Ah, memories…of a time before every kid had Nickelodeon and videos and computer games to keep them company. Back when, if you were wanted an afternoon TV fix, you had to turn on PBS and watch whatever they had for you. Which, for a brief, beautiful period in the 1980s, was the regrettably long-lost science show 3-2-1 Contact (best remembered, I guess, as the home of The Bloodhound Gang). The low-budge and now kinda outdated affair was produced by the folks behind Sesame Street, the Children’s Television Workshop, who still haven’t put this brilliant program out on DVD. For shame!
