Speaking directly to fans, OG host Steve Burns gave much needed clarity to those who may have felt his original series departure was abrupt.

In the video message, Burns explains that he went to college and was able to challenge himself and use his mind. There was even a brief musical stint with Flaming Lips producer David Fridmann and drummer Steve Drozd. 

The best part of Burns’ address to fans was when he acknowledged all the trials and tribulations of adulthood that many lifetime fans have been going through.

“I mean, we started out with clues and now it's what? Student loans, and jobs, and families, and some of that has been kind of hard, you know?” he says, directly addressing viewers in the style he did back on the show.
