Thanks. It still is sad to see the photos of workers replacing the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios" sign with "Lorimar Telepictures".

That brings back memories for me as in the early 80s, I stayed with a friend that had an apartment in Los Angeles on Washington Street across from Hughe's Market. I was down to look for work, but probably did more partying than actual job hunting. Anyway, the MGM lot was down the street and I remember passing it. I noticed that Lorimar was there. My favorite show at the time was Dallas.
I just remember taking a temp job and one of my co-workers at the time was telling me about his experiences working on the Lorimar lot and all the characters in the show.
