- 39:08 Q: When I was 15 I thought the show had too much city. Now that I'm older and know more about the show, do you think it was ahead of its time with the topics it tackled? Do you think it was an unfairly taboo show because of its title? @travplaysgames

- 57:14 Q: If you were remaking the show today, who would be your cast and what would the main storyline be? @ohhhsourry
