But unlike most dead sitcoms, today Action is more relevant than ever, in light of, um, certain new information.
As more and more stories of Hollywood sexual abuse and exploitation come to light, we can plainly see that Action was decades ahead of the curve. The show frankly dealt with the industry's sex crimes in almost every episode. In fact, it was kind of a running gag throughout the show. Some brief highlights include:
-- A revelation early in the show that Peter's production assistant had to sleep with him to get her job.
-- A studio chief nicknamed Bobby G (allegedly based on Barry Diller) who intimidates everyone around him by whipping out his enormous penis during meetings.
