Backtrack: Memorable TV Events

About This Episode

One of the defining experiences of growing up a GenX’er was appointment TV. When breaking news hit, you watched it live as the newscasters struggled to get the facts. When important shows came on, you planned your time so you can watch it when it came on, and when major events occurred, you were glued to the set because you didn’t want to miss anything. Unfortunately, a lot of the important things we remember most are not the happiest memories but they will remain with us for the rest of our lives.

  1. I was born in 1983, so my tv events were more like the last Seinfeld, the last episode of Dinosaurs (where i cried and cried and cried ‘cuz they died), the dream team’s final game at the ’92 olympics, and Kerri Strug busting her ankle at the ’96 Olympics.

    I remember by that evening on 9/11 I couldn’t watch anymore. The news had ran out of items to discuss and was just rerunning the planes over and over again even at like, 1:30 in the morning.
