JAMES LILEKS:

Last week I had a screengrab from “F is for Family,” an animated show that is not for everyone, because the F is for something else deployed with remarkable frequency. It’s set in the time of my early adolescence, so just about everything they get right makes me hurt. It’s so, so, so 70s, and not in the happy-drippy retcon style – oh they had cheap weed and everyone was cool and no fatal STDs and awesome fashion! No child, no, no; it was awful. They get that right.

The fashion was not awesome, but the lack of major STDs was pretty cool, not that we properly appreciated it at the time. But we were starting to by 1983, which was, as Lileks says, “the early middle of the beginning of the 80s.” The seventies really lasted until about 1982.
