Michael Davis and Mark Nollinger, two dads who write and edit the family page for TV Guide, got to talking recently about the state of teen TV, the importation of Canadian angst, bikini shows and snow parkas.  Michael Davis: What do you think is the best show for teens on TV?

As you say, it bore a strong resemblance to In the Heat of the Night, which 10 years later would be a hit TV series itself.
