September 1990 Pop Culture: Movie Sequels, James Marshall & The Hothouse Flowers

Start listening

There’s a lot of pop culture in the September 1990 issue that will need revision sooner or later. Like: a report on the cancellation of 21 Jump Street, just weeks before its revival in syndication. And: making James Marshall One To Watch off the strength of one season of Twin Peaks, before he went off the grid. Or: an extensive feature on The Hothouse Flowers, perhaps to justify the expense of whoever paid for Christina to go to Dublin and interview them. And while giving Die Hard 2 a mere 2 stars is, of course, a matter of taste…it’s not taste we share. All this and much more awaits you in our latest podcast!
