3 "Corky singing 'Fight the Power' by Public Enemy'" in and of itself was stealing The Isley Brothers's credit (though it WAS to the recording of Public Enemy). (the rest of the comments are from jumptheshark.com) More comments: Kellie Martin was a little too saccharine as Becca.Corky singing "Fight the Power" Flava Flav shoulda kicked some retard ass!This show REally is whaT wE ARe watching all the Damn time. Damn, everyOne WaNtS-wHY, I caN't finD -Really, nO Man Even knows why this is so popular.Please, don't call people with down syndrome retards. (all of the above posted by others from the late Scottish Site, aka "Jump the Shark".RIP -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on January 17, 2015, 12:56 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 It's good to know I'm not the only one who remembers Corky singing Fight the Power by Public Enemy. What was it with ABC and all of these characters burning down restaurants in the early 90s? Corky burned down his parent's restaurant and Urkel obliterated Leroy's. For me, the show either boned when Corky crashed the car or when he shot the plumber with his dad's gun. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 14, 2014, 10:04 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I can't believe nobody voted for the "Jesse has AIDS" storyline, although the comment about it down below hits the nail on the head. What a depressing gagfest this turned into with that, and then to have him get it from unprotected heterosexual sex. Yeah, him and Magic Johnson, and everyone else who claims that is full of it. I didn't buy that downer crap then and I don't buy it now. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 10:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 This show and "A Different World" encapsulated the sucky early 90's transition from the late 80's- the goofy early politically correctness, bad fashion, music etc. They look even more horrific now. Boned Boned Boned. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on December 21, 2011, 7:34 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 This show was such a icon of the early 90's culture: The Fight the Power dance, talk about HIV and AIDS, the PC feel good story of Corky, etc. It looks really, really dated today. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 18, 2011, 12:54 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 All I remember about this show besides what others have written so far is that my friend loved it precisely because it was so depressing all the time. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 8, 2011, 7:10 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

10 Remember the episode when the father knocked up the mother. They went and got tests to make sure the next one wasn't going to be retard. When they found out the kid was normal they celebrated. Man, talk about making the Corky retard feel bad! -- Submitted By: (Poopsprayer) on May 29, 2011, 10:12 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I still remember the episode where Tyler died. In one scene, Corkey goes to the scene of the accident and some kid looks at the tree Tyler hit. The kid starts crying about how the tree will never be the same. I remember being in disbelief at the kid and how insensitive he seemed. Granted, the kid probably didn't know Tyler died. Looking back, they probably intended the scene to be symbolic. However, the way it played out just didn't set well with me. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 11, 2009, 9:43 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Are you kidding me? This show should have been released on DVD in its entirety (including any episodes from the fourth season that may not have aired because they were pre-empted by H. Ross Perot infomercials). LGO was a great drama that touched on a number of issues (Down syndrome, AIDS awareness, drunk driving), especially in season 3. Great acting all around, including a few who played recurring characters (Troy Evans, Kiersten Warren, Lance Guest). If you ever see Herbie Pilato, tell him he should have thanked me for the Episode Guide section of his book about LGO, "Life Story"! I wrote and posted that way back in '94!!!! -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on September 18, 2009, 9:29 am - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Yeah, the show had a real life Downs syndrome actor (Corky was the best thing about the program), but the other characters were thin and hollow (even Kellie Martin); gruff dad, longsuffering mom, socially awkward daughter, etc. Then Kristy's friend, Chad Lowe, gets HIV and later marries Reese Witherspoon. Oh, who cares?! Show started as television's first honest exploration of the trials of the mentally retarded and then turned into an A.I.D.S. benefit. Get the newspaper ready, folks, 'cause it's fish-wrappin' time. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 15, 2009, 2:41 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
