Netflix Stars - Square Pegs
2.25/5 - Some memories are best left in the past. I enjoyed this show back in the early 80's and looked forward to the DVD arrival last week, but it didn't age well. L and I tried to watch it. The laugh track was distracting. The so trendy at the time Valley Girl cadence of Tracy Nelson's character went right over L's head - "Why is she talking like that?!" We managed to watch the first episode - "It will get better, it was just the pilot," to L's fast-forwarding through the second and by the time "Pac Man Fever" started, she said, "I can't take it anymore!" The series was loaded with surprise guest appearances. Give it a try for your own nostalgia purposes, but it's just not appealing to the current teen generation.
