      The Royal Rumble

      I heard this year's show wasn't all that good.

            Pop culture of 2013...it's a little bleh to me, too revolved around reality tv, mindless celebrities and technology, like it's been for the last 7-8 years. I am liking the more appreciation for 80s nostalgia, but thats about all.


            There's more appreciation for 80s nostalgia? At least from my experience, 80s nostalgia has been fading, and 90s nostalgia is the center of attention.

              Ghost Mine was great. Hoping there's a season two.

                        Ghost Mine was a show on Syfy channel this month and last month. It had a group of hard rock miners searching for gold in Oregon's Crescent Mine. Two paranormal investigators accompanied them in an attempt to determine if the location is haunted. Depsite airing only six episodes, it is my favorite show in years. I recommend it to anyone who has an interest in either mining, ghosts or American history in general.

                          Yes, in music, and fashion..but I guess it is slightly fading in some ways, But tell me where is the 90s nostalgia?, it's sure isn't being that noticable.

                          I'm a 90s kid but I only liked the 90s to a certain level, I don't care for the fashion as much as i do for 80s fashion nor the music (though there was great music in the 90s), But I do miss some 90s fads/trends and definitely TV and movies of the decade.

                                Well for example on RetroJunk, it seems as if the 90s is the most common decade for an article. On YouTube, the 90s kids videos get more traffic than the videos for the 80s or 00s counterparts. In news articles I have seen people make comparisons of today vs the 90s and I've noticed revivals of Power Rangers and other 90s franchises.

                                    I can't wait for Notorious Hauntings. It's another Syfy Channel paranormal show due to air in the United States this spring.

                                      Oh yes. Supremacy by Muse was released as a single this year. People actually thought there wasn't much to talk about by February? What a joke.

                                          The end of Walking Dead season 3 and the return of Doctor Who/Game of Thrones. Those are all generic answers but I don't watch much TV besides those. An exciting thing has happened on Netflix instant though, they've added the first season of many classic Cartoon Network shows as well as the WB Justice League/Justice League Unlimited and Batman Beyond series.
