Retro TV

After hearing about the charm of the '80s show Moonlighting for literally decades, I figured I ought to see for myself.

I only sampled a little of the first season.  Plots were nothing special - though situations got a little more ridiculous and physical-comedy than usual - and evil-doers were not scary by today's standards - the pilot's bleached, Mohawk-haired punk looked silly - but the chemistry between the stars was immediate and charming and obviously The Whole Point.  (Though '80s fashions make a fun side dish.)

Young, young Cybil Shepard and Bruce Willis are worth visiting.
