When I was growing up Banacek was my favorite tv show. He was so cool, I wanted to be just like him, and he used to fight with and make out with Christine Belford whom I was totally in love with as an adolescent. The show ended after two seasons but it completely altered my perception of the world and how it could be and to me, how I should be. It was a tragic mistake because tv is a bad role model for any child but there it is.
