Best episode

A truly unrated sleeper series. The cast was picked well. Johnny was the coolest character. Yet, Mr. Carlson brought the show to a high comedic level. The "Tornado" episode is one I truly most remember. The episode was creatively acted. and wisely played through. I remember when Mr. Carlson was calm and heartfelt talking to the young child. Doing his best to ease her from such a scary situation. Kudos to the actor and writers for a very entertaining sitcom.I was 9 when it aired.It actually scared me. It was thoughtfully written in such a cool way. His character being as misguided as he was then to pull a 180 and have the confidence in himself to do such an awesome thing.
