    I would say variety shows in general don't hold up very well. For sheer cheese factor, they are fun, and to see your favorite performers when they were young (and in some cases, still with us) is also nice, but that type of entertainment is pretty much dead and was dead by the time the decade came to an end.

    But don't feel bad, because 80% of MTV's videos don't hold up nowadays either.

The kid who was listening to Kiss in the 70s, tho, was also looking at the costumes and images and theirs always seemed cooler than Demon or (to me) the truly lame StarChild. At any rate, the one two punch of bitter disappointment that Peter was no longer involved and the decidedly non-Kiss sound of the album stopped me from purchasing any more records from the band. I will have to dig this one out of my pile of records and give it another spin, just for the Ace content.
    I was always an Ace guy. To be honest, I stopped buying KISS albums for awhile not long before Unmasked was released. KISS at this point was woefully uncool and I was starting high school, so it was the wrong time for me to fly my KISS flag high. When I finally first listened to it around 1986 I was floored by how much I liked it (and at that point my thing was mostly thrash metal, which this album was decidedly not even close to!), and around the same time I finally heard Elder (had a tough time finding that album at that point!) and that blew me away even more.

    What, decent quality movies shot on film, with an actual script, real acting and everything? Who wants that!

    Oh yeah, that's a good one. I have vague memories of watching these all the way up to Pink Lady & Jeff. Whenever I go back and watch clips, I am struck by just how bad these were. I even tuned in 3 years ago when NBC tried to revive the format with Martin Short & Maya Rudolph. That pretty much confirmed the death of the genre.

    I just went back and watched a couple episodes of Space:1999. In all honesty, I don't remember the show as much as I remember the cool Mattel and Corgi Eagles so I don't know if this is a mater of not holding up or just being bad from the start. I know a lot folks here have fond memories of the show.

    In fact, watching the show made me think of Brian for some reason, which made me think of Plaid Stallions, which made me think of another thing definitely left in the 70's-

    Frozen pizza was terrible in the 1970s, I don't miss it save for those little Aloro lunch pizzas.

    Microwave cooking was mostly gross as well.

    Remember when almost EVERYONE wore turtlenecks ? Not just as casual or sportswear, but as business and formal wear as well.

    I've even seen wedding photos where the groom and his groomsmen wore them instead of a shirt and tie !
