Don't know about being a closet ABBA fan. I know when I hear a song, and like it, I like it. ABBA introduced themselves to me on Malcolm in the Middle, when Bea Arthur did her guest appearance. They had a few songs, if I recall, through out the series. So, I think we can safely assume that the writers/directors of MitM enjoyed some ABBA too.
It's a video of the Bea Arthur scene to fernando for any curious. Always was a big Bea Arthur fan, I can't think of a bad role she played. But that's enough straying. Cool thread idea ^.^
