indicates that he “seems crushed by the knowledge” that he invented reality TV.

    That Seventies Show: Reality Replay

    I enjoyed the show when i see first time. Justin’s return was handled well. You
    could see him cringing over Nora’s over protectiveness and you could
    understand his feelings. At least it appears he will be able to heal
    and get back on his feet soon.

    I loved Kitty and Nora and Kevin in the car, listening to the radio show. It was very well done, humorous and entertaining.

    It’s unfortunate that Joe is all ready to divorce Sarah…but I’m not surprised. That was a strange arrangement anyway.

    All in all, a very good showing for the Walker family.
