"I Love the 70s-VH1"
Mon Aug-25-03 05:01 AM by johnbook

          

VH1-I Love the 70's

i don't know if anyone else plans to watch this, but i will. i saw the "I Love the 80's" shows in reruns and they were great. i'm a sucker for nostalgia and people remincising on pop culture.

i wasn't alive in the 70's, so it might be educational. also, it should be pretty entertaining.

i'll post my thoughts about the show under here and invite whoever else watches to do the same.

when i first heard that they were doing it, i was thinking it was a abd idea... i mean, "I Love the 80s" was so great because it was the first program that's been dedicated to an extensive examination of 1980s pop culture. the 70s, however, have already been fully examined, revived, parodied and played out.

when they started running ads showing Mo Rocca and Hal Sparks, my bad feeling got worse. these cats are like 30-33 years old. what are they gonna say about the 70s?

the New Yorker review of it said that it seems to be aimed at Gen Xers who were babies in the 70s. they don't even mention Watergate throughout the 1973 show AT ALL!

i'm gonna watch it, though.

they had raven simone and a few other people that weren't born yet or were too young to remember. they had to be like 2 when some of the stuff they were talking about came out. it was a great series though.

you're right, but i find both hal sparks and mo rocca entertaining and i can barely remember 70's stuff myself, so i'll definitely be watching.

27. "It was good"
In response to Reply # 19


  

          

Like you posted, it seemed to be aimed towards kids who grew up in the 70's, but too young to experience things like Watergate. And alot of the younger commentators in their 20s' gave their point of view on things that lived on past the 70's, Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, certain boardgames for instance.

However, for an examination of pop culture, thats enough of a base to work wit . And the biting commentary, while not as razor sharp as the 80's version, is still sharp as hell. Entertaining, its just unfortunate there's only a handful of viable decades to work with(im just waiting for the 90's in a few years).

In response to Reply # 27


  

          

Didn't she comment about Strawberry Shortcake for the 80's one? I thought wait, by the time she was an impressionable kid, Strawberry Shortcake was gone.

VH-1, or for all intents and purposes MTV, has a way of patting themselves on the back, especially in the 80's shows. You know, 1981 was a big year, because on August 1, 1981 we had...

DUN.
DUN. DUN.
DUN. DUN.
DUN, DUNDUNDUN


MTV!!!

So whenever possible, MTV tooted their own horn.

The 70's shows have been good so far because let's face it, MTV was not in existence. The only music shows you had on TV were American Bandstand, Midnight Special, and Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, and maybe the Jerry Lewis Telethon. For a lot of people, it's realizing that the only forms of entertainment you had were three channels (no one really considered PBS a "real" channel). Back then, you watched a movie at the theater and that was it. Your memories would come from the one time you saw the film, and it was over. It was the nerds who said "let's go see that movie one more time, maybe sneak in my Sanyo cassette recorder so we can memorize the lines".

Cable TV as we know it didn't hit until 1974, so it will be interesting to see if HBO (which was on for 16 hours a day) and CNN are mentioned for their impact to television.

As I'm watching the shows, it is hard to believe that for a lot of us, we grew up on three TV channels for years. My family has had cable for as long as I can remember, but "cable" channels were for the adults. We only had ABC, NBC, and CBS (although in Hawai'i we did have KIKU, channel 13, with Japanese programming that gave us shows like "Kikaida" and "Kaiman Rider").

When we wanted to know about the world outside of home and schools, it was TV that we gravitated to, and even with the limitations of three channels, we learned everything from "Schoolhouse Rock", "Mutual Of Omaha's Wild Kingdom", "Captain Kangaroo", and all the other children's shows. When the movie came on at 8pm, we went to sleep.

I'm almost positive that this series was loosely based on the old movie "With Six You Get Eggroll," in which the parents were a widow & a widower. I suspect that most people who watched the series when it was originally shown, knew about or had seen the movie.

Had they showed more of the pilot show (with the wedding, which was done before the series was created), it would show how the kids each ask their parents how they feel about marrying someone else, and what would the other parent think. It is explained that they both died. Here is a link and description:

http://davidbrady.com/eb/episodes/episode000.html

When a widower with three sons marries a widow with three daughters the result of the merger is a conglomerate family on Paramount Television's "The Brady Bunch."

In the premiere episode, "The Honeymoon," the wedding day festivities progress smoothly except for the family pets, a cat and a dog, which don't go along with the idea of peaceful coexistence. After the chaos they cause, Mike and Carol start their marriage disciplining their children before leaving on their honeymoon.
---------
You know what I find really odd though? Most of the Brady Bunch episodes discussed during the infamous Hawai'i Vacation episode is that all of the shows discussed were those that were shown in the movies. Which means even Beyonce could have been an expert.

I mean shit, how can you mention Brady Bunch without mentioning the infamous episode with... LISA EILBACHER!!!

lisa eilbacker. 'splain. i haven't seen too many brady bunch episodes.

the most prominent one that sticks out is when they're at some amusement park and mike has a big meeting that day. his blueprints (which he took to the park for some reason) get mixed up with some poster one of the kids won. chaos ensues.

on vh1 the brady bunch has been represented in two seperate years, so who knows, maybe the one you speak of might get a nod.

>lisa eilbacker. 'splain. i haven't seen too many brady
>bunch episodes.

Lisa Eilbacher was a popular star in the late 70's/early 80's, always playing a side character but she was sexy as hell. She was in "An Officer And Gentleman", and there was a movie with Gary Coleman where he wanted to live in the subway.

Anyway, when she was at the top, it was discovered that Lisa Eilbacher appeared in an episode as a student, I believe one of Marcia's friends. So anyone who thought she was hot got a chance to see how good looking she was back in the early 1970's.

She's only done a few roles, but in her day she was easily one of the first stars I had a crush on.

-once again, vh1 chooses to start of with nostalgia from the african-american community. 1970 had the jackson five. one year later, shaft. for the rest of the show, white people dominate.

-electric company "or what i didn't know about from 1971." hey, i learned something. "stop the cop, pop"

-bo derek looks now like penny marhsall's slightly less ugly sister.

-shame on the "white man's liter!"

-hogan's heroes: gilligan's island meets the holocaust

-no donny hathaway, but curtis mayfield shows up.

-scariest moment of the year: big black girl talking about wearing hot pants

-yes, you are right, doug e. fresh, willy wonka IS fly!

78. "According to the starbucks website"
In response to Reply # 77


  

          

the first starbucks opened in 1971 in Seattle.

The first one outside of Seattle opened in 1987.

1996 was the year that the number of starbucks locations exceeded 1000.

There are now over 6000 locations.

I'm old enough to remember life before Starbucks, life before Viagra, life before VCRs, life before CDs, etcetera. So I like to make sure that my memories are arranged in chrnological order. And it's about as easy as can be to find out this information.

Or as I said in my Beyonce reply above, there was a time when all we had was three networks. Four actually, but no one considered PBS a "true" network. Then cable came, and yet cable was meant for the "adults", unless HBO had a good movie.

there were no commercials on cable? A woman I work with was complaining about the way a movie was broken up by commercials the other day, and I said, "You need cable." She said, "This WAS cable." Wow. How times have changed.

In response to Reply # 91


  

          

Or with movie channels, you saw the film uninterrupted. No goofy graphic that moves the credits to a small part of the screen, no "behind the scenes" segment on the bottom. The reason people liked cable back then was because that movies weren't cut up and edited. Now... there's DVD.

Why don't they just have this dude do the whole thing? He seems to remember damn near everything, and can usually some up whatever the topic is in one line, and I usually laugh. I didn't even know who he was until the 80's show. There is one other guy who they seem to show all the time who is the same way.

they are interviewing kermit. just like they're interviewing quest and michael ian black. he is a panel guest or whatever in the discussion. and some topic was brought up to kermit and he responded by making a viagra joke. i don't remember what, but it must have been something about impotency.

so he made a joke NOW about something THEN and the punchline was "viagra."

Kermit is a renaissance man, and I believe he was comparing Viagra to the power of whatever he was talking about back then. In other words, "we didn't have Viagra back then, but we had Burt Reynolds' chest" or something.

I loved "Sesame Street", "The Electric Company", "New Zoo Revue", and "Rebop", but my show was "Zoom". I had the album on A&M as a kid, and then I found it while thrifting a few years ago. I about freaked. I took that shit home and played it to death. So everyone say it with me:

Write ZOOM

Box 3-5-0

I have the soundtrack album in storage, I had used "Ubbi Dubbi" as an MP3 of the Week. The guy who did the movie for the show was a jazz musician in the Boston area, and he and his group combined classical music with jazz, which is why the early ZOOM stuff had a nice jazz influence.

of course, it can't touch the original. they try to be too cool. they lost the musical numbers and (gasp) the striped jerseys. now they all just wear "urban gear"

98. "thumbs down on the new Zoom"
In response to Reply # 95


  

          

I was happy when I heard about it, but when I watched it and heard the theme, I was let down. I know I'll always have respect for the original series, but... the new logo was crooked, and the kids to me didn't have the same spirit. Then again, I'm not a kid anymore. Yet when they showed the old clips on "I Love The 70's" I got all the memories back.

My lifelong dream is to walk into a TV studio, see the old ZOOM logo, and slide down the slope of the 'M'. No joke.

To many of us who grew up in the 70's, the freakishly jaunty theme from "Zoom" is more than just a television jingle — it's a musical time machine. "So won't you zoom zoom zoom-a zoom! Come on and zoom-a zoom-a zoom-a zoom! Come on, give it a try! We're gonna show you just why! We're gonna teach you to fly — high!"

Doesn't it just make you want to do that joyous wiggly arm thing, the one made famous by Bernadette ("I'm Bernadette!") Yao?

O.K., maybe you had to be there. But if you were there, back in the "Free to Be You and Me" 1970's, "Zoom" was not so much mere entertainment as a tiny, bouncy cult, a latter day Mickey Mouse Club but mellower, groovier. (You can still see it on videotape, in collections available from WGBH Video.) The show featured an ever-changing ensemble of Everykids, including the infamous Bernadette, Tracy, Leon and Edith, each with his or her trademark move. Peppy in their striped shirts, they performed goofy skits and games, from "Zoom" raps to "Zoom" goodies. They told riddles. They did projects involving boiled eggs and stickpins. And most alarmingly, they spoke Ubby Dubby, a private language that sounded like someone gargling with mashed potatoes.

The 70's were undeniably a brilliant time for children's television, but "Zoom" stood out from everything that surrounded it. "Sesame Street," "The Electric Company," "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids" — even at 10, you could taste the vegetables disguised as french fries. In contrast, "Zoom" was zany, and only the tiniest bit educational. It was also very, very kidlike, in the best possible way: stupid-smart like Mad magazine, lighthearted like "Laugh-In," with a musical theater streak straight out of "Godspell." For any kid longing to belong, it was impossible to watch "Zoom" without imagining joining the cast, a fantasy the program encouraged by peppering the skits with suggestions and recipes from viewers. ("Zoom" even managed to transform a Zip code into a musical earworm: "OH, two, ONE, three, FOUR! Send it to `Zoom'!")

Thirty years later, the cast members seem almost shocking in their little-kid vibe: they're spazzy instead of poised, radically unlike the current crop of sexy tween divas and boy-band refugees. There's a mellow 70's flavor to their Army jackets and Mary Hartman braids. And among the skits, the decade's politics peek in here and there. In one "Zoom News" segment, the newscaster announces: "In Libertyville, Ill., Peter Phillips reports: `I wrote to the president of the U.S. All he wrote back was `Dear Peter, the president enjoys hearing from you.' He didn't answer any of my questions! None! I don't think it's fair. Just because I'm a kid doesn't mean I don't know anything."

There's a new "Zoom" on PBS now, complete with e-mail instead of snail mail, as well as a dandy Web site. (The show is on Channel 13 in New York at 3:30 p.m. weekdays; check local PBS listings.) The new "Zoom" has plenty of the charm of the earlier version: same corny jokes ("What's worse than raining cats and dogs? Hailing taxicabs!"), same viewer-suggested crafts and recipes (cinnamon toast!). Most of the difference is stylistic: there's an emphasis on gelled bangs instead of silky bowl cuts, and more high-fiving. The stripes have been replaced by bright purple and orange triangles. There's a sad lack of Ubby Dubby. And let's be honest: "PBS kids dot ORG!" just doesn't roll off the tongue like the old Zip code.

But the kids are just as endearing and dorky-charismatic, with chubby Buzz the new Bernadette. And the show is still wonderfully noneducational. (Unless you count introducing vulnerable children to mime: "The practice is really worth it, and it's an easy way to entertain your friends!") For all I know, it's possibly too innocent for your average 10-year-old, that jaded creature raised on "Gossip Girls" and "Grand Theft Auto." But if it's not "Zoom" classic, that's O.K.: ubits stubill gubood fubun.

When I was a kid, I always wanted the striped shirts. If I can find the album in storage, I'll make one of the songs an MP3 Of The Week again.

I was addicted to Connect Four! Remember how Das EFX used that "pretty sneaky sis" line in, "They Want EFX"?

Oh, and Elton John, "Benny and the Jets": My all-time favorite song of his!

87. "Jaws"
In response to Reply # 13


  

          

This was the movie that put Steven Spielberg on the map. With "Jaws" came "Orca" and "Piranha". As a kid living in Hawai'i, all of these movies freaked us out. What would happen if a piranha did come from Brazil to eat us?

For a small group of people, everytime we watch the beginning of the film, we say EGGMAN!

I turned five in 1975, my sister was born, and I honestly don't remember this EST shit. Holding it in for 4 1/2 hours? There would be lawsuits if people did that today.

It seemed there was a whole movement of brainwashing as enlightenment. I know the Amway meetings my mom and dad used to take me to definitely felt like that.

In response to Reply # 96


  

          

You know how that woman on the show had the hots for every other male star? I had a thing for Marie Osmond. GOD DAMN! Woooo. Even now she looks good.

As dorky as Donny & Marie were, the show was alright, everybody had a "variety show". You can't front on The Osmonds doing "Crazy Horses".

If anyone ever releases the Donny & Marie movie, "Goin' Coconuts", on DVD, I'm there.

100. "Jacklyn Smith paved the way for Martha Stewart"
In response to Reply # 96


  

          

in a K-Mart sense anyway. Think back to the old K-Mart commercials where Jacklyn Smith talked about her fabrics and linen. Then think of how Martha talks about her shit. It's NOT a good thing.

I thought Jacklyn Smith was hot too. Watching this, I realized how much The Powerpuff Girls are modeled after Charlie's Angels. Buttercup is definitely Kate Jackson.

Demi Moore in a bathing suit. without her there is no full throttle. and part of life is empty then. sorry, it's a personal thing. thank you vh1 for this show and for constant "striptease" reruns.

>I thought Jacklyn Smith was hot too.

about seven or eight years ago i caught a gang of charlie's angels cartoon on tbs during one summer. i never understood the farrah hype. not much on blondes though anyway. jacklyn smith was always my "favorite angel."

In response to Reply # 105


  

          

I think if you look at most of the "babes" around this time, most of them were "blonde" (with a few exceptions). Back then you had Cheryl Ladd and Cheryl Tiegs, then it became Heather Thomas and Heather Locklear.

I never got into Farrah either, or Suzanne Sommers. Joyce DeWitt, now that's another story.

I don't think you can make a movie like this anymore without some Committee For Children In Cinema getting pissed. I liked what was said, that at the end of the movie the Bears didn't win. But at least with later movies, they did.

The TV series sucked. Corey Feldman? C'mon.

stay away from corey. corey feldman pre-89 (including the 'burbs of course) is untouchable in my book. after that, you might as well change his last name to "haim."

In response to Reply # 96


  

          

Talk about merchandising and hype at the highest level. Remember when everyone was talking about millenium hype? It was the same ordeal in terms of how much product came out, but in a nationalistic sense. I don't remember the celebration of ethnic diversity in 1976, but then again it was election year and I'm sure the grown ups just wanted a major change in the White House.

This part was fucked up. How can you talk about Rog, Dee, Mama, Rerun, and Shirley, and not talk about Dwayne? Dwayne was a very important part of the show, and was definitely the cooler of the three.

At least they showed footage from the infamous Doobie Brothers bootleg episode.

112. "Stuck like Gilligan"
In response to Reply # 110


  

          

Unlike the stars of the past, I think a lot of actors know that perhaps they'll always be remembered for one role and one role only. I don't think people are going to see Fred Berry on the street and go "you were in Scarface, right?"

But then again, he never allowed himself to step out of that role. Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs hasn't stayed like Freddie "Boom Boom" Washington all his life, and John Travolta definitely had potential to remain as Vinnie Barbarino.

In response to Reply # 97


  

          

GOD DAMN! How long was this song #1 for, nine weeks or some shit? My sister loved the song. Wasn't the B-side "Hasta Manana" or something?

I find it funny that the song was about the love of God, it's like add another to the list of religious manipulation. If it's not breaking bricks with your head or bending pipes, it's saying "hey, I love you".

Then there was the movie for "You Light Up My Life", starring Didi Conn. I had a thing for her too.

113. "Queen"
In response to Reply # 97


  

          

I knew what Marilyn Manson was talking about when he said when you're kid, you're not aware that Queen was a reference to someone that was gay. All I knew back then was that they rocked. "Bohemian Rhapsody" was awesome, "We Will Rock You" was great, "Fat Bottomed Girls", "Another One Bites The Dust", they had loads of good songs.

It wasn't until the early 80's, when Freddie Mercury started cutting his hair short, that it was revealed that it was gay. So of course we can listen to the songs, look at the covers, watch the videos and go "aah, I see". But they rocked, and in terms of musicianship and production, Brian May was someone who managed to make his guitar sound like much more than a guitar, it became full orchestras, all before samplers were the norm.

I didn't write down any of the memorable quotes, so instead of doing that I'll just mention the things that were discussed in the show, and if any of you have any memories or thoughts, post away.

121. ""Superman" movie"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

I was always a Marvel kid, so Superman was no big deal to me. However, it was a comic book brought to the big screen, so it was cool. I didn't see this until it was on HBO, but out of the Superman movies that were made, this was the best. I thought Margot Kidder was ugly.

122. "The Incredible Hulk (TV show)"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

The Hulk was a Marvel character, so he was cool. My family watched this because my dad was into bodybuilding, so he had to see how Lou Ferrigno did. To me, Bill Bixby will always be the guy in "The Courtship Of Eddie's Father". The only good part of the show was seeing Bruce Banner rip.

In response to Reply # 120


  

          

Remember when there were cartoons only on Saturday? Seems so long ago. They might have been DC characters, but this was cool. My sister and I always did the Wonder Twins routine, where she was always an animal and I had to be "form of a bucket of ice".

In response to Reply # 120


  

          

This was definitely scary for its time, and in many ways still is. In the early 70's you had shit like "The Exorcist" and "The Omen", and then it came to films that were even more violent. PLUS... you got to see it. Jamie Lee Curtis was cute.

it's considered (the first one at least) an independent film and for a while was the highest-grossing of that type.

125. "Chic - Le Freak (roller skating jam)"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

In Hawai'i we had already known Chic from "Dance, Dance, Dance", and I remember going to the rollerskating rink outside of downtown Honolulu and skating to that. "Le Freak" was huge, but I preferred "I Want Your Love" myself. On public access, you could see the promotional films that Atlantic did for "Le Freak" and "I Want Your Love", and sadly they didn't show them on "I Love The 70's".

In response to Reply # 120


  

          

This was a CBS show, and in Hawai'i any program on CBS was a religious event. I still watch the show today, and the prizes are still cheap and old as hell. But the women are better looking today.

In response to Reply # 168


  

          

I still remember the first show where he came out in the white hair. It was a huge shock, because he was always slick. But the crowd stood up, saluted him, and he's been that way ever since. I don't remember why he went to not dying it, not sure if it was because the hair products were known to have been tested on animals, or he just decided that he had enough.

I watched The Price Is Right religiously as a kid (when Bob colored his hair, obviously). It was one of the best things about summer vacation, as far as I was concerned, lol!

Now that I'm grown, I only watch it when I'm laid up on the couch with a cold, so I always do a double take when I see Bob's white hair. ks

127. "Commodores - "Brick House""
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

As a kid, I didn't know what a "Brick House" was. Or I should say, what would a house made out of brick have to do with a woman who was "mighty mighty"? Hawaiian kids were still talking pidgin, words like "booty" and "thick" weren't a part of our vocabulary. But yeah, this song got much airplay. A lot of people still believe Lionel Richie sang the song.

128. "Underalls"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

I have enough nightmares when I was a kid, shopping with mom. Because while I did have a chance to look in the record section and toys, she would always drag me with her when she would buy "women's stuff". I was like no, I don't want to be here in the middle of the panties. You know how women are, they look in the panties and they have to look at every fricken one. We see some boxers or briefs and we're like "$10.99? Cool, let's go". I see Underalls, I think of spending time in stores I didn't want to be in. Records, yes. Pantyhose, no. I do enjoy ladies with garter belts, nylons,and/or fishnet stockings, so I'm sure these visits has had a damaging effect to my soul.

129. "Debbie Does Dallas"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

Wow, Debbie wants to fuck the whole team. Sure, open up the lava lamp and let the love slide in.

I was 8, and I was aware of dirty movies when I would look in the newspaper and see ads for films playing downtown. I always wanted to see "Deep Throat" and "Behind The Green Door". "Debbie Does Dallas" wasn't something I knew of until later.

70's porn had a mystique to them that was cool too. They did all of them on real film, and the people actually acted and had a sense of humor. My first experience with 70's porn was in the video age, so I did not have the (dis)pleasure of going to a theater and smelling the funk and watching whomever was stroking whomever.

131. "The Bee Gees"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

Ask someone in their 50's who the Bee Gees are and they may tell you about songs they came out with in the 70's. As someone around my age and it will be all the songs from "Jive Talkin'" onwards. How many of you know that the drum beat from "Night Fever" was used in "Stayin' Alive"? I'm a sucker for "How Deep Is Your Love" too.

173. "a few guesses"
In response to Reply # 169


  

          

The movie was always bigger than the elements that made the music. It was a phenomenon, and basically sparked all dance studios to have a disco night.

The success of the soundtrack album showed that the Bee Gees were not going away anytime soon.

Now that you mention it, I don't know. 1978 I think was more Andy Gibb's year, with "Shadow Dancing" and whatnot.

132. "Grease"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

As much as this is my sister's favorite movie of all time, it has become a guilty pleasure for me too. It might have been the first time I ever heard a reference to "chicks" that would "cream", and the first time I heard "pussy" in a movie. The movie was based on the play, and it came out around the time when there was nostalgia for the 50's. Sha-Na-Na cracked the mainstream and had their own show, thus the reason why they're in the movie. On TV you had "Happy Days" and "Laverne & Shirley". A few years previous we had "American Graffiti", and now we had "Grease". Looking back, I think people felt the 70's was a time to be loose and free, and maybe they seeked the purity of the 50's. Yet as you can see in the film, the youth were far from being pure. C'mon, listening to rock & roll made you impure by default. Even the teachers were nasty.

133. "WKRP In Cincinatti"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

Another CBS show, so for Hawaiians this was mandatory watching.

For me, this was one of my favorite shows because it dealt with three things I loved: music, playing records, and being a radio DJ. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a radio DJ when I grew up, so watching this was maybe my way to prepare for what could come.

I can watch the show now and see so much more. I worked for a TV station for eight years, so now I can understand the things that went on behind the scenes. Sexual tension? True. Dorky boss? True. Sexy receptionist? True. Sexual tension? True.

Plus in the show, you could actually hear the DJ's playing the records. I was fascinated by that, and my dream would come true when I became a high school DJ. Down the line, my love of radio would turn into me becoming a DJ for a pirate station. I still think radio can save the world, and this show provided the fire.

This moved Rod Stewart into the disco world, even though he was still doing rockers. People had a Rod Stewart song to dance and rollerskate to.

He made a video for this, and back in 1978 watching this on TV was the closest thing we had to porn. The video still has that sleazy/cheesy look.

136. "C.B. Radio"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

Back in 1978, the only way people could communicate was phone and the mail. The C.B. Radio was created for the truckers, but it would become a phenomenon when they were put on the market for consumer use.

In Hawai'i, a C.B. Radio was a "mainland" item since there was no trucker culture in Hawai'i. We had trucks that moved things from the docks to the various warehouse centers, but it wasn't (and still isn't) as big as it is elsewhere.

However, you could have a C.B. Radio and be able to talk to people, maybe even truckers. In "I Love The 70's" they joked on how America wanted to speak to America, and that it was pathetic for anyone to want to talk to random strangers for the sake of hearing a voice, wanting to have a conversation with someone unknown. Today we have the internet, and it's no different. C.B. radio as far as a communications medium is limited to the nerds whose short wave systems are down.

So pick up good buddie, look behind you 'cuz there's a Pregnant Rollerskate about to approach.

137. "Cheech & Chong's "Up In Smoke" (movie)"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

My dad introduced me to the albums at a very early age, so I already knew that pakalolo was bad. This movie brought the humor of their records onto the big screen, and it was great. All you needed was a good friend, enough cash for gas and munchies, and a big doobie to get you through the day. Far fucking out.

My favorite Cheech y Chong movie will always be "Nice Dreams", but "Up In Smoke" is right up there too. I'm sure there were millions of people who went out of their way to buy tortillas to cook them on the stove when they saw this. There were quite a few Mexican and Chinese stereotypes throughout, and that's what made it funny, because a lot of them were true.

138. "Fantasy Island (ABC Television show)"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

To this day I will see a plane in the sky and go "da plane, boss! Da plane, da plane". I wish the more recent version of the show was more of a success, because it was much more sinister, and filmed in Hawai'i.

139. "The Who vs. Led Zeppelin"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

I like both bands too, but if I had to pick one, it would be Led Zeppelin. The comment that Joe Perry of Aerosmith made about Pete Townshend not being able to play good solos is true, Townshend is a rhythm man. Jimmy Page could do it all. The Who might have had a thousand ways to release the same greatest hits album, but Led Zeppelin were definitely the hammer of the gods.

175. "everybody did that to a degree though"
In response to Reply # 171


  

          

Riffs and solos are different than actual theft of melody and lyrics, as Led Zeppelin were known to do. I mean with a solo, especially live, Jimmy Page went everywhere. But when you're in the studio, you know damn well that you're going to be singing a Muddy Waters lyric.

140. "Simon (electronic game)"
In response to Reply # 120


  

          

Why did this game, a mere big circle of four plastic pieces that were lit from underneath, work? It was strategy, it used your brain, and it made a sound. Plus, it too had a memory. Most toys didn't have a memory, most toys that used batteries were called trains or crappy cars. This was a "smart" toy, that our parents always wanted to play in front of us and their friends to prove that they were intelligent. No.

In response to Reply # 120


  

          

I think for many of us kids, this was the first time we got to know John Belushi. We never stayed up on Saturday night, so through this movie he became our hero. Those of us who hated school had someone to look up to, the future janitors of America.

This is definitely one of my favorite all-time films.

I watched a lot of this, and I wasn't aware that Erik Estrada was supposed to be Italian. I guess with the success of The Fonz, California had to have a hot guy too.

143. "The Warriors"
In response to Reply # 17


  

          

Good news boppers!

When the ads for this movie came out, it scared me. Can a group of gang members come out and kill us all? What happens if I ride my bike to the store, will I be attacked?

This was and still is a great movie, and it influenced Ol' Dirty Bastard ("crews be actin' like the gangs anyway/be like 'Warriors come out and play-ee-ay") and Puff Daddy (intro to Craig Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)").

I had my share of Pop Rocks, and the urban legend of the Coke and Pop Rocks reached Hawai'i too. But all of my friends were too scared to do it, and I wouldn't want to do it "because we might get busted". But it was always in our thoughts.

Her reign actually begin in 1974 with the release of "Love To Love You Baby" but she was at her peak in 1978-1979. Never had the albums, just the 45's. My favorite song may be the mammoth "MacArthur Park" medley, the horns in that song just brings back a lot of memories.

157. "Three's Company"
In response to Reply # 17


  

          

I did not think Suzanne Somers was cute. Joyce DeWitt, on the other hand, was hot, especially when she had the short haircut. She always used to wear those Dove shorts, so you could always see her legs. I know she starred in a few "Love Boat"'s, but she really didn't have a career afterwards.

I watched almost the entire series, and it was kind of sad in the last episode when Joyce DeWitt had to say goodbye to John Ritter. In the show there was always the obvious sexual tension, and even with two women, Jack Tripper never got with any of them. Just innocent flirting and the occasional kiss. Yet when the last episode was shown, you just wished they could've went into the room and had one last shag for the road.

I am sure the looks on their faces were really saying "this is the last show, not sure where my career is headed next" but at times there was a lot more chemistry between the two characters than most people realized. Janet wanted to get with Jack, and Jack always wanted to get with Janet. But for whatever reason, they both had their own lives and never managed to merge as one. Too bad, because that would have been the perfect way to end the show.

The Knack were able to bring back the old Capitol yellow/orange swirl and the black/rainbow label with their records. Disco was dead, and something new was on the way. We didn't know what the new would be, but this song rocked. The B-side, "Frustrated", was good too.

160. "Captain Caveman"
In response to Reply # 17


  

          

It may seem stupid now, but as a kid we didn't care about Captain Caveman and his lack of morals or speaking skills. He was a big hairy man. Just like dad.

161. "Village People"
In response to Reply # 17


  

          

I had their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th albums, or more specifically the albums with "Macho Man", "YMCA", and "In The Navy".

As a kid, we didn't know what gay was. They were six men who dressed up like they were at work, and we were happy with that. Well, what about Felipe Rose, what job was he doing? By being the master of the foot bell, he was the only Village person that played an instrument.

Through the Village People, I also was able to learn a new word: gigolo.

What was the Jumping The Shark moment for the Village People? Steve Guttenberg rollerskating on the streets of New York City during the intro of "Can't Stop The Music", a movie which pretty much killed their careers at the beginning of the 80's.

162. "The Muppet Movie"
In response to Reply # 17


  

          

People today might not understand the impact of this movie, as it was much more than just a children's movie.

As kids, we saw muppets in "Sesame Street". As we got older, we saw them in "The Muppet Show". But this was the first time we got to see the muppets on a big screen. The humor of the TV show was still there, and they would throw in references that only the adults would understand. A pig and a frog falling in love? Awwww. "Rainbow Connection" was along the lines of "Green" in terms of what this life had to offer. "Green" was about being different, and that being different was okay. "Rainbow Connection" was innocent and simple. Just like "The Wizard Of Oz", it was always dreaming about seeing a rainbow and wondering what was on the other side. Maybe there's some good at the end of the rainbow, and maybe it's a place where no one complains or dies. In a children's film, Kermit The Frog says that in life we have to keep on hoping and dreaming, even when those dreams fade away:

Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What so we think we might see

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me

181. "best muppets moment... EVER"
In response to Reply # 176


  

          

For me, it was the John Denver Christmas Special, and it was produced by Jim Henson. It was a big deal, but it was the first place that anyone ever saw the cast of Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, AND Fraggle Rock all together in one place. I actually cried when that happened, and I'm thinking "why am I crying, it's hand puppets and Muppets". In an odd way, it felt like the broke out of the barriers for their respective shows, and united for the love of John Denver.

69. "Probably"
In response to Reply # 53


  

          

There's a movie that's out now, about 70's movies, and how most of the decision making was with executives in tie-dye and marijuana in the conference rooms. For someone like me who grew up on that, that's what we saw, but looking back as an adult we can say "oh shit, who WASN'T high?"

I think it was trying to hold on to the qualities of the late 60's as long as possible, and really the 60's didn't end until 1976.

83. "the reason for the anchor"
In response to Reply # 72


  

          

Well a few reasons:

1) This is a series that will be the topic of discussion for the rest of the week.
2) Since the show does have Black Thought and ?uest, I can at least get away with having it anchored, as it is OKP-related.
3) It's a good way to bring attention to the show.

Maybe next week around this time I'll drop the anchor.

I used the anchor on the book post, as I had wanted to try to see what kind of books everybody was reading, and it went past 100 posts so I think it was worthy.

he said that willy wonka is "fly."

he still gets the pass in my book for his commentary on "i love the 80's" and specifically "goonies." if it wasn't for him, we would have just had raven simone laughing like a pig taking testosterone shots.

163. "They better do a part 2...."
In response to Reply # 0


          

I was born in the 60's so I was old enough to remember all of this stuff pretty well...

I've been taping each episode and i haven't watched them ALL yet, but at first glance it seems they left a bunch of stuff out...some examples of big things (and not so big things) that they didn't touch on enough or at all...

Most of the GREAT soul music of the 70's*...
Evil Knevil phonomena...
Lancelot Link...
Zotz candy...
Micronauts...
Funny Face drink mix...(poor mans Kool Aid)
The Breakfast Cereal boom...
Bruce Lee...
Billy Jack...
Powderd Soda mix...(didn't last long...it was some nasty shit)

As a whole, I'm enjoying the 70's series though. Longe overdue...this was my personal 'golden era' of youth so it makes me all fuzzy inside re-living some of the old dusty memories...Some highlights of the series for me are...

•ZOOM! original tv show:
The Original ZOOM crew then & now. Someone commented on the show about and i had the same feelings...i too had a crush on the asian girl! (she still looks kinda hot) There was also a tall black girl I had a crush on too but i didn't see her in the old clips...i think she may have been a member later on in the series.

•LAND OF THE LOST original tv show: Sid & Marty in general...
Sid & Marty Croft RULED saturday morning in my house in the 70's. They they seemed to have their finger on the pulse of every kids dreams (or nightmares). I allmost crapped my pants when i first saw the trailer for Land Of The Lost on the Saturday morning linup back in the 70's. Sid & Marty had the whole "Sid & Marty Crofts Superstar Hour" or something where they would just hit you with a variety of episodes of different shows...DR Shrinker, Electro Woman & Dyna Girl, WonderBug, The Lost Saucer, Pryors Place, Sigmund the Sea Monster. Plus they had HR Puff NStuff and Lidsville...both freaky ass tv shows that had me GLUED to the TV.

•The Soul Train Flashbacks:
I want more of this. There should be a whole special devoted to Soul Train...maybe do a then & now on some of the more memorable dancers. Maybe have my girl Rosie Perez host a retrospective (for those that may be too young to remember, Rosie was a regular dancer on Soul Train back in the day...lawd... love me some Rosie.

•Sesame Street & anything Muppets:
Goes directly to my heart. I love me some Muppets. Comments about Snuf as a crackhead & Bert and Ernie as the first alternative lifestyle duo were pretty funny. But there was not enough of my boy Grover...Grover was THE monster!

•The Modern Mystery phenomena:
Bigfoot, Lochness Monster, Bermuda Triangle, UFOs...
I used to check out the same UFO books from the library over & over & over again back then. I just KNEW I was gonna be able to figure out what they were all about and why they were here. I was gonna grow up and become an 'Unexplained Phenomena Investegator'...hehe i guess i was the 'Mulder' of my era in my neigborhood.

•Burning Pintos:
one commentor said somthing about the Pinto's back bumper being made of flint.

•The Commercial flashbacks are always great:
It doesn't matter that many grainy and faded...they're still classic. Stretch Armstrong. Connect Four. "Pretty Sneaky Sis"

•Linda Carter:
Hot then. Hot now. nuff said.



So those are a few of the GOOD things...here are some of the not so good things about this 70's series...

PET PEEVES i have with the 70 series so far...
•The MUSIC thing part 1...with all of the wealth of 70s music available to use, WHY do they regularly use music form the 80's or 90's as backdrop soundtrack music for certain parts. Drives me crazy! Use the music from the 70's for crying out loud.

•The MUSIC thing part 2...Definitely NOT enough done regarding the great SOUL music of the 70's. Sure they touched on Disco, and the cheesy (but good in it's own right) easy listening pop hits of the times. They mentioned some good rock stuff too...but DAMN...the SOUL music of the 70's was just CLASSIC. It was THE golden age of soul for me at least. Where is that represented here? Not much at all.

•The youngsters commenting:
Not that some of these cats aren't funny, they ARE funny. They are craking me up. But as has been mentioned, some were likely not even born in the years they are commenting on. I guess it's ok as long as there comments are on target, but i would also like to have more comments from those who actually lived through that shit.

like I said though, as a whole I'm enjoying it. But seeing as i think they are doing an 80's part 2 (80s Strike back)...i definitely think that there is plenty of old gems on the 70's cutting room floor to warrant a 'Return of the 70's' series as well.

182. "My verdict"
In response to Reply # 163


  

          

For the most part, the series was good. I got to reminisce about my youth and once again realize how old I am.

I agree, some of the younger guys don't even seem like they were there, but rather experienced it via reruns. My first memories began around 1973-1974, so the shows for those years brought me back to that time.

But there wasn't enough. I know VH-1 is more of a variety/documentary network than a channel that plays "Video Hits", but they began as a music network, there should be an emphasis on the music, especially soul.

There were loads of albums and songs they didn't touch on either. With the early 70's, you can't escape the impact of "filk", which was stuff like Les Crane's "Desiderata" and that one "America" song on Westbound. It was an odd movement, where you heard the music and someone spoke over it (the highest moment for the filk movement was probably "Convoy").

While they rightfully mentioned THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, they did not mention THE WALL. It may have been released in November 1979, but it wrapped up the 70's very well. They did hint to it when they played "Run Like Hell" during a segment, but that was it.

I do hope they do a new version, and give it a title that the Rolling Stones used for one of their compilations album: SUCKING IN THE 70's. There was a whole lotta sucking going on, complete with hair.
