Full Episode Summary

Each one-hour episode takes viewers on a stream-of-consciousness tour of one year of the Eighties with vivid flashbacks of the people, music, movies, TV shows, products, fashions, fads, trends and major events that defined pop culture that year. I Love the 80s is MTV, Rubik's Cube, Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Michael Jackson jackets, "What you talkin' bout, Willis?", Donkey Kong, Purple Rain, "Don't Worry Be Happy," Baby on Board, Who's the Boss?, Milli Vanilli, yuppies, preppies and of course, the Coreys (Haim, Feldman, Hart).

I Love the 80s brings a cast of characters together for each show-rock stars, actors, writers, comics and other celebs past and present-to celebrate the decade's good, bad and ugly. They'll reminisce about having their whole belief systems shattered when Darth Vader uttered those fateful words, "I'm your father." They'll weigh in on important topics such as, "Belinda Carlisle and Jane Wiedlin: Who Was Hotter?" They'll analyze, personalize and interpret. They'll trash what deserves to be trashed, and rave about the 80s moments they hold dear, gabbing about the same stuff we've all been discussing in bars, offices and emails ever since the decade of greed.

Viewers will be completely immersed in each year, treated to a barrage of retro clips from sitcoms, movies, music videos, network news, commercials and other sources. They'll see a clip of a smirking Tom Brokaw introducing a new craze called Pac Man, be confronted with the horrible memory of the Members Only jacket, and marvel at the only sockless detective in the history of cop shows (Sonny Crockett, of course. OK, Thomas Magnum, too).

I Love the 80s will be all that and a bag of Reese's Pieces. The kind of junk food we can never get enough of. Like, totally.
