    Heartbeeps (1981)

    I just watched the trailer again and realized I've seen that robot tank before! 😲 It's from The Six Million Dollar Man when he fights the robot probe in S4E13. Here it is originally... ... and the upgraded model from S5E14: ... and then being reborn in Heartbeeps:

    T. and T.

    I... don't recall this one at all! 😲 Now I have to see if I can find it streaming anywhere; Tubi, FreeTV, or Pluto are the likely candidates to have it.

    The Fall Guy

    If you have Amazon Prime, Fall Guy seasons 1 & 2 are now available for streaming. I started watching the first few episodes of S1 and I couldn't remember if I had ever seen the pilot episode before. With those types of shows, like Fall Guy and The A-Team, there was always a lot of implied...

    Electric Dreams (1984)

    While browsing Tubi I saw this one listed and instantly the ending theme song came to mind even after all these years. It's a fun movie, especially for the tech geek oriented. If nothing else, it's great nostalgia viewing of "hi-tech" back in the 80's. And it includes a Star Trek reference...

    Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

    Oooh, I recently started rewatching this on Tubi and my memory of it as a kid does not match the reality of it. 😆 Watching the two-part premiere episode is just... bad. The dance scene with Buck is painful but at the same time you just can't help but look. I'll have to keep watching a bit...

    WKRP in Cincinnati

    It's one of the great themes from the time and I have it in my YT Music listening library. :D It's a shame that TV shows no longer have their own theme songs like the used to back in the 70's & 80's.

    Turbo Teen

    Gizmodo has a writeup on Turbo Teen that helps show just how bad this series was. 🤣 https://gizmodo.com/worst-episode-ever-turbo-teen-80s-cartoon-video-venger-1849491286

    WKRP in Cincinnati

    WKRP was one of my favorite shows to watch in syndication reruns in the 80's. Till this day if I screw up really, really big my response is always the same.... "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!" 🚁🦃 Oh, and 'Team Bailey'. ;)

    Max Headroom

    Yeah, I'm kind of wondering the same thing. The original versions were both dystopian in nature so I'm really curious if it'll just be a riff on current politics or if they going to try to take it in a new direction. I also really want to see if they use the same technique for Max, of using...

    Battlestar Galactica

    For anybody wanting to revisit classic BSG it can be found for free on the Tubi streaming service. It's free to stream with a small number of commercials. Well, small number of commercials versus how many would be shown if it was being shown on broadcast/cable TV but you get the idea. Note...

    Def Leppard - Pyromania (1983)

    Definitely one of the best albums from the era! 🤘 My cassette copy is long lost but I've still got the CD in the collection.

    Max Headroom

    Looks like Max Headroom may be coming back to TV! With the original UK version of Max Headroom going back to 1985, and with a likely air date of 2023 or later, that means it'd be a 38 year sequel with the original actor. 🤯 Yep, Matt Frewer is expected to return. This would technically be the...

    Ghostbusters (1984)

    I just watched Ghostbusters: Afterlife last night and it hit me hard when I realized that the original Ghostbusters came out in 1984. 38... years... ago! 😲

    Knight Rider

    The Knight Rider theme works surprisingly well as an 8 cello piece! 😲

    Tech Kodak Disc Camera (1982-1988)

    My Mom had a disc camera and she loved it for it's simplicity. After they killed the product line and it became harder to get the film processed she wasn't really interested in starting over with another camera so she lost her enthusiasm for taking pictures as a result. :(

    The Fall Guy

    Just saw today that a movie remake of The Fall Guy is in the works with Ryan Gosling. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/ryan-gosling-david-leitch-tackling-the-fall-guy-style-stuntman-movie-for-universal-4063325/ I don't know, I just can't see it working as a movie instead...

    Music "Punk" CD advertisement from the early 90's

    Apparently somebody at the marketing company thought "punk" and "new wave" were synonymous back then! 😆 I'm not sure which is worse, calling it "Punk" or making the actors wear those wigs.

    I can still hear the theme song! :LOL:
