Retroist Square Pegs Podcast
Welcome, fellow retro enthusiasts, to the all-new Retroist Podcast. Today's episode is dedicated to shining a nostalgic spotlight on the delightfully quirky and short-lived 1980s sitcom, Square Pegs. As we delve into the world of this unique show, you'll discover just why it holds a special place in my heart.
To set the stage, I reminisce about how my sister played an integral role in introducing me to numerous television gems. With Square Pegs, however, I required no extra encouragement. The mere fact that this show featured the iconic band DEVO was enough to capture my attention and ignite my interest. After all, who wouldn't be intrigued by the blending of new wave music and teenage misadventures?
Moving forward, I delve into the talented individuals in front of and behind the camera who brought the world of Square Pegs to life. From the gifted cast, including Sarah Jessica Parker and Amy Linker, to the creative minds of the show's creator, Anne Beatts, everyone involved contributed to the show's unique charm and comedic brilliance.
Of course, no discussion of Square Pegs would be complete without acknowledging its infectious music. The show's theme song, performed by The Waitresses, became an instant anthem for teenage misfits everywhere. It perfectly captured the spirit of the series and left an indelible mark on the memories of its viewers.
As we delve deeper into the episode, I can't help but highlight the memorable guest appearance by the legendary Bill Murray. His comedic genius added an extra layer of hilarity to an already brilliant show, making the episode a standout among fans.
While Square Pegs may have had a short-lived run, it has managed to gather a dedicated fan base over the years. Thankfully, the show received a DVD release, allowing fans old and new to relive the laughs and teenage trials and tribulations captured within each episode.
So, my fellow cool clique members, I invite you to join me in immersing ourselves in the world of Square Pegs. This podcast episode serves as a gateway to the past, reigniting our love for this unique sitcom and reminding us of the wonderful and wacky moments it delivered. Tune in, reminisce, and let the nostalgia wash over you as we celebrate the unforgettable charm of Square Pegs.
