    Now that you've watched it, how does today's Plaza Inn compare to Walt and Hench's vision?

    Yes, even Walt would make the occasional goof, even on-camera.

    (It's a 1/4" scale model, not 1/8").

    Walt made constant gaffs on camera, it was part of his charm

    Seems every time he has a female co-host on that show he makes some comment or other that, through today's standards, seem very sexist or somehow inappropriate.

    Has anyone seen the one where he shows off his cast member badge hidden inside the lapel of his jacket? "Badge number 1, secret service!" he was such a big kid.

    Can't say i have had breakfast there, but the chicken....drool. Living in the south I get southern fried chicken, but it just does not compare to good old Plaza Inn Chicken and mashed potatoes.

    They do now. In the solarium, there are several bird cages, with birds inside. Of course, the birds are fake. But there are birds.
