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.

Episode 31 – Nostalgia

This week join the full trio as we discuss the seemingly new form of nostalgia on television. Are efforts like Girl Meets World, Fuller House, and even The Muppets a new form of data-driven nostalgia, or just the same old thing dressed up for a new season? What are the origins of nostalgia? What exactly are we nostalgic for anyway? Tune in this week as Steve encourages Andrew’s love of spoken word jazz, as we attempt to get at some answers.
