Question: How many actors have played Griffin on Party of Five? My friend doesn't believe me that in the very early episodes (right after Bailey's girlfriend Jill died and when Julia is first getting to know him) someone other than Jeremy London played Griffin. _ via e-mail

Answer: Jeremy London joined Party of Five in the fall of 1995 as the first and only Griffin Holbrook. Julia (Neve Campbell) had another boyfriend, though, during the first season of the show, Justin (played by Michael Goorjian). Jeremy London and his twin brother, Jason, grew up in DeSoto, Texas, just south of Dallas, and have appeared in numerous TV shows and feature films including I'll Fly Away, now in reruns on the Pax network.

Question: I have been watching the Donny & Marie Show. It is wonderful and a big success, as I see it. Where can I write to tell them what a great show they have? _ B.F., Branford, Conn.

Question: A friend and I have an ongoing argument regarding The Beverly Hillbillies television show, which aired from 1962 to 1971. Prior to striking it rich, where did the hillbillies live? _ M.M., via e-mail

Answer: They were from Bug Tussle, a fictional backwoods hamlet in the Ozarks. It must have been close to Hooterville of Petticoat Junction fame, because the Clampetts once traveled there to visit the folks back home.
