Some characters slip onto our TV screens quietly and sneak into our hearts slowly. We watch them develop and grow, and come to love them over time, sometimes despite very inauspicious beginnings (being eaten by a wheelie bin springs to mind).

(Here's an excerpt from "Stoned," produced the year before "In the Woods" is set, starring Scott Baio as a straight-laced student whose life falls apart after he experiments with the marijuana.)
