Is anyone else watching this show? I have to admit I am. If you were a kid in the 70s, you’ve gotta remember the music, the styles, and the attitudes. I mean, this is not the type of show I feel comfortable talking about at work.
Many of the people I work with weren’t born or don’t remember tie-dye, peace signs, the smiley face (before it became an emoticon), and shows like The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game, and Love American Style. Gas lines twice that decade in 1973 and 1979, riding in the back of mom’s station wagon, going to the drive in, and watching black and white TV? What about the Vietnam War, Watergate, Apollo and Skylab? Hippies and women’s-libbers? Pet rocks, bell bottoms, streaking? What an era. I could go on an on.
Steve thinks I’m nuts for watching but it really is a good show… well acted, interesting plot lines, and great dynamic among the characters. it’s kind of like an adult Wonder Years. Anyway, it’s summer… what else is there to watch?
So, is anyone else out there watching? Would love to hear your thoughts.
