Originally posted by dwatersDoes Michael Ian Black have a room he sleeps in at the VH1 studios? Is he on-call to tape these little bits 24/7? the guys seems to have been in every episode of at least the 80s and 90s. He always does the same deadpan take on everything he talks about.
Probably. He did joke about that during the segment on caller ID. (Why do I need it? Who else is gonna call me?)

Originally posted by DMCI think the series is getting a little ridiculous. The 80's Strike Back series was not as good as the first, and this Part Deux is about the same if not a little worse than the first 90's show. Plus, I don't know about you but it's a little weird seeing people in their mid-30s, pushing 40, pining for the days of Spongebob Squarepants. I know it's supposed to be an adult cartoon, but was 1999 *really* a big part of these people's upbringing? This is a nostalgia show, and I just don't know how nostalgic my generation should be for Varsity Blues and Win Ben Stein's Money.
Remembering the 70s and 80s is one thing, but they should have left the 90s shows to commentators young enough to appreciate *growing up* in the decade, which would probably mean they should have waited another couple years.
I distinctly remember having 80s retro parties while it was still the 80s. I'm surprised 90s nostalgia has taken this long. I think it's mostly because the 90s sucked, were completely boring, and had no character at all.
EDIT: Still, I suppose they're better than the 00s, which to date has best been defined as the decade of being nostalgic for the 80s.
