Pop Culture Nostalgia

Got some serious pop culture nostalgia? Wistful for the pop culture days of yore? Don’t worry — we feel you there. Sometimes it seems like the best entertainment happened in those wonder years — or in The Wonder Years, as the case may be.

We’re keeping a close eye on any news or updates about celebrities from vintage TV shows from the groovy ‘70s, the greedy ‘80s, the Gen-X ‘90s, and even the millennial ‘00s!

If you’re the type of person who might have crushed on Jonathan Taylor Thomas or binged on MTV’s Undressed, or marathoned Veronica Mars — we’ve got the goods for you.

We’re loving pop culture nowadays — and it really does seem like we’re experiencing The Golden Age of Television — but the entertainment world was plenty fine a decade or two ago!

Developments in Hollywood technology might be good and all — and you can pry our HDTV from our cold, dead hands! — but sometimes we miss those grainy, musty TV shows.

And don’t even get us started on now-ancient Nickelodeon shows like Hey Dude, Are You Afraid of the Dark, The Secret World of Alex Mack, and Legends of the Hidden Temple!

We also miss the thrill of movies with actual special effects instead of CGI overload — the E.T. puppet, the animatronics of Jurassic Park, the miniature sets of Star Wars, that huge boulder in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

And okay, John Stamos might be looking damn fine nowadays, but we bet you can’t find one person who didn’t like his looks circa Full House. You know, back when the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were still adorable, innocent children.

So join us on Memory Lane, Wetpaint readers!
