PBS on Saturday night seems to a British love-in. It's a little shocking to see Fresh Fields and Are You Being Served in a prime-time slot. Obviously, they couldn't afford the good British comedies. I suppose. Oooh. Waiting For God. Looks like a fourth-generation VHS copy. I don't remember it being quite so bleak and depressing...
Yes, it's Saturday night, and I'm watching PBS.
I Love The 80s! US Version! ALF! Teddy Ruxpin! Save Ferris! But no Stuart Maconie, Mark Radcliffe or Manchester linking scenes. I'm not expecting Pete Waterman to make such a big appearance either. I think I'll watch, just to see if our nostalgia towers over their nostalgia.
First thought - they don't have interviews with the people involved with the events they're discussing - just fast-cutting interviews with celebrities. Which seems to miss the point by a mile.
They're dissing John Hughes films. DEATH. And they don't seem to realise that Ducky was a New Romantic. Maybe the term didn't make it to America.
Change subject every two minutes!
Was American music really this bad in the 80s? TOP GUN! "You can ride my tail anytime!" God Bless Jerry Bruckheimer.
"FORMAT DEVISED BY THE BBC"
Tiffany! Bah, it's a bait-and-switch. "Nobody puts Baby in a corner" — Bonnie, I'd just like to point out that it's not going to happen. NEVER. EVER.
Okay, I can't take any more of this. Britain wins!
