We gave it a B

It’s come up at parties, weddings, depositions: You were a Silver Spoons fan, and you regret it. Don’t! The sitcom about a precocious cutie (24‘s Ricky Schroder) and his rich pop (Joel Higgins) is only half as cringeworthy as you recall. The set lacks EXTRAS, but it does reunite the old gang: Jason Bateman as thug-in-training Derek, the esteemed John Houseman as Grandfather, and Port Charles‘ Erin Gray as Kate (ahh…when it was still cute to shag your secretary). Dated? Oh my, yes. But still worth the crush. B
