I feel like taking a trip down memory lane. :)

What's your favorite thing or things from or about the 80's? TV shows, movies, characters, toys, styles, ideals, shoes, etc?

The TV shows were so much better than most of the crap in tv now. Plus, I miss the hair.

You think that, but when I went back on Netflix to show my kids some of the old tv shows their dad and I watched growing up, I had to fast forward through a LOT of inappropriate material.

I think we're much more aware of age appropriateness on tv now and there's a much more clearly delineated difference between what are adult shows and what are kids shows.

Yeah I actually watched Blossom recently and I was shocked at how adult the situations were and what they were talking about. When I was a kid I never caught on to it or thought anything of it. But I think you're right. They might have had more adult things that were funny but they did at least have morals and values
