I want to make sure everyone is aware of the new tv show on TBS called "Glory Daze". It premieres on November 16th at 10pm EST..

The premise of show deals with four college buddies in the 80's. I have no idea if it will be any good since they didn't ask for our input, but let's all support it starting out. I'd love to see more movies and tv shows that give the 80's a proper treatment.

Anyone else interested?

Muffy.. my thoughts exactly.. the hairstyles and clothes in those photos just don't seem very 80's. I've seen the previews today and I will say that they do have a few good 80's tunes at least.

They need to watch "Hot Tub Time Machine" to get that true 80's style done in a newer movie ... or even better.. pay a visit to the Rewind. Where's the NEON??

I know! and i'm really trying not to be too negative....honest! I liked Hot Tub Time Machine but I didn't walk away loving it and feeling i'd ever need to watch it again...but your right they did a good effort at the style and poking fun at it [Big Grin]

I actually quite enjoyed Hot Tub Time Machine.. my only compliant was the gross out factor that is present in today's movies .. must appeal to today's generation .. for me it took away from what was kind of a funny story.

But like you.. I have no plans to purchase the dvd. I will watch it again on the movie channels if it is on though.

Hadn't heard of this until now...I'll certainly give it a shot...I mean...I even liked watching "That 80's Show"...it can't be worse than that! I hope they "REWIND" far enough...I'm not interested in seeing anyone re-live 1987-89'. Stick in some good 80's music, add a good helping of 80's references (careful not to overdo it though), and they might make something out of it. I agree re the above picture not being 80's enough, but hopefully it was just a bad stylist choice for this one picture. I hope they make some informed choices, and too bad they couldn't add some "gritty" to the filming to make it more nostalgic..

I hadn't heard anything about this show. That tells me that TBS is really promoting it, not. I just hope it's not over-the-top making fun of the 80's, or else the opposite where they are wearing clothing and hairstyles from 2010 yet pretending to be 80's styled. I thought one of the worst representations of the 80's was Adventureland. They all were dressed and styled for the 2000's, yet it was supposed to be set in the 80's.

Hmmmmm...not quite far enough for me Valley, but again, I'll still certainly give it a try.

I hope they didn't reference AP directly. It didn't come out until the 90's.

No, it was a reference to the movie. The part where Bateman is pointing and winking at himself in the mirror. Maybe the actor was just ad-libbing and snuck that part in? Or maybe it's just a coincidence. Don't know.

I thought is was a great first show.. the tunes were incredible! They did a decent job of giving it an 80's feel.

Ronnie.. what I enjoyed was the fact that they didn't just play basic overplayed 80's tunes. The thought process behind the tunes was well conceived.

2nd episode is tonight.. TBS 10pm EST

Ronnie.. I just thought of this, Richard Blade played the dj at the beginning of the show. Maybe he was a mjor influence on the use of wicked tunes like:

"Make A Circuit With Me"

"Save It For Later"

"Da Da Da"

"It Must Be Love"

& "Doot-Doot"

Plus a few more gems. Great launching of the show music wise.

Anyone still watching this show? I'm actually enjoying it and while it doesn't totally capture the 80's feel.. it tries very hard. Liked the match date party ..


And you had to love the title.. "Hungry Like A Teen Wolf"

I watched what I thought was the first episode on Ondemand this morning. I've been waiting for what, two weeks for them to put it up. but I don't think it was even the first episode that they put up! I don't remember any of the above stuff that you all were talking about (AP reference, Asian guy, etc.). In this episode, which they numbered as the first one, the pledges had to find a certain brand of beer for the stoner guy Stankowsky. I will say the show is alright, but I feel as though it could be set during the 2000's. The guys are dressed in 80'sstyle clothes. I noticed that they are wearing fitted polo shirts, not the huge baggy ones with the sleeve below the elbow like most fools wear today. The girls were kinda "meh" as far as 80's clothing and hairstyles. Especially the hair- not one of the younger girls even made me think "80's". The only one whose hair and clothes definitely looked 80's was Teri Polo. I loved the aerobics class scene!

Well I just checked the episode list on imdb, and that was the second episode: Fake Me Home Tonight. I hope they put the pilot up on ONdemand soon.

well i am loving the show, and it's feeling very 80s to me...well, as close as they can get on a tv show in 2010/2011. not bad, i'd say!!

the tunes are well placed, the backgrounds are great, the clothing is good... i agree the girls weren't getting the look, but they have managed to do better, especially in the last episode, which was the 3rd one.

and i the matched party was great. loved the teen wolf costume! [Smile]

I watched the second episode "Hungry Like Teen Wolf" last night. It was really good. I thought it was better than the first one I watched (they still have not put up the Pilot on Ondemand!). It brought back great memories of my college days and when my boyfriend was pledging his fraternity. I also liked the music and the party theme. We used to have a "Nuts and Bolts" party at his frat.

This week's show was awesome by bringing in Dad's from 80's past. My fav character was Curtis Armstong as Mitch was it?

Enjoyed hearing "Mad World" by Tears For Fears at the end too.
