A Trip in the Wayback Machine

Ah!  What a week!  All of us at the office were so glad to have made it all the way to Friday.  To celebrate this accomplishment, we went out for lunch.

Over lunch, I asked if anyone had seen the new Match Game yet. Well...because there is a span of some 20 years between the eldest and youngest members of the team, those of us with a few more years under our belts had to explain what made the original Match Game so wonderful back in the 70's.

Next, we reminisced about all the great television shows we were forced privileged to watch during the 70's and 80's due to the CRTC's strict Canadian content rules.  Thus an entire afternoon of calling out our fond recollections ensued. 

Unless you are of a certain age, and spent your childhood and adolescence in The Great White North the rest of this blog post will be meaningless.  So humour me... 

Okay - you remember the Definition theme became Austin Power's theme song (Mike Meyers, b. 1963, Canadian...makes sense, eh?)
