Default I would consider this show a "QUIET SPINOFF"

"Family Matters". It wasn't until this I became a member on this site that I found out Family Matters was a spinoff from Perfect Starngers. I was never a PS watcher so it was no way of me knowing and from watching the early eps of FM, it doesn;t really give any hints that's it's a spinoff just a show that started on it's own. But it's defintely a SPINOFF just a QUIET SPINOFF and the consistency of Harriet working for the Newspaper Company as a elevator operator on PS and FM defintenly connects the two shows. I was surprised to find out FM was a spinoff

I swear Solomon, you make up your own terminologies for shows and spinoffs.

I knew it was a spin-off because I used to watch PS. Harriet was on that show for a few years.

Dont ever consider the so-called TV Books as gospel, they are often wrong and never list pilot's for tv shows which is a travesty.

The old TV reference books used to list the pilots but you could only find them in the library.

The point I was making was that several members on this board tried to debate TV Topics by stating Websites as their source of Info and I thought it was silly since the info on websites comes from BOOKS/NEWSPAPERS/MAGAZINES-lol

???????????????????

a source is a source is a source

an online source has just as much merit as a book or magazine
as long as it is accurate

i do not understand how u assume b/c a source is PRINTED OUT that it counts more than the same info on the web?

As I said before Online Sources mean Didley Poo. Those websites obviously got their info from Books. And that's the source I want. Not Wikipedia.com

?????
again im so confused here
IF IT SAYS IN A MAGAZINE that Esther Rolle didnt like CARL----- u will believe that?

BUT IF IT SAYS it online --- you wont????


hmmmmmmmm

ALSO FOR THE RECORD--- NOONE, repeat NOONE other than tvresearcher that I have EVER met seems to like CARL

we did a poll a few weeks ago, OVERWHELMINGLY carl was disliked

his character was an atheist--- Florida was religous and would never married him
he was gangly and looked like a black LURCH

im glad that you liked him
HOWEVER noone else did, that is why they ditched him when Flo came back and never bothered to mention him again, and he was not invited back for the last season
