A time capsule that will uplift your soul
14 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Ahhh those where the days.

Im very pleased with this miniseries. The creators really took their time to explore a decade in all of it's funky facets.

you will see people commenting who actually lived and worked in the 80's and not the sorry(&^%$)stars of today which is like a fresh breathe of air in the midst of Tokyo.

The 80's energy explodes from your screen and by watching this series Americans and all that joined the western ideas and lifestyle will see a blueprint of what could be our way out of the mess that we are in right now (2013)

This series does justice to the explosion of creativity that is the 1980's

My feeling after watching two episodes... let's deal with some nasty stuff first and than join me and my friends in another energy burst like back then ! this show proves it can be done!!
