Ihr kennt wahrscheinlich die Anzeige für das 1987er ABC-Special The Day My Kid Went Punk, jetzt hat jemand das komplette Teil auf Youtube online gestellt und das Teil ist großartig! Wikipedia: „Teenage musician Terry (Jay Underwood - The Boy Who Could Fly) hopes to distinguish himself from 'the crowd' by becoming a punk rocker. Also starring Bernie Kopell, Albert Hague (Fame) and James Noble (Benson).“ Von Dangerous Minds:
It’s well worth a look, especially if you’re into grotesquely denatured representations of the punk movement in a defiantly anodyne and bourgeois context—but be warned: the tone here bears no similarity to the batshit hostility found in the classic Quincy, M.E. “Next Stop, Nowhere” episode from 1982—as would probably be too much to expect from an ABC Afterschool Special. There’s still a whole lot to chuckle over here.
There are a lot of familiar faces here—Bernie Kopell (“Doc” on The Love Boat), James Noble (the governor on Benson), Roxie Roker (The Jeffersons), and Craig Bierko (Cinderella Man)—and the whole thing is a bland sub-John Hughes stab at teenage alienation. The pity is that the “punk” in the episode will be well-nigh unrecognizable to anybody with any familiarity with the real thing. True to the title, young Terry Warner really does make a total switch from young sophomore dork in the high school orchestra to punked-out teen in a quick self-administered makeover session in an airport bathroom.
