Anyone notice the poster Adam ripped off his wall was a rare Revenge of the Jedi poster and not a Return of the Jedi (I'm sure it was modern copy in real life)? Love Pitfall!

Just watched this Return of the Jedi episode last night. Do the makers of this show intentionally not care about continuity? The weekend he was trying to see the premiere of Return of the Jedi (which was summer 1983) he had a Ghostbusters poster on his wall (which came out summer 1984). Great show, I'm just bothered by these types of things.

If you listen to the narration, he always talks about it being Nineteen eighty-something. Trying to precisely place when this takes place is sort of outside of the spirit of the show.

Here's a page devoted to what you're seeing:

Think of it as the 30-year-ago reminiscences of a 40-something guy.

Yeah, I chalk up that kind of stuff to "I guess I remembered things incorrectly". But it doesn't mean it isn't fun to try and catch some of these things

I've noticed the "nineteen eighty-something", and figured the vagueness and inconsistencies might be intentional. Which is fine, bu as DancnDude said, it's kind of fun to catch the inconsistencies.

They are intentional. I read an interview with the show's created (ummm...Adam Goldberg), and he said he wanted to write this as someone who remembered things that happened to him as a kid from the vantage point of the narrator, who remembers the things that happened but not every detail. This way he could embellish the stories however he wants. So 1980-something, is intentional. All he's saying, is, it happened when he was a kid and it happened sorta like this.

It made me thing of something that happened this summer. I was talking about a story I always tell about a trip to the Wild Animal park at Six Flags here in NJ, and I was talking about this with my sister and our families and my sister remembered the story EXACTLY how I did. This was about 40 years ago, and I had just assumed I have begun to embellish the story by now, but we remembered it the same way with the same details. And I don't think my sis and I have talked about it in at least 30 years.

I must admit, he remember more about the 80s than I do. Then again, I am older and was drunk much of the 80s.

Well he did memorialize a lot of it on video tape.
