Re: Welcome Back, Kotter' star Juan Epstein dies at 60
I loved the show and the characters, Epstein, Mr. Kotter, Washington, Barbarino, Horshack, and Mr. Woodman.
When it first came out, those of us in the Boston area didn't get to watch it. The local programer felt it might be too controversial for a community going through busing issues. I believe the ban only lasted a couple of episodes.
