FX in the early days had interesting, low-key and fun shows like this: Sound FX, the antiques show and especially Breakfast Time.
To me, Breakfast Time filled the void between public access and mainstream network programming. It had the budget to go on location and interview some great guests, plus all the celebrities that just 'dropped-by', but like one other person commented, it was shot in a (large) loft apartment and not a studio.
I did manage to tape 1 hour of a episode because Jill Sobule was on there singing "Merry Christmas from the Family" among her other hits of the day. They were all good shows though and in retrospect I should've recorded them all for prosperity. Like Chevy Chase said in 'Dirty Work' after betting against the Harlem Globetrotters: "Hindsight is 20/20 my friend." Anyway, I don't think there will ever be another like the shows they had during the early days on FX and that's too bad. It was like being with family (you liked... even Bob the Puppet) everyday and looking forward to the craziness and spontaneity that seemed (even if it wasn't) unscripted and off-the-cuff. Good job guys! You are missed...
