    The 1980s Made Us

    http://channel.nationalgeographic.co...-that-made-us/

    National Geographic has been running a mini documentary basically making the case for the 1980s being a great innovated decade. The PC Boom, Cell phones, Video Game culture, Music Video, Cartoons, its been pretty good so far

    I've been watching most episodes.

    It's a pretty interesting series, however, I was very disappointed in episode 4. It's titled "Masters of the Universe" and is all about Wall Street, C.E.O.'s, etc.

    In the novel Bonfire of the Vanities, the traders/brokers et al are referred to by the MOTU abbreviation - that might be where it was picked up from. (I don't know offhand if the phrase was applied to those guys prior to the book coming out.)

    Yeah, I know.

    I was reading the info for the episode and was hoping it'd partly be about the He-Man phenomenon. Unfortunately it wasn't, though still a good informative episode.
