pDid anyone see the premiere of NBC's "First Years" last night? I thought it was a so-so show, but it did have a scene that mentioned peanut allergies! At a restuarant, a young lawyer started choking, and his friends were worried because he was allergic to peanuts and may have eaten them accidentally. It turned out he was faking an attack, he was just trying to get the attention of a doctor he wanted to serve papers to. However, the allergy did get national exposure. Maybe it wasn't good, though, since he was faking an attack. Maybe we should all contact NBC and tell them in a future episode, maybe they could show the seriousness of the allergy through the character who has it./p
