Re: TV Series Trivia

Sorry about the error. I also didn't know about Cique du Soleil having their own series, so revised question 14:
This *1980s* Canadian series was entirely a series of circus acts (and host segments).

Others are correct.

2. David Frost, Richard Nixon

Those are all correct.

1.Carter's character had to resign because she was literally an illegal alien and was replaced by Boxleitner's character.
14.This is probably the episode that most inspired parodies of "very special" episodes on TV.

Re: TV Series Trivia

Most of those are correct (both recent posts) except that 4 has a different surname which does sound similar. Since Hutton is a different actor I can't accept that answer as close enough.
