We loved the '80s, then the '70s -- and then the '80s struck back with a vengeance. And now, a decade that is just *too* close for nostalgia -- the '90s! Some of the segments (like revisiting Twin Peaks, my fave show of all time) were fun, and it was nice to catch up on some of the cultural stuff I missed when I was in *graduate school* (Yes, I'm an old fart, compared with some here). Overall, however, the show feels forced and self-indulgent. At least they didn't try to shove a lot of porn down our throats this time.
And it's sad when the regulars, like Michael Ian Black, start joking about how this series is a career killer. Jumping ship might have been the smartest thing that Donal Logue could have done.
Note to VH1: please come up with some fresh new programming -- preferably something without Mo Rocca.
