Hmm, let's see...1980s...college life...Midwest...why does the premise for this new TBS show to begin airing November 16 sound so familiar? Could it be because it's the exact same premise for my novel? Well okay, maybe not exactly exact: Glory Daze is set in Wisconsin while Three Daves is in Illinois (HUGE difference), and the TV show is about a group of fraternity guys whereas the novel centers on one girl's dating plight. But even still, quite the exciting coincidence, no?
Yet more evidence that the world craves its 80s!
But as thrilled as I am about the impending blast from the past, I'm not getting my hopes up too high. Mostly because of these promo photos of the Glory Daze cast:
Um, what's wrong with these pictures?
Don't worry, I'll tell you:
#1 Where are the mullets?
#2 Why is that Polo collar not up?
#3 Why does the blonde's hair not extend
to beyond the top of the photo frame???
These are small things I know, but come on---there was nothing small about hair and shirt collars in the 80s, so to me, those seem like rather large details to miss. Ah well, I'll still be tuning into TBS on November 16 to give Glory Daze a shot. Who's gonna join me?
