Friday Floss!

Here's another installment of Friday Floss, a fun quiz from that wonderful magazine, Mental Floss...

Who has time to watch tv anymore, and who would want to watch tv? Reality programming: blechhh, game shows: double blechh. Remember those "good old days" when we were younger and actually watched sitcoms?

The 1980s represented the Golden Age of Sitcoms. All the major networks complied an impressive alignment of programs in an effort to attract the attention of viewers nationwide. Take our quiz and find out how well you responded to the relentless advertising machine driven by sitcom-saturated network television in the '80s.

Sitcom Potpourri (80's edition)

Good Luck! (I got 85%, I guess I watched more tv in the 80's than I thought I did!!)

I got 60% and that was with my mother-in-law helping me on a couple of them. I'd probably do even worse with current TV shows.

If you do reread The Eight I will personally nominate you for sainthood. That is not the easiest read I ever attempted. I practically needed a scorecard to keep track of all the historic figures.

In The Fire, there is a brief synopsis of The Eight.. no fear..
I would love to know how you like it!

I'm glad you got The Shiniest Jewel. Let me know what you think of it.

Oy. I only got 55%! :-(

I got 75% which was surprising, given that I don't remember watching some of those shows... I've never been a great t.v. watcher.

50%, but as I was just a kid, I wasn't paying a whole lot of attention to a lot of those details. But they asked a question about Small Wonder! I loved it! (I was Vickie when I was 9 or 10 for Halloween.)
