"The Conners" star and executive producer Sara Gilbert picks the hour-long very special "Family Ties" episode from 1987, "A, My Name is Alex." In the episode, Alex's friend Greg is killed in a car accident, leading to Alex's survivor's guilt that he was supposed to be in that car as well. Eventually he sees a therapist, and the episode morphs into a stage play as Alex recounts his life and the people in it. We sat down with Gilbert to discuss that "Family Ties" episode, as well as the tough transition from "Roseanne" to "The Conners," and also her new production company with Tom Werner, as well as her decision to leave her CBS daytime show 'The Talk."
