People seem to be a bit surprise.gif "OMG, Traci Lords was a porn actress before she was in this episode".

But when it comes to the fact that G Gordon Liddy was an actual criminal before he appeared in the episode "Collision Course"? whistle.gif People seem very, very unconcerned about that.

Traci Lords got kicked out of the porn industry because she lied about her age, the industry felt betrayed about that.

Gordon Liddy seemed to have done everything. He was involved in the Watergate Scandal, did time in jail and than he's an actor and appears on radio. I don't know how many people actually know that. I was pretty surprised when I found out. A man with history but when it comes to criminal life I think most of it he did while working for the government.

Than again how many people know that Holly Fields, the original Jennifer was only twelve years old when she played a sixteen year old hooker? Check it out. She was born in 1976 and Runners aired in March 1989. That's a sixth or seventh grader playing a hooker completely dressed up. I don't know what made them decide it to cast a child to play a hooker but I think it's one of their most daring decisions.



I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.

I did not know that about Holly Fields' real age.

The character would still be under-age, in California, wouldn't she? Am I right in thinking that the age of consent is 18 in California? I remember this being discussed (obviously not here) regarding Buffy and Angel.

Of course, it doesn't make that much difference, plot-wise. Even if they'd had an 18 year old actress playing an 18 year old exploited runaway, the scriptwriter(s) only had one option. Pete or Mac saying yes to her would have got the series cancelled just as surely as if they'd kicked a puppy.

I love the way MacG.gif assessed the situation so clearly. The way he told Jennifer that her "boyfriend" seemed to love his car rather than her. Straight to the heart of the matter.
