Yes, we’re still examining every “backdoor pilot” episode of The Facts of Life, and we’ve arrived at “Jo’s Cousin,” which features, you know, Jo’s cousin. She’s 14-year-old aspiring mechanic Terry, played by the star of Kornflake’s beloved Anne of Green Gables! We also meet Terry’s angry father (you know him from Soap and Battlestar Galactica),
