Facts of Life

By Anonymous

A quality sitcom, the Facts Of Life was about a group of girls attending an elite boarding school, and their live-in housemother, Mrs. Garrett. The show focused on four of the students: Jo, the tough girl from the Bronx. Tootie, the fun-loving girl, Natalie, the plain girl and Tootie's best friend, and Blair the rich, pretty girl.

Much of the humor was derived from the interactions of the four distinctly different girls, and their misadventures at the school. Mrs. Garrett, the housemother, was their sage confidant. The girls looked up to her to help them solve their troubles as they each struggled with issues at school, and in their personal lives. The Facts of Life was a good show for the whole family.

TFOL wasn't afraid to tackle touchy contemporary subjects, which it always did tastefully, and with sensitivity. Viewers the same age as the girls in the show, could identify with their hassles as adolescents in the process of growing-up in the Awesome80s.

The Facts of Life was such a great show, that it remained on the air for many seasons, and has lived in syndication for well over a decade. I highly recommend it, even to viewers who don't like sitcoms. This one will grow on you, I promise.

I do love this show. I don't have a favorite episode because all of them are so well written and acted. The girls are so true to form. One is overweight and shy, one is into herself but finds out that no one else is like that, one is tough but with a soft side when broken down and the last one is just herself.
