I was 8 in 1978 and not in the kind of family where eight year olds got taken to see American high school films. In 1979 our TV blew up ( in the middle of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, which was deemed suitable family viewing) and we didn't get a new one in the household until 1989. Accordingly there are certain gaps in my popular cultural knowledge.
Which is why I am, even as I write, watching for the very first time....
I am mesmerised. It is so bad!! Tell me - did people really dance like that?!
And how, if Betty Rizzo got her self knocked up did she get to be the First Lady?
And why, oh oh why on earth does she now have a facebook page?
