#3. “That ’80s Show”
Smart Rating: 32.5Series span: 1/23/2002 - 5/29/2002Starring: Glenn Howerton, Tinsley Grimes, Geoff PiersonA group of 20-somethings navigates through San Diego in the midst of the trends and politics of the 1980s. Stereotypically, the punks, the material girls, the yuppies and the Madonna wannabes all hang together and find reasons to frequent a record store run by a former groupie. Regular characters on the show include struggling musician Corey Howard, punk-rocker June Tuesday and Corey’s father, R.T., who is representative of the decade’s mentality of buying oneself extravagant gifts and having an excessive lifestyle.
