Well as it turns out I've got loads of obsessions as of late, most of which stem from nostalgia, the 80s, and recapturing pieces of my childhood. I've got several toy collections going at the moment and will be hopefully adding a new installment of Nerd Nook Newbies to blog soon. Stay tuned for that! But in the interest of staying to the point I'm gonna write about one recent obsession that encompasses the nostalgia, reliving of my childhood, and the 80s.........
For the nostalgia impaired, like myself, it is a must watch show. I find I can relate to the characters, the family dynamic (I grew up with my great uncle living with us and he was funny and silly much like the grandfather), and of course the pop culture that defined the decade! I often find myself sitting there grinning while watching, having just been reminded of a long buried memory or 80s detail I'd forgotten about.
Even the brief intro and song pull you back to that simpler time, devoid of tablets, smart phones, and BS. You feel like a kid again, popping a recorded over VHS into the VCR ready to kick back on the carpet, drink some Ecto Cooler and enjoy some care-free relaxation!
