The TV Show “Fame” goes to the Land of Oz in the episode, “Not In Kansas Anymore”

My sister was a big fan of the movie and the TV show “Fame.” I think in her adolescent fantasies she was plucked from her New Jersey suburban high school and thrust into a metropolitan school of the performing arts. Because she could dominate the TV, I would often be stuck watching “Fame” with her. Does watching a show against your will eventually turn you into a fan? It sort of does. By the end of season 1, I was eagerly looking forward to season 2 and was I not disappointed, because in episode 19 of season 2, Doris hits her head and in her injured state dreams that she has been transported to the Land of Oz.

I loved “The Wizard of Oz”, so this was the perfect episode for me to enjoy (I did not foresee a Star Wars crossover) and it quickly became my favorite episode of the series. If you have never seen it, you do not need to scramble to watch it. A very large part of the episode has been uploaded to the web for your viewing pleasure.
