I knew I was forgetting something very important in yesterday’s post. There’s a relatively new show on television called “The Goldbergs” and it’s set in the 1980’s. You know what that means! Disco pants!! That’s right and so far I have seen two episodes featuring girls in spandex disco jeans. One episode is the final one (23) from the first season (2014) and has a girl wearing what appears to be a black pair at a party thrown at the Goldbergs’ home. The other episode is the first one from the third season (2015) and features a girl wearing a red pair again at the Goldberg’s home. These are not very long scenes but definitely worth seeing for fans of shiny spandex jeans. It’s also great because this is a newer show and it’s nice to see these pants appearing on television again. Whether the ones in these episodes were originals or American Apparels I couldn’t say.
I don’t care much for new shows but I’m sure there are greats ones being produced that I will probably only see years from now in reruns. The Goldbergs seems to be a great family show (no sexual innuendos, no promiscuity, no heavy kissing) but there are a lot of bleeped-out implicit swear words. So it’s nice to watch a show like this although there are still a bit many unbelievable romantic relationships. Yes, they are an attractive family but it is hard to relate to all that when you were brought up in an environment where those kinds of relationships were not only disapproved of but also highly discouraged.
So hopefully you can check out this show and those episodes in particular. I’ll be watching to hopefully see more disco pants in future episodes.
As today is Halloween the TV stations are showing marathons of holiday episodes. I was just watching one of “Friends” where the character Monica was wearing a shiny, black, skintight catsuit, and while it wasn’t disco pants, it sure looked amazing on her!
I did not go anywhere today so I did not wear any disco pants. Was feeling a bit bummed and didn’t want to leave the house. Tomorrow maybe.
EDIT: Upon further thought perhaps “The Goldbergs” is not really the greatest of family shows. The father constantly calls the older son a moron, he’s incapable of saying “I love you” to his family members and generally seems like one of those guys you wouldn’t even want to ask the time. If this characterization is at all true–which at the very least the ‘moron’ name-calling is as can be evidenced in the actual video footage of the real Goldbergs at the end of some of the episodes–I certainly pity the true Goldberg family. But we’re watching this for disco pants, right? Okay.
