what? no mention of cocaine and clubbing? wall street and miami vice?

good list though. i always figured i was a bit young to remember the 80s very well, but, if this list is entirely accurate (and i think the fresh prince ran into the 90s easily)...i'm a child of the 80s.

EDIT: In fact, the fresh prince didn't even start until 1990.

I was a part of, or recognize what they're talking about of at least 3/4's of that list.....so much of that dragged on into the first couple years of the 90's as well.....I think that list represents '85-'95 better than '80-'90....

How about moonwalking down the hall in your sweet parachute pants?


BTW, I loved the Oregon Trail, that had to be one of the best games. ;-D
