Meanwhile on Saturday Morning Cereal…Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This week we look back at that time when glasses weren’t yet hip, when comic conventions were still “dorky,” when nerd revenge was still cooling on the windowsill… Back before Freaks and Geeks, and WAY before The Big Bang Theory was even in a hot dense state, there was Head of Class, a little hit show on ABC in the 80’s that helped redefine the geek as not just a bespectacled awkward brainiac, but more nuanced and yes, actually good looking. To help us along in our constant quest for pop-culture relevance is guest Khrystyne Haje who played “the prettiest girl in the IHP (Individual Honors Program)” Simone Foster. We talk to her all about the show, going from geek to chic, and even her work with the USO and Bob Freakin’ Hope! Not content with all that, we even talk about The Godfather’s 45th anniversary and suddenly start giving away Bob Hope and Godfather DVDs! For free! To you!!! Now that’s an offer you CAN’T refuse! Join us, O nerdy Cerealites.
