An expert panel of geeksperts take a trip back in time 30 years to the great geek year of 1987. Expect analysis and quips as they look back at Predator, The Princess Bride, The Lost Boys, RoboCop, Near Dark, Spaceballs, Hellraiser, Masters of the Universe, *batteries not included, The Running Man, The Witches of Eastwick and many more. Our panelists will remind you why you should “never fight a land war in Asia," and "This is the 80s! Nobody likes reality anymore."
