VH1: 1975

It's hard to get me to sit still for TV, but in flipping channels I came across this show. I was laughin' and yellin' at the television all by myself the other night. Land of the Lost was my favorite show! : Shows : I Love The 70s : 1975 : About the Episode: "Live from New York it's I Love 1975! Smack in the middle of the decade, 1975 is hard to forget. It was the year you were begging Mom to stay up and watch that new show Saturday Night Live. The year you requested your first pet, the no-maintenance Pet Rock. And the year Jaws scared you enough to make a vow of no ocean swimming...ever! Your favorite TV show featured a group of remedial students called the sweathogs. And you drove your teachers crazy with imitations. Up your nose with a rubber hose. Oh-oh-oh Mr. Kotter! While everyone in America had their own difficulties with the new metric system. There's a little sweathog in all of us! You're a shining star, no matter who you are Shining bright to see what you can truly be. Your Panasonic 'Dy-no-mite' Plunger 8-track player was blasting Earth, Wind and Fire. Playing the first home video game Pong was a lesson in reverse ADD-patience! You dug Baretta, the crazy detective with the cockatiel named Frank. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was about birds of a different kind. Everyone could relate to the crazy McMurphy, Jack Nicolson taking on the institution of Nurse Ratched. Feelings, oh, oh oh, Feelings-nothing more than Feelings! Albert Morris taught us that a song, and a feeling, could lead to some violent thoughts. The Secret Lives of Plants showed that plants had feelings and talking to plants became the fad-du-jour, right along with mood rings - put one on and learn how you're feeling. If the ring turns blue, you're happy! Black and you're stressed, or you get stressed knowing you should be stressed. How stressful! "
