And when we talk about what’s different about it, obviously, the thing is that the parents are alive. I think fans of the original show who’ve aged a couple of decades since it was on are in a different stage of their life. When this was originally on, I was in college and so I related with kids. Now my curiosity, even from the first moment that I just talked about the show with Amy, is about what is going to happen with the parents. How are they going to cope with this? How are they going to carry on? As a parent myself, you become very emotionally invested in how they can possibly overcome this. We spend a lot more time with the kids, so when we come back to the parents, we really have to catch up and see what they’ve been going through.”
