    Classic Childhood TV: Little-Known Gems

    Classic Childhood TV: Little-Known Gems

    When it comes to the pop culture that I was exposed to, it's safe to say that I had an unusual childhood. I clearly remember my mother blaring out 70s boy band, The Osmonds, from the kitchen while I lip-synced Spice Girls, and, later, S-Club Seven, in my bedroom. Mum introduced me to The Jackson 5, while my Dad preferred Pink Floyd and The Who.

    Anyone Remember ‘Prince of Persia’? Anyone?

    Anyone Remember ‘Prince of Persia’? Anyone?

    Does anyone actually remember Disney’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) or was that just a weird fever dream I had? Has it really been ten years since it came out? Seriously, does anyone remember this movie?

    METV Gems To Binge Watch

    METV Gems To Binge Watch

    If you grew up in the era of black and white television programs you might want to check out METV at night. This network is currently promoting what they call “The summer of me- METV. They are showing classic sitcoms specifically between May and August. There are three golden oldies on their regular prime time lineup that currently are on back to back Monday through Friday. Enjoy a blast from the past of the television days of gas guzzler vehicles, rotary phones, twin beds for married couples and plenty of action and suspense. These were the decades when network sensors watched closely and would quickly say you can’t do that on television. Take a trip down memory lane or watch these programs for the first time. They will keep you engaged and give you a break from the trials of the real world.

    TV Talk: Happy Days (1974-84)

    TV Talk: Happy Days (1974-84)

    I first heard about Happy Days when I was about eleven years old at theatre camp one summer. Another camper I was close with would constantly quote Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli during pre-rehearsal exercises; being the impressionable preteen I was, I thought it was cool despite having never seen the show before.

    TV Talk: I Love Lucy (1951-7)

    I've heard about I Love Lucy many times in my life but never actually sat down to watch it with my family - who were also fans of it back in the day - until this past year.

    Gold Key TV Tie In Comics.

    Gold Key TV Tie In Comics.

    Gold Key comics was started in 1962 as in house publisher by its parent company Western Publishing. During its run from 1962 to 1984, Gold Key had printed out comics from a wide verity of TV and movie tie end titles. Among the genes would include science fiction, horror, espionage, adventure, and family fare. However, they made a good portion of their sales of comics from popular TV shows from the period. Some titles published were Star Trek, The Man from UNCLE, The Twilight Zone, Adam-12, and My Favorite Martian along with other TV series. One of the most striking things about Gold Key was they continued to publish a TV related comic long after the series had ended thus creating more fans of whichever series.

    Disney+ or Disney-?

    Disney+ or Disney-?

    How do you combat a social systematic issue that has existed long before your own existence, must have been the question Disney + creators asked themselves when they decided to implement ‘outdated cultural depictions’ messages before the viewing of classic animated films, such as ‘Dumbo’ and ‘Peter Pan’. Discussion as to whether these outdated depictions should be recognised, edited out or even be shown has been circulating the media since Disney’s decision. Although, popular films such as ‘Pocahontas’ and ‘Aladdin’ do not contain the disclaimer message, even though they clearly contain racial and misogynistic stereotypes, demonstrating Disney still has a long road to full exclusivity and multicultural understanding.
