Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Feel free to start laughing now.

Evan and I were in Sam's Club yesterday, looking for a few more things to keep him occupied. We passed the DVD's, and there it was, shining out at me from the stacks of other (likely more worthy) shows. I immediately went into a dream state reliving my massive crush on Buck (I was 7, gimme a break!) and for $17, I picked up a little slice of nostalgia.

The kids are currently watching the episodes and having complete heart attacks over the set, costumes, horrible acting and hysterical technology. I am still fondly reminiscing my blissful and idyllic childhood, complete with popcorn. At one point, Buck busts into disco, and I laughed so hard, I wept.

Excuse me while I go listen to some Cindy Lauper and feel really really old!

Leo asked us what a record was. How can kids today possible appreciate the glory that was the 70's?

I could use some Buck Rogers nostalgia.

Have they asked you yet why we say "dial" a phone number when clearly we "push" a phone number?

Mine were blown away by descriptions of rotary phones.
