Welcome to S.O. Kyle! Yes I feel like you do abt the show. I was 14 when it first came on, and am sure that I watched every show when it was first on. I really liked the character Pete Dixon. Is the show coming out on DVD. I hope so cause I love it.

And yes I believe Lloyd Haynes did pass away of lung cancer approx. 20 yrs ago.

It dealt with many issues of its time, and many of the issues are still relevant today.

It was not korny like the Brady Bunch, and other sitcoms from that time period, it was real. The School was Interracial, at a time when most of America was still segregated, and it showed that Blacks, Whites and Hispanics shared many of the same values. This series had more of impact on society than any other sitcom.

Season 2 is available for purchase through the Shout Factory.

Fame can be a mixed blessing sometimes. I recently found out why Judy
Strangis started voice acting in cartoon shows: she was afraid of stalkers,
and animation gave her some anonymity. (She did appear in one other series,
though; the Saturday morning Electra Woman & Dyna Girl, produced by
Sid & Marty Krofft.)

When my first husband and I went to a taping of the show, an hour before it started Arsenio came out and introduced each person that worked on the show. He then brought out this red-headed guy and asked if anyone recognized him. No one did. Then Arsenio told us to look at the monitors and watch. They started playing the opening sequence of Room 222. When they got to Bernie, they stopped it right there and everyone laughed and applauded. I couldn't believe it. He no longer had that afro, but he was still really red-headed and he was talking to us and making us laugh. He really is a funny guy. I guess his character and him are one in the same person.
Very cool story. But that had to be later than 1987 since The Arsenio Hall Show didn't make its debut until 1989.

There are no episodes that stand out in my mind, but I'm sure if I saw the episodes, I'd remember them.
Remember when TVLand ran this entire schedule along with retro tv commercials one Friday evening in the early '90's?

The Brady Bunch
The Partridge Family
Room 222
The Odd Couple
and
Love American Style

I loved that lineup in the early 70s, it was the first must see TV lineup.

40s years later, I am still learning lessons from Room 222. That show is still very powerful.

I've only see three episodes. Two were very good and one was bad. The bad one was a episode with Bruno Kirby being some sort of smart alecky teenager. One of the very good ones was one episode where Jason Allen has a upper middle class girlfriend and her father looks down on him because he's from the ghetto. And Denise Nicholas was scrumptous!

No it didn't have to be later. She probably was referring to Fox's Late Show hosted by Arsenio Hall for a time after the departure of Joan Rivers.

In 1987.

I loved this lineup also. Room 222 was a wonderful show with many talented actors. It was considered a comedy/drama like Eight Is Enough. Loved Karen Valentine. Does anyone know if she is still acting?

Here he is!!! He was nerdy in the glasses , but to me he always is cute



And he guest starred on another ep. of Room 222 as well! How hot was he here!!?? Michael is a versatile actor, he can change his look very easily! As I said before to me he's always fine though!
