ExperianScaresCthulhu: Lsherm: That's not true, I remember this from Head of the Class, and I want to punch him in the dick. So I care a little bit.

Whoa, flashback. I remember that. Hadn't thought about it in a minute, though. I used to watched Head of the Class religiously. Was it really that long ago?


Yes, we're f**king old.

McBotulism: Anyway, the idea of a Sam/Cat spinoff is, uh, intriguing. But it needs to be on Cinemax, if you know what I mean.


I had to do some googling to make sense of this comment, but, um...

Yes. This should happen.

Isn't this guy a giant pedo?

I'm surprised he hasn't been thrown in jail yet. He must know where all the bodies are buried in Hollywood.

I have heard rumors of his casting couch. How much credence? No telling.

But he does produce better than average entertainment.

Krieghund: AdolfOliverPanties: dahmers love zombie: AdolfOliverPanties: There's also a group of people that know you as the statutory-raping predator kids' show producer from Nickelodeon.

Unfamiliar with that. Did he put his testicles all over someone?

Link 

Lots of rumors about him, including he is the father of Jamie Lynn Spears's kid (preggers when she was 15 or 16.)

So in other words, you're talking out your ass.


But then, to the vengeance vulture community, especially the "pedo hunt" vengeance vulture community, rumor is truth.

Trivia: the actress who played Lane's mom in "Better Off Dead" also played Mattie Ross in the John Wayne version of "True Grit."

And why has this thread gone on so long without any Diane Franklin pics?

I was ok with the article, but the picture upthread with Miranda COsgrove gives me the creeps. And then, I remember reading about some beloved children's show host/actor in England that is now being exposed as a molester, that went on for years and was protected by the suits in management. The same creepy eyes, positions in pictures, it's all there.

I need to go find something to do so I won't think about this creepiness. Off to Politics tab for a good cleansing.

Can't deny there's a bit of a creep factor to the guy, but I would have thought that with as long as he's been in the business there would have been more than just a few rumors. There's always some parent that's more than willing to go "Hey lets get rich the easy way and say he touched my son/daughter inappropriately!"

That said, bring on the Sam spinoff, my kid will watch it, and I can get the eyecandy.

/she's legal now, right?

I remember watching iCarly years ago, and wondering where I'd heard that name before. It hit me eventually, realizing that the fat, nerdy kid from BoD and HOTC was now the #1 producer of kid's entertainment, and that pretty much all of his shows were major hits on Nickelodeon.

I'm completely unaware of rumors about any goings on behind the scenes. More often I thought we heard of this happening with boy band and B-movie producers, but never heard a peep about this guy. If it's true, it simply validates him as a class A creep and it will eventually bite him in the ass. If it's a lie, then it's someone slinging mud at a writer/director/producer making at least something non-reality show based watchable to kid and adult audiences. But, as they say, you can only tape down Jeanette's boobs so long before it becomes apparent she's actually a woman and not a girl.

The ending of the series was poignant, so I'll ignore the fact Dan put himself into it twice (once as the almost but completely unlike Hispanic mechanic, second as the voice of the plane captain in the final scene) just for the lulz. My kids loved iCarly from the beginning, and the exit of the show kind of makes me sad.

I will say Sam and Cat is headed for disaster. Take the 2nd-billing actress from the #1 show who has an actual singing career (My mother made me listen to Miranda Cosgrove's music album once. ONCE.) but never sang on the show, put her with the incredibly-annoying, bubble-headed, undercover blonde from its competitor (who could sing but always came off like an Aguilera clone) and make them roomies with typical sitcom formulae? Recipe for failure. And a second spin-off for...Gibby, the one trick pony? It's going to be like a kid version of "I'm gonna dip my BALLS in it!"

If Schneider had true class he'd try to dig into that supposed creative bucket and not recycle elements from his extremely successful show into two other ones doomed to fail miserably. And on a different note, I still bet dimes to donuts there's a "Watching My Mom Go Black" underground tape of T-Bow and Freddie's mom around there somewhere. She's a germphobic, overprotective mom with a clog in her pipe and he's got just the drain snake to fix it...

TrainingWheelsNeeded: did he wear glasses in "Head of the Class"?


Nope. He was just the fat one. IIRC Arvid and Janice (Janet?) were the only ones who wore glasses. All the characters from that show fulfilled a stereotype. Most of them did it poorly, but Dennis somehow pulled off being fat pretty well.

It's called being a master thespian. He was actually 6'2" and weighed 110 lb.

I was an extra when HOTC was in production. Once, I was on a break outside a soundstage near the one where the show was shot, and she walked by. Luckily, she passed before I had completely changed into a wolf in a Zoot Suit. Flat farking gorgeous.

I always considered him "Head of the Class's Norm."

Of course I was young when both shows were on. So I likely discounted real-Norm's awesomeness.
