When I watch older TV shows I am always on the lookout for tech treats. Last night I was watching Three’s Company episode “Furley vs. Furley” (original air date 2/17/82) and right at the start of the show we get a healthy dose of 80s gaming culture as Jack and Janet play some mysterious football game (even though their is no cart is the unit) while Mr. Furley attempts to fix a door in the background. It is perfect fake gaming moment complete with fake sound FX and poor joystick holding. It was a real treat so I thought I would share some shots of the episode.
This 1984 PSA educated children on how to avoid being molested and or kidnapped. It is of note because it has the Fonz, John Ritter, Fred Flintstone and creepiest song about private parts that I have ever heard. Ick.
