  • GREAT!!!

    Funny as hell. Love the stars they have to talk about it.
  • Oh yes.

    Even If I was born away from the 80's, it's in my heart. It's a homage to me. A good era of music. Where everything is nice. This show features the stuff and songs made from 80's. Cartoons, movies, and almost everything at the 80's! 80's is the time that NES rose. 80's is the time that real music grows. 80's is the time for the foundations for the modern stuff. God, bless the 80's
  • VH1 looks back on the Yuppie decade with both mockery and reverence via an immensely entertaining and fast-paced format.

    VH1 hardly knew what they were getting themselves into when they adapted the original BBC format to recreate this show for American audiences. The show was a wild-fire smash that spawned spin-offs and sequels, and with good reason. Broken into 10 episodes, each looking at one individual year, the show mixes current comics and stars from the past reliving the 1980s in all their cheese-tastic glory.
    From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the Brat Pack, and from Madonna to Who's the Boss, everything that made the '80s what it was gets examined and ridiculed. Current comics like Michael Ian Black, Hal Sparks, and Mo Rocca provide hilarious sound-bites on nearly all topics, while people who were a major part of the '80s (Kim Fields, Dee Snider, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Mary Lou Retton) provide the viewpoint of people who really experienced making the '80s what they were. Songs, movies, trends, toys/gadgets, TV, politics: everything gets a look, but nothing stays on the screen too long, with most topics getting 60-90 seconds of time.
    There are also a few standard segments, with each episode having "Born In", "Babes of", "Hunks of", and "Make-Out Songs of" whatever year is being showcased, plus a Then-and-Now comparison.
    This is one show that anyone who lived through the 1980s needs to see, as you will really enjoy reliving memories, and for anyone younger it's a fantastic and hilarious history lesson.
  • This show is for anyone who grew up in the 80's, misses the 80's or missed the 80's!

    This show is about the 80's and it tells you about the cars, the toys, the world, the people, the music and the moves. The show is a hour long and it starts in 1980 and goes to 1989. they have many different types of i love the 80's like 3-D and strikes back. It has many guests on it the "Weird Al" Yankovic, Chris Jerico, Nelson, Spinal Tap, Paula Abdul,Hal Sparks and many others! They will show clips of the show, movie, product or person at the time there talking about. At the end of the show the fast talkiing John Moschitta recaps the whole show!
  • Yes!

    One of the best pop culture profile shows ever. Almost as much fun as being there.

    This show profiles the madcap fun of the decade in which so many went to school, played video games, heard their first rock records, and made hair decisions some would later call "unusual." It features stars who were in their youth at the time, and the original actors and musicians of the time. Every year has its own episode, with quotes, clips, toys, shows and other weird artifacts aplenty. Some of these will make you wonder what the heck we were thinking; all of it will make you smile.

    I catch this show every time it's on.
  • This show is great, it was great for those who were born and/or grew up in the 80's

    I was born in 1977 so essentially I was an 80's child. I can't believe some of the stuff they dug up on the 80's commericals toys it was a pop-culture overload. The show has become so big now a show about pop-culture is pop-culture. I wonder how many more times I can say pop-culture, well that's 3 so far. It was great bringing back some of the child stars of the 80's who I as a kid grew up watching, and the other stars that made 80's tv good. They also had the toys and comemrcials that were interesting as well as the weird style of clothing. I can at least say this at least we weren't in the early to mid 70's look how they were dressed as kids.
  • i love this show

    Oh my God i love this show so much they go back to the 80's and make fun of the most famous Fad's of the years. and they have great comedians who kick jokes smooth fast and on point i love it, this show has me dieing on the floor. o yeah the old this i hate is that i loved the 80-90 3D... that was probably a joke since 3D was in style at one point but that sh*t aint work

  • I Love the 80s was the greatest idea for a television show ever.

    Whoever came up with this idea should seriously get a huge raise and a big fat promotion. I mean, come on! People sit around and talk about the 80s. When VH1 airs it, I watch it the whole way through. If I come in and they're halfway through 1980, I will watch through to the end of the decade. I can probably quote half of it to you right now. I can't stop laughing when they talk about the electronic football game. Michael Ian Black saying that choosing between Tiffany and Debbie Gibson is like choosing between his children. Anything anyone said about New Kids on the Block or Menudo. Hal Sparks singing every song they mention. This is just a fabulous show. I don't even consider it a guilty pleasure. I proudly admit that I love this show. I even bough the board game. So there.
  • I like the show!

    This show is great! The people tell you how life was like in the 80s. They also tell you what was popular at the time, and what movies and tv shows they watched. It also tells you some popular events at the time. SO if you ever need any help about the 80s, this show is for you.
  • This is a great show for anyone that grew up in the 1980s. This is like a time machine, and as you return to the big hair days, you realize that times were more simpler. After an hour of watching, you're back in reality.

    This is one of my favorite shows, because for one hour you get to relive the past. Any show that helps you relive the good o'l days is a great one in my book.

    ‘I Love The 1980s’ takes you back to music, fashion, fads, and movies from the 1980s, or that specific year that's being shown, say 1981.

    This is a show that you say to yourself.

    "Oh yeah, I remember that."


    "Oh my gosh, I can't believe I wore those."


    "I can't believe I liked that movie or song."

    Sometimes you look back and say.

    "I wish times were just like they were back then."

    But... 60 minutes later you're zapped back in reality and in the current year.
  • The 80's?... I LOVE THE 80's!

    The awesome show I love the 80's is perfect for any 80's child. If you went to elementary, jr. high, or high school in the 80's you will especially appreciate this show. How this show works is that there are many actors, commedians, musicians who talk about different items that were either a fad or something that was introduced for the first time. They talk about toys, T.V. shows, movies, clothes, actors, music groups, cars, commercials, and events that occured during the decade. This show triggered alot of memories for me. There is so much that we forget over time and it is so much fun to kick back and see mini-flashbacks of your life from the 80's.
  • A trip into the way back machine

    Great show because I get to remember the good old days of the eighties. Going to highschool, living at home, no worries! Boy wasn't that great. I like the fact that they remind of events that were happing that year and the people who were making headlines. Of course the music is great as well.
  • Thanks for the memories.

    I was flipping the channel one day and came across a marathon of I Love the 80's. I was hooked. This was my era, The 80's was when so much happened in my life, I was a teenager, graduated high shool and college, got married. The 80's was my decade. It's great the way VH1 reviews the decade with humor. I had to laugh at some of the things knowing I had done that too. It's a fun refreshing way to walk down memory lane. If you grew up in the 80's you need to watch this show and relive your youth. Thank you for putting this show on.
  • This is a very entertaining clip show for both teens and adults.

    This is a very entertaining clip show for both teens and adults. It focuses on the pop culture of the 80's, its trends, popular movies, popular music, popular food, and more. The opinions of the many celebrities on the trends are usually very funny especially Michael Ian Blacks. I was born in 1990 so I missed out on every single day of the 80's which some say is a good thing and some say is a bad thing. While watching this show I learned of some great T.V. shows, music, and movies of the 80's that I missed and some of those became some of my favorites. My parents also enjoy watching this show and reliving their high school/college past but I don't think that children under 13 would appreciate it that much and some parents might think it is inappropriate for their children. If you enjoy watching this show then I also recommend" I Love The 80's: Strikes Back" which is the same type of show but with all new 80's pop culture trends.
