    huh? I just don't get it.

    What are things in the past that were immensely popular that you just didn't get?

    Movies? songs? Singers? TV shows? Toys? whatever.....what are some things that were just immensely popular that you just didn't understand why.


    A few for me:

    Troll Dolls (forgive me A. Troll)
    Martin Lawrence movies
    Adam Sandler movies
    Wil Ferrel movies
    Michael Jackson (back in the day)
    Van Halen


    How about you?

    I was more worried about your choice of Boy George. I happen to like him.

    Anything is viable....its someone else's opinion.

    Personally, I liked Start Trek:TNG, but every other one "lost my interest".

    Funny story. I was so out of touch with "pop music" by the time that came out....I was on a date with a girl at a baseball game (farm team). They played that and EVERYBODY in the stadium knew the song and dance and got up to do the dance. I was the only one who had never heard the song and had no idea there was a dance to go to it. I think I was pretty proud of myself at that moment (especially after watching them do the dance).

    Well, some of the hairstyles - like mohawk, etc. Never did get it. The other thing I still don't understand is hairstyles for men that require work. I comb my hair once a day - after that, it is on its own.

    Situation comedy lives me cold. I don't like seeing people made fun of and I really don't get the humor at someone else's expense. After all, if it is done to you, it normally is no longer funny.

    Most youth/teenage fashion I don't get. Even when I was of the proper age for such things, it seemed really stupid to me.

    For example, the style right now seems to be not only oversized, sagging pants, but massive, skirt-length t-shirts on top of that. It looks like these guys are either trying out for the part of Alvin, Simon, or Theodore, or they're dressing up like small children wearing their father's clothes.

    Oh, and when did sunglasses go from stylish and functional to being an arms-race of ugliness? Good god, people.

    Now get off my lawn.

    Oh, and that 80's style for women with the long sweater and tights. It didn't look good then it doesn't look good now.

    Word to all, except maybe not the mullets.

    You obviously didn't see the classics (Poppy making pizza with the "special" ingredient, Deloris, George pushing the kids out of the way in an almost fire emergency). I could go on and on. As you can tell I'm in the "best comedy TV show every" camp. I love subtle & sarcastic humor ... they were the masters.
