Comments for I'm Sick of the 1970s

I'm sick of the 1970s:


Strike 1:

I read today that Billy Bob Thorton will be staring in a remake of The Bad News Bears. My first thought was: It's kind of cool that the Bad News Bears are coming back. My second thought was: Yuck! Billy Bob? Eeew. My third thought was: How much schlock of the 1970s has to be remade into new schlock?

Strike 2:

I guess the 2000s will be remembered as the 1970s revival. It started early with the Charlie's Angels remake which was enjoyable and unique. Since then we've had the sequel: Full Throttle, Starsky and Hutch, and the recent Battlestar Galactica miniseries.

Strike 3:

We're not quite a third into this decade but with the TV shows becoming films, music trying to capture that oh so melodious lame sound of the 70s ballads, and the hip-hugging bell bottoms making a comeback, it's going to be a long and ugly decade.
