    I was sitting in my basement, it was like 86 or 87 I believe. I remember I was watching Poltergeist on channel 7 with my dad and his friend. Well actually I was only 6 or 7 at the time and I was playing with my Gi Joes and they were watching the movie, then I remember they kept breaking into the movie with breaking news updates aboout the girl in the well and then they finally got her our right as the movie was ending. I was more scared of the well than the movie.

    Well, I was 3 or 4. I don't remember it, of course, but I have read about it. Amazing she survived.

    My family was watching the Beauty and the Beast television show, and I remember being a little annoyed that the show kept getting interrupted by the Special Reports. Remember how huge this show was at the time. It would be like Lost getting interrupted today.

    I'm still surprised they did that, because it wasn't an incident comparable to Three Mile Island that could potentially affect thousands of people. It was one person. Had it been reported on the late night news (it was anyway), instead of being forced-fed every few minutes, it wouldn't have made any difference.

    My mother used to watch Beauty & the Beast show too. That aside, I remember seeing it on television, their talking a lot about it, but I don't remember what I was watching or anything like that. Maybe I saw it in the way Yodamite did, news reports every other hour or so. I know I found it scary that she fell down a hole and kept imagining it, pretty much scaring myself. When that happened, I was either six or seven. I can't recall what year it was right off. Wasn't it 1987?

    I was only 4 so I don't remember that whole incident.

    I do remember that it was made fun of in the Simpsons episode "Radio Bart".

    I wasn't either born or just a baby so I won't remember, but I do remember seeing a TV movie based on this, I think that was in the early 90's it came out

    I was watching it on T.V. over at a friends house, there were several of us kids there, and we were trying to cross as many fingers and toes as we could. I forget how old I was probably 6 or 7.
