Was the world different back then? I can name one big difference between the 80s, at least, and today: no internet. Today I find it hard to remember what it was like to want to know something and not be able to instantly find out.

The nihilistic 90s... that's how I used to think of that decade. I think we're still living in nihilistic times. That seemed like a shift from the 80s. How do you remember it?

Personally, I loved the eighties. I think the movies were better overall, although I think these days television is superior. With more stations and larger budgets it seems like the small screen has surpassed the big one.

Yeah, a lack of internet sucked in retrospect, but I think the big advantage was movies were a bigger deal because we didn't know as much. I remember seeing Conan (my Dad took me) and seeing the first trailer for Star Trek II and I utterly freaked. Overall I just think I had more fun in the eighties.
