BLURB:

In which nostalgia reigns and memory skips happily through those small-screen fields that have influenced Australia's current crop of spec-fic writers.


Stimulus Response:

Having made an off-the-cuff mental foray into the causes of relationship breakdowns, I tend towards the opinion that most people leave their significant other primarily because they're harbouring a magic-beanstalk-strength desperation to rewatch all their favourite DVDs - the ones that the current partner sat through only once and begrudgingly, and which remain on display only under great sufferance. Love, of course, is a many-splendored thing, but retro-kitsch wins out every time.
