    This was my favorite show as a kid. I wonder how sad he was to see all of his television "children" die before him.

    Has Todd done anything bad in 20 years except play himself in the worst movie of the year? Okay I'm biased I used to see him playing around the neighborhood and I was in school with his older brother and sister.

    No. In fact, he's done good. He saved that paraplegic woman who fell into a lake. But based on his involvement with hard drugs, I would've never guessed he'd outlive Dana, Gary, and Conrad.

    Todd Bridges has done quite a bit of work since he cleaned up his act. Was a regular on Everybody Hates Chris and he does a ton of one offs.
     
  11. Which now begs a response of the late Gary Coleman's frequent question to Todd Bridges.

    In fact, now I wonder what was Willis talking about? Outlived the entire main cast.

    Yep. He outlived his TV family. And for whatever he may have done in the past (and he wasn't a serial killer), he seems like a genuinely good guy now.
     
  16. The episode where the child predator was trying to lure Arnold into his home creeped me out & haunted me for a long time.

    On a lighter note, I also remember the episode where he pretended to be sick in order to meet a famous athlete.

    Yeah, to be fair he only went to court to defend himself of killing one guy while high on cocaine, serial killing is a really extreme accusation.

    He was accused of "attempted murder"! And was subsequently acquitted of all charges as a witness said he wasn't even present at the time of the shooting!
