“Rough Housing” (August 24, 1979): You probably remember The Facts of Life, but you may not know that the show’s first season introduced a whole slew of characters who wouldn’t make it to season two and also that the first-ever episode dealt with Blair’s homophobia toward a tomboyish classmate that didn’t even turn out to be a lesbian. Playwright and Supernatural writer Steve Yockey joins Drew and Glen to talk whether Blair is a monster, whether Mrs. Garrett crosses a line addressing Blair’s monster status and why Jenny O’Hara should have remained on the show.
