I was watching Lethal Weapon 1 tonight and thought that the girl who dives off the building at the beginning looked familiary. Checking IMDB.com I just realized that she was the one who played Woody's girlfriend on Cheers! I also realized that her career hasn't been too prosperous since then.. :D

Well, along the same lines, I saw Jennifer Runyon ("Jennifer" from "Ghostbusters") in some lame 80's/early 90's sitcom the other day. She was also in "Carnosaur". She was pretty, I wonder why she didn't get more of a career?

Micke, you must be talking about Charles in Charge. I loved that show. She also played Cindy from The Brady Bunch in the reunion shows. I would've liked to have seen her have a bigger career.

Oh yes...Woody's girlfriend in all her naked, lesbian glory. Man, she was young in that film.

Yeah, I checked on IMDB and that's what it was. A young Nicole Eggert was in the episode I saw too. They were the only things about it that made me watch it for a few minutes instead of flipping the channel immediately... :)

There were so many good-looking girls on Charles in Charge. Pamela Anderson was on there once, she looked great back then.

Guess who I saw on The Cosby Show while watching Nick at Nite a couple of weeks ago? Adam Sandler (who played one of Theo's friends). It was surprising since I saw every episode when the show originally aired.

"Charles in Charge" must have been the "Baywatch" training grounds. Erika Eleniak was on there too according to IMDB. :)
I watched an episode of "Married with children" a while ago, and was surprised to see that Matt LeBlanc was in it, playing a boyfriend of Kelly's.

I believe Matt LeBlanc actually was on a Married with Children spin-off which bombed on Fox. The episode you saw must have been the tie-in.

Daniel, I checked it out on IMDB, and you're correct. Matt LebLanc's character on "Married with children" was called Vinne Verducci, and he was the main character in the spin-off "Top of the heap". Also in that show from "Married with children" was Joey Lauren Adam's character "Mona Mullins".
Fox aired 7 episodes of "Top of the heap" in 1991 then the show was re-tooled and re-named, but kept the principal cast, and called "Vinnie & Bobby". It came back for another 7 episodes in 1992 under the new name before it was cancelled, according to epguides.com
Ha, and you know what? Pamela Anderson was in one of the "Top of the heap" episodes, and Jennifer Runyon was in an episode of "Vinnie & Bobby". :)

Didn't Pamela Anderson appeared in an episode of "Married...With Children" where Al was having this dream involving 2 women fighting (literally, and in skimpy lingerie too) over him. :D
