    After the enormous success of I LOVE THE 80s, VH1 is going back to the 70s. From the previews it looks like Hal Sparks and Mo Rocca are back to comment on things. Hopefully there will be others returning as well.

    I'm really looking forward to this as I enjoyed the 80s shows a great deal. Although I was born in 1976, many of the things that were popular in the early to mid 80s were introduced in the 70s.

    It starts on Monday, August 18 with two shows per night starting at 9:00pm EST.

    VH1 has lots of cool info on their website.

    While I think that Rocca, Sparks and Micheal Ian Black are hilarious, they're too young to have really lived through the 70s. The heart of 70s culture was in re-runs when they saw it. THey didn't live through the disco era; watch "Good Times" when it was in its heyday. Dyno-MITE cannot hold the resonance to an X-er or a Y-er that it does for someone born between 1955 and 1964. Mind you, I'm looking forward to it, but I hope they've got some people who will do more than smirk.

    I'm too young to really care... But I loved the 80s series. Enjoy everyone!

    I was born in 78, so watching the 80's series meant a bit more to me as I grew up in that erra. I still don't consider the 80's 'classic' or 'retro' yet, bTW [​IMG].

    Don't know if I'll watch the 70's one, but I'll probably tune in if I catch it...

    A review in the New Yorker reinforced some of my fears. For instance, they somehow managed to discuss 1973 without mentioning the Watergate hearings. As the reviewer put it, the series seems to be aimed at the same audience as "I love the 80s." [​IMG]

    Looking forward to the show.

    To help promote I LOVE THE 70s, VH1 & Borders books in downtown NYC kicked it off this past Tuesday with a free concert/signing by Peter Frampton. Peter played in the Borders bookstore for about an hour. It was great.

    It was fun to see the stuffy people's expressions on their faces as they entered the book store expecting a quiet library environment and instead getting blasted with 115 decibals of Peter jamming with his sqwalk(sp?)box.
