OMG, it's frickin' Balki!!! I like the way his career summary is padded with things like "Meego" and "Step by Step" (what the heck, I have never heard of those). It's like putting sawdust in meatloaf to bulk up an insubstantial amount of the good stuff.
There is a site out there where people make up Balki themed fanfics. :thud
For the sake of any shred of street cred I might have left I hope I'm wrong, but I think Step by Step might have starred Patrick Duffy and Suzanne Somers and sundry child actors as a blended family. :lol
:omg Fluff, NO!!!!! :rofl :rofl :rofl

Ooooh, Balki getting in Omarosa's face and telling where to stick her attitude... THAT is something I'd enjoy seeing! :yay :up :banana
Balki would be the main reason I will watch this season.
Fluff- this will make you feel better-- I actually remember Meego. He played some sort of genie, or something..... So, now I'm lacking ANY cred-- not just the "street" variety.
I loooooved Balki!!! I actually had a crush on him when I was a kid!
