Three decades ago, one of the greatest years in television and film occurred. Classics like Lethal Weapon, Predator, Dirty Dancing and Good Morning, Vietnam graced theaters. The Cosby Show, Cheers, Golden Girls and Murder, She Wrote took over our television sets. It was a prime time for entertainment.
For this special episode, we’re not only going to look back at the year, we are GOING back to 1987. With the magic of technology and time travel, this podcast is being presented to you directly from our HO Time Capsule vault. THIS is 1987.
