    S02.E03: Chapter Three: The Pollywog

    They were in last season, too.
  2. So much of this is anecdotal, so here's mine: I'm from the Midwest and would have been a little older than Nancy (I was a junior in college in the fall of 1984), but I think the popularity of the TV show Knots Landing (ran from 1979 - 1993) was largely responsible for the entrance of the term cul de sac into the popular lexicon nationwide. As such, I don't find it outside the realm of possibility that it would be used in small town Indiana in 1984. The show was massively popular and would have been on for five years by then. From Wikipedia: "The series peaked during the 1983–84 season with a 20.8 rating (finishing in 11th place) and a 20.0 rating for the 1984–85 season (when it finished 9th)."

    I grew up in the Detroit area (graduated from college in 1986) and we always called it KFC.

    Longmire in the Media: No Cell Phones Required

    we have a premiere date - November 17.
  5. I was a newly minted lawyer that year :)
  6. Those are students, presumably with parental guidance, signing documents for their education. Again, attorney here: whether a minor has the legal capacity to sign a contract is largely a matter of state law, so it can vary, but generally speaking, a minor lacks the legal capacity to sign a contract, except for those concerning food, lodging, or clothing, if the minor is over the age of 16. So the determination would be on a case by case basis, and if the person can show that the contract was coercive or signed under duress (probably not hard here) the contract could be declared void no matter how old the person was at the time of execution. Here is a pretty good explainer: http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/lack-capacity-to-contract-32647.html
  7. Copyright attorney here: I would guess A&E can (validly) claim the "fair use" exemption. They are only using snippets of the work and are engaging in criticism (boy howdy, are they) and comment. That would be enough to avoid an infringement claim.

    I had to watch it twice because DRAGON'S LAIR!!!! I used to play that all the time - would stack up $10 worth of quarters at a time. The season looks really good.

    Marian Bowles? There was a (very brief) shot of her photo when MK was first introduced making her chart (when she was trying to figure out what Ferdinand looked like). Unfortunately, it had a big red "X" over it.
