Ashes to Ashes was the follow on series to the BBC’s hit Life on Mars series. There’s three series set between 1981 and 1983 in this crime series.
The star of the show is the gorgeous and very red Audi Quattro that is used in many a car chase and many of the main news stories from the day in the UK are covered like the Royal Wedding in 1981 and the Falklands War in 1982.
Its currently not available to stream so if you want to watch you’ll have to get it on DVD or hope they repeat it on Telly although it might make it on to the new BritBox service coming in 2019.
Ok, where have you been if you haven’t heard of Stranger Things?!?
Set in 1983, the eight episode first season is a gloriously accurate depiction of an 80’s small town American nightmare.
It looks straight out of the 80’s with its chilling synthwave music and a thoroughly gripping storyline throughout.
Part sci-fi, part horror and part Goonies it’s a must watch for anyone wanting a series that makes you feel like it’s the 80’s all over again.
On top of that season 2 (set in 1984) is great but not as good as season one in our opinion.
Hopefully season 3 of Stranger Things will make up for it which is out in July 2019.
Naturally as these are Netflix Original’s you can watch it on erm, well… Netflix.
What can we say about the Goldbergs apart from it quite possibly the funniest TV show set in the 80’s to grace our screens…ever!
The sheer amount of nostalgia present in this series is unbelievable from movie references like The Lost Boys, Robocop, The Goonies and Back to the Future to all the cool toys and games we played.
Special mention has to go to older brother Barrie who is absolutely hilarious throughout.
If you’re looking for warm and funny nostalgia from the 80’s then currently there isn’t anything else out there that comes close.
There are so many easter eggs hidden in each episode that you’ll enjoy finding these as much as watching the show.
The good news is if you are in the UK then More 4 has every single series (currently on season 6) available to watch and binge.
