Episode 55: Late ’80s Boomer Nostalgia on/for TV

This week join Jonathan, Andrew, & Steve as Jonathan introduces the potential significance of nostalgia that occurred on U.S. television beginning in the late 1980s. Using the shows The Wonder Years, Quantum Leap, and Dream On as case studies the guys discuss and debate the significance of nostalgia not only for a childhood but a childhood that grew in parallel with a particular medium (TV). Also, enjoy as Jonathan and Steve argue over Mike Post’s Quantum Leap theme.
