Before the days of VOD, Streaming Video (i.e. Netflix), FEPs, and even DVRs, there was simply appointment television. And Sunday nights was a time for family to gather around the TV and watch together.
I happened to stumble on the following NBC Sunday Night at the Movies bumper and, after hearing it, immediately brought me back to the late 1980s when it would run every Sunday night.
It’s incredible to me how a music (song, soundtrack, or jingle) can immediately transport one back in time. And this one did it to me, for sure.
...And here’s a bonus…NBC’s 1980s fall TV promo videos.
1982-1983 “Just Watch Us Now”
1985-1986 “Let’s All Be There”
1987-1988 “Come on Home”
Now THAT was television ;-)
