Another attempt for VH1 to recapture some of the magic of "I Love the '80s"
I watched this five part mini-series when it originally aired on VH1 in November of last year. At first, I thought it would be cool since it seemed a bit like VH1's "I Love the '80s". Unfortunately, it turned out to be nowhere near as interesting or enjoy as "I Love the '80s" was. Not only was it mostly boring, but it also seemed poorly edited at times as well. There some good segments here and there thanks to commentators Barenaked Ladies, Robert Carradine, David Faustino, Savage Steve Holland (one of the most underrated directors ever), Scott Ian, Ron Jeremy, Cindy Margolis, Bret Michaels, and best of all, Gene Simmons. Most of the commentators seem out of place though (for example, who cares what Jenna Jameson has to say?), which makes the mini-series seem extremely tepid. VH1 again tried to recapture the magic of "I Love the '80s" with "Black in the '80s", an even worse mini-series that aired in 2005. If VH1 really wants to bring back the magic of "I Love the '80s", they should just do another edition of "I Love the '80s" instead of airing knock-offs of it. It's really quite sad when a channel rips off its own programming. I give it 3/10.
