    According to the guide it was entitled "Misled and Misguided."

    This is why I say all tv shows and movies should have a carseat consultant. They have every other kind of consultant...

    How about an address or e-mail address? I'd rather mail a letter or send an e-mail then call.

    When I certify (have to wait for second car) I'm considering trying it. My husband is a tax accountant and his firm works with lots of movie and tv "people"-- not the actors so much (only a few) but more producers and people. So at least a small connection... I also have actor friends, of course (who doesn't-- but I mean ones who you would actually recognize.) But they're not much help, lol. I'd have to find someone with some real connections among my tenuous connections, but once it took off I think the industry could have huge growth potential. I could fit kids to seats and supervise proper use; I could have some seats available for use or the studios could purchase their own. The carseat companies could get involved as sponsors once it became a big thing... Okay, now I'm totally dreaming, but wouldn't that be fun? LOL.

    You really just need to convince the writers and producers (and on TV the writers are the producers) for production type help on shows.

    I work in casting so I do have a ton of actor connections. I wanted to be car seat tech to the stars and hope that they would start setting a better example in their daily lives. Since so many people worship celbs (as terrible as that is) I really think that could make a huge difference.

    Yeah, wouldn't it be great if Brangelina started ERFing and EHing their kids, and talked about it? (Of course we know Suri Cruise wouldn't be because she shouldn't have to do anything she doesn't like, but that's a lost battle...)
