UnderScoopFire Podcast #19 – From 80s Childhood ’til Now: Oh How Far We’ve Come

by Howie Decker @HowardTheDeck

Last week our “Roundtable Voltron” discussed what we were looking forward to in 2012. This week the guys from UnderScoopFire got on their “computer phones” again and examined how far we’ve come since the 1980s and our childhood. We broke our discussion into 5 distinct topics:

  • Video Games – from Atari 2600/7800 to XBox 360
  • Movies – from Three Amigos to Anchorman
  • Inter-personal Communication – from letter writing to texting/tweeting/Facebook
  • TV – from ALF to Alcatraz
  • Comics/Toys/Games – from 5 points of articulation to today

To claim that we “kept it classy” is like saying He-Man’s wardrobe was “conservative”.

A sample of what we covered:

Yeah, it was a great discussion – but here’s the thing: we didn’t realize how much fun we’d have with it, and we only got through 3 segments. Stay tuned for Part 2 of “Oh How Far We’ve Come” where we finish up with TV, Comics, Toys, Games, and probably some sports, cartoons, and wrestling talk.
