I can definitely see why a teenage boy might find himself crushing on Maureen Flannigan. She's cute. What I don't understand is how Out Of This World made it through four seasons without getting canceled.
Problem with my wife is that she looks too much at the obvious when she thinks about whether I'll be embarrassed about something or not. She knows I thought Maureen Flannigan was a cutie. I have no problem with anyone knowing that I had a teenage crush on her. (Just look at that totally awesome, late-80s look she had!) However, and this is the part my dear beloved did not think about with respect to this post, I have a huge problem with the fact that you all know I sat through three terrible seasons of "Out of This World". (I really think I blew an opportunity to go to a more prestigious college, sitting through it somehow made me dummerer). But I told Tina I would go all out with this blog so, yes, I'm owning up to it. It was an awful show! Maureen was the only thing getting me to go back (I know I couldn't have been the only one - c'mon now!).
You are probably wondering..."But Mike, why only three seasons?" "You already invested so much time, you might as well have watched the fourth season too". It's a valid point. What could have possibly happened? Did the terrible scripting, cut rate acting, or ultra-cheesy special effects finally become too much, even for me? Nope.
I wish I could say I finally wised up and just moved on but alas, that would only be partially true. No, the only thing that could have kept me away from watching Evie Garland was to be shipped out of the country. Guess what? Yup, I got shipped out of the country at the end of the third season. By the time I got home, "Out of this World" and Evie Garland were just t.v. archives and I forgot to program the VCR, sigh...
Hmmm. I wonder if I could get that fourth season off of Netflix???
