The me decade
24 February 2015 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Following the success of I love 1970s we carry on with the nostalgia craze with a series of 10 x 90 minutes programmes on the 1980s. Each programme examining a year of the 80s

Larry Hagman presented the first programme, I love 1980, a big year for good ol JR. Other's may think he should had dodged a bullet.

The show is in essence looks at the films, TV shows, songs, news and cultural aspects of that year aided by commentary from the people who were there supposedly. I think it was more accurate to say the Z list celebrities were shown a reel beforehand and told to 'reminiscence' about it.

I have to admit the series thrives on nostalgia, its frothy fun, brings back memories and was not always 100 percent accurate. The celebrity comments could be annoying at times and yet strangely enjoyable despite the flaws.
