Old School Nick
This is a great podcast to look back at the old shows I used to watch when I was a kid watching Nickelodeon back in the day, when it was good. Tele-Cast is a great way to learn about the facts of the shows of our youth. In the Are You Afraid of the Dark episode when Kevin and Tara talked about guest stars appearing on the show, they may have forgotten that Frank "The Riddler" Gorshin had a guest appearance in one episode. I like this podcast not because of the memories, but the soundbites of the old commercial bumpers they play. Also in the AYAOTD episode about Tara's fear of the clown in the show, she should have seen Killer Klowns from Outer Space. That movie scared me in the late 80's. I love this podcast, so keep up the good work.
Greatest podcast ever!!
Thank you soo much for creating a podcast that talks about the greatest tv shows from two of the greatest decades!! You guys are hilarious and you make my work day go by soo fast. Keep up the great work!!
Wait! I saw that show?
Great show for all the shows I ever grew up on. There a few that I really didn't really remember seeing when I was younger, but after listening to this show, a flood of memories came back! Now I have a whole slew of shows to watch...
