About I Love The 70s Volume 2

You don't have to be one of the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew to figure out that the 70's was the most outta sight decade ever. that's why we're going back. You dig? VH1 is returning to their successful and hilarious I Love the '70s approach for I Love The 70's: Volume II!

I Love the '70s: Volume II will take viewers on another funky, fun-filled ride through the music, movies, TV shows, products, fashions, fads, trends and major events that defined pop culture each year of the decade. From American Graffiti to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Watergate to Mary Tyler Moore, Billy Beer to the Hustle ...we once again tap our collective memories to cover the sublime, the ridiculous, and everything in between.

A new crop of comics, rock stars, actors, writers and other celebs past and present will weigh in on the '70s experience. They'll discuss the important questions of the decade: Why won't Mr. Whipple let us squeeze the Charmin? Which personality will Sybil show up as today? What's up with Columbo's eye? And most important of all: tastes great, or less filling?

Viewers will be completely immersed in each year and treated to a barrage of retro clips from sitcoms, movies, network news, commercials and other sources. And it won't be just TV, music and film. It'll be cars, junk food, fashion and everything else that went into making the far out tapestry of pop culture that was the '70s.
