Do you ever watch some old show and suddenly realize how old it is and it doesn't feel that way?

I was watching some sitcom I used to love from the 90s and it still seems so modern that I had a hard time realizing its been over a decade since that show left the air. Its like...nahh that can't be... But then you realize the kids are grown and the adults are defintely looking older when you see them and it just doesn't sit right for some reason.

Doesn't make me feel old, as much as having a hard time with accepting the passage of time. If that makes sense.

  • That happened to me with the movie "Steel Magnolias" the other day. I didn't realize that movie is 21 years old. It made me feel soooo old.

  • With the exception of some of the show's sillinesses, it seems like it could be an example of any American middle class family in any modern day major city. The show doesn't seem all that dated to me yet. I'm sure in another decade it will as laptops and other modern day stuff start to become antiques. lol
