Comment 1980 TV Test Signal - 12/3/09

I thought I could share this with all of you!! I can still hear that irritating tone of this TV test signal. Broadcasts only started late in the afternoons and if you had nothing to do you could stare at this test pattern and get hypnotized for the rest of your life. We are so spoiled nowadays with technologies like MNet, DSTV and Cable. Back in the days we made Television now we watch it.  Enjoy 😉

Comment Dallas 1980’s TV series - 11/6/09

The Dallas TV show was a 60 minute prime time soap in the 80’s. The series was about a family that had created a dynasty out of the Texas oil industry. From the South-fork ranch, they wheeled and dealed in the business world and dealt with their personal lives involving love, affairs, jealousy and even hate. The 1980’s series pretty much revolved around trying to outmaneuver other people both financially and personally and to keep others from doing the same to them.

Comment Bionic Six - 10/22/09

Wow, Yet another entertaining animation from the 80’s.  Bionic Six, hmmmmm, can you guys remember?

Thanks to metacafe for a little background on the storyline.

The main character, ‘Bionic-1’, was a machine-enhanced human being using bionic technology, much like The Six Million Dollar Man. On one of his missions, Bionic-1 brought his family along so they could enjoy some skiing after the mission ended. There was an avalanche caused by a landing UFO and the Bennetts were all buried alive under radioactive snow. All, but Jack (whose bionics made him immune to the radioactivity), were thrown into paralytic comas. Unsure how to save them, Bionic-1 brings the family to Professor Sharp’s lab. Sharp deduces that giving everyone the bionic treatment would cure them of the radioactivity too. Each family member was given a specific bionic power, and they formed a team named Bionic Six.
