I loved this show when I was a kid. I think part of the reason is that it was so different from my own life. While I was totally happy with my own childhood, I must admit that living in a high rise in New York City seemed quite exotic to me. Sort of like the way I enjoyed reading stories of girls in boarding schools. I would never have wanted to do that myself but I did enjoy reading about something so foreign to my own way of life.
What about you? Were you ever enamored with something way outside your frame of reference? Even as an adult, I love the fact that a book, movie or television show can take me to a world I’ve never experienced.
