You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have ... Survivor: Philippines? Or so it is for former 1980s sitcom star Lisa Whelchel, 49, whom you may remember as the preppy Blair Warner from The Facts of Life, the popular series that ran on NBC between the years of 1979 and 1988 and also starred MacKenzie Astin (as Andy Moffet), Kim Fields (as Dorothy "Tootie" Ramsey), Mindy Cohn (as Natalie Green), Cloris Leachman (as Beverly Ann Stickle), Nancy McKeon (as Joanne "Jo" Polniaczek) and, of course, everybody's favorite, George Clooney (as George Burnett).
If it wouldn’t be viewed as complete and utter desecration of a minor classic we would say that now would be the time for a Hollywood remake of Castle in the Sky. It has everything a hit of today needs; big spectacles, flashy flying sequences, an over abundance of pyrotechnics, and a teeny tiny amount of human emotion.
