For some reason – maybe it’s age, maybe it’s nostalgia, maybe it’s a complete lack of imagination – we are about to be inundated with brand-new versions of shows from the 1990s.

This was the week Clarissa would have liked to have dealt with LGBTQ issues for teens.......but the producers wouldn't let her.  So she made a "statement" in her own special way (viewers in black and white will have missed it):
