Recorded it too, only watched the first part yet.  The 70's was great.

Sadly our education system is not as good as it use to be.  Seriously...we were taught to think outside the box, to explore things, learn as you go.  At least I was.  Now it is almost against some school rules to do anything like that.  We do have a lot of technology that isn't bad...but it is not as interactive and imaginative as those older computers and game systems were.  I remember one Pac-Man like game on a computer that was made up of ASCII characters.
