A couple of random recommendations:
- I don’t rubber stamp many TV programs like this, but I’ve now seen several episodes of VH1’s I Love the 80’s (and 70’s) series, and they tend to hold my attention. Some of the regular commentators are silly (Luis Guzmán is greatness), but they do an admirable job of digging through a bygone era one year at a time.
- Go here and watch the first six commercials. It helps if you’re a sports fan and/or a Tracy Morgan fan, but Reg should make you laugh anyway. There aren’t many commercials that are really funny anymore, but these are exceptional.
