Has anyone seen those shows on VH1 called "I Love the 80's or I Love the 70's?  I have.  I think they're cool, but all the people interviewed all go overboard on humor.  For example, Michael Ian Black insulting Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation!  That's they're best CD ever!  I have that album!  Of course they do that to stir up controversy.  And a lot of the interviewees are overexposed.  Plus, I heard a rumor that there might be an I Love the 90's.  Not sure if it's true or not.

It's true, though I don't think all of the '90s are far enough away for us to be nostalgic about them yet (though the British version already did the '90s).

E! already did the 90s. I wasn't alive in the 70s or 80s so it doesn't bring back any memories for me, but we don't need a "remembering the 90s" thing yet.

I love those 2 programs. They are very nostalgic and the guests are hilarious throughout.

It's ironic that TV probably makes your brain forget about these decades and are now trying to fill in memories from your life...

I watched it on BBC2, my favourite was the '70s as that was the decade of my childhood.

Its gotta be the 80's for me, I grew up in that decade so all music influences tend to stem from the New Romantics and OMD who rocked!

I haven't got VH1, but I have watched the BBC2 version "I Love the 70s/80s/90s". I enjoyed the 80s one a lot, because of all the toys and cartoons in it that I grew up with  smile The 90s one was good because it was the first full decade that I can actually remember!  big grin

I enjoy watching some of these for the nostalgia, even if it is VH1 produced.  The only thing that annoys me is on the early 70's era shows a lot of the people they have doing commentary are close to my age.  That means they would have been very young (or not born at all) during that period.  It seems kind of false for them to be commenting on something they probably barely remember.

Strangely enough I've seen these before. I enjoyed them. One of my favorite moments was when they were talking about the guy who shot Reagan in an attempt to win a girl's heart and the guy goes "Oh hey I just shot Reagan will you go out with me?". Classic.

I really don't want to see an "I Love the 90's".  It will just be the same interviewees again.  Besides, do we really want to hear Donal Logue insult Nirvana?

No, I think now they're on either "The Fabulous Life of Rich Slut Paris Hilton" or "50 Songs We Now Say Are Awful, Even Though You Liked Them When They Were Singles and We Still Played Them."

Well it's finally happened VH1 will be showing "I Love the 90's" this summer.  I just hope when they get to 1999, they mention Futurama since that was the year it first aired.

Nirvana was great and all.. I loved Polly. But Smells Like Teen Spirit? The anthem of a generation? It was gibberish. Was that the nonsense generation? Maybe.. Anyway, I can see little meaning in that song. Give me the middle-of-their-career Beatles any day..
On topic: The people who wanted to make I love the nineties are the people who wanted Reagan on the ten dollar bill.

I saw the first episode of I Love the 90s.  It had some good stuff, but generally I didn't think it was as good as 70s or 80s, though the series could pick up in later episodes.

They did Twin Peaks, Pretty Woman, Edward Scissorhands (lots of masturbation jokes), and many musicians like MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, and Deee-Lite.  It's the same format as before, but I think there are too many "features" before and after commercials.  The Snapple lady is annoying.  And will every episode end with Jerry Springer?

It had basically the same people who are always on it with a few new people, including Billy West (but don't take that to mean they're going to do Futurama for 1999).

When you saw Billy West, did they show his name in subtitle?  You like "Billy West", because when they provide a subtitle for one of they people they get to host those decade shows they provide the name of the person and from what show they were from.  Did they post "Billy West from Futurama"  or Doug?

Billy West does a little Professor when he talks about Dr. Kevorkian in the 1990 episode.  Dr. Kevorkian was the doctor who let people kill themselves if they were suffering from deadly diseases.  He was given the nickname, "Dr. Death".

I really was very amused during the "Uncut and Uncensored Billy West on: 'Ren and Stimpy'". It's really just him having a conversation with himself.

Frank Zappa said once:

I've also talked about the End of the World being a question of whether it's going to be by fire, ice, paperwork, or nostalgia. And there's a good chance that it's going to be nostalgia because the distance between the event and the nostalgia for the even has gotten shorter and shorter and shorter with each nostalgia cycle. So, projecting into the future, you could get to a point where you would take a step and be so nostalgic for that point where you would take a step and be so nostalgic for that step you just took that you would literally freeze in your tracks to experience the nostalgize of the last step, or the last word, or your last whatever. The world just comes to a halt - remembering.

I watched a few minutes of "I love the '90s" yesterday, because Billy West was on it doing Ren and Stimpy voices.  It just helped me remember that the '90s really sucked, pop culture wise.  And I can't watch the show at all because they put that damn dancing baby everywhere and that annoys the hell out of me.  I think it's the creepiest thing I've ver seen, and it wasn't really that big of a popular icon. 

Hey, remember the good old days, when there was just "I Love the '80s"?  Ah, a simpler time.  Hey, we should do a show about how great that was.  "I love "I Love the '80s.""

Does anybody remember if they mentioned Terminator 2 for 1991?  That is when the movie came out and I don't remember them mentioning it.  That was that year's biggest summer movie.  Damn them if they didn't mention it, but if they did mention it, Kudos.

Needs more Michael Ian Black, Trey Parker, and Hal Sparks.

Needs less Mo Rocca (who was horrible in everything he did on the Daily Show when he was still on it) and that fucking dancing baby.

And yeah, "I Love the '80s" has been the best series so far.

I Love the 90's wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  In fact some of the interviewees are cool!  (i.e. Billy West, Trey Parker).  I'm surprised they haven't mentioned My Cousin Vinny for 1992 and Beavis and Butthead for 1993.  I'm glad they didn't talk about Sonic the Hedgehog!

   laff canned eggs has cracked me up and ended my depression at today's mundane-ness. thank you, eggs.

I wish there was less dancing baby, Mo Rocca, and music vid flashbacks, and more Billy West having a conversation with himself.

Remember when Jodie Foster had her son, and she wouldn't tell anyone who the father was?  My theory is that it was Hinckley.  I mean, he loves her six trillion times.  How could she resist that?

Yeah.. that baby[and the toasters] are somewhat annoying, but I like this show. As much of an 80s poseur as I am, the 90s were my true childhood, and I can relate to this better than any other series. I grew up down the street from the Auto Body Shop with the bullet hole on the window.. My bus passed it every day. Whenever we went by, after that.. the 9th graders would sing, "Amy's got a gun, what's she gonna do, she'll shoot Mary Jo with a .42". The wildest times in my old house were spent locking the door in my parents' room when they were busy and watching Ren and Stimpy or reading the old copy of Penthouse Forum that was under the bed. Good times.
I was in the other room when they were talking about R&S, and I heard someone doing an uncanny impersonation. "Is that Billy West?!!" And I was so happy when I saw that it was.

I still think it's too early to get nostalgic about the decade, but I'm enjoying the installment on the '90s more than I thought I would. I was in junior high and high school in those days, so I can recall this stuff as if it were yesterday (and I suppose in the grand scheme of things, it kinda was). I love Mo Rocca, Hal Sparks and Michael Ian Black. I've enjoyed other panelists such as Donal Logue, Craig Ferguson, Greg Proops, Lewis Black and Greg Fitzsimmons but as long as those aforementioned three are on board I'll watch any "I Love The" show.

I was so happy to see Billy West on the '90s series. I love that he slips into various voices now and then. That Snapple gag just cracked me up.

Incidentally, "I Love the '70s" is my favorite of the series.

Kicked your ass.

I love "I Love the [decade]". My favorite interviewees are Micheal Ian Black, Trey Parker, and, of course, Billy West.

But on to my opinion on "the baby":

I remember watching Ally McBeal with my mom because I couldn't sleep, and that baby came on and scared me to no end. I'd go to school, and I'd see the baby. I'd be in Church, I'd see the baby. I'd play House with my friends, I'd see the flippin' baby.

Why must they remind me of my childhood fears?!

So, yes. I hate The Dancing Baby, too.
