The original Entertainment Weekly website for the Oral History is gone, or just broken, but the Internet Archive has it preserved here. It is fascinating reading!

Haha!

Yeah, it's so weird. I don't know if EW just broke the page by accident, or if they purposely decided to take the content down. All I know is that the original page is broken, I hoped the Wayback Machine had archived the page... and they had! (I then donated a few bucks, because I was so grateful; I hadn't printed it out, so it could have been lost to history).

Oh no! I wonder why. Well, here are two PDFs I made of the interviews (it was too long for one file). Let me know if you're not able to open the attachments. Also, as you're reading, please share with us your thoughts. It's long, but worth it.

Thanks a lot, dear Retro! I read this "interview" several years ago and I couldn't find it anymore. It's one of the best (or the best) of all FOL documentaries. I love how they talk about the show season by season

No problem! Glad to help!

Like you, I like the season-by-season breakdown, but I also like how thorough it is. I was so grateful to the reporters at Entertainment Weekly.
