Looking at these images I have to ask. Is there any other TV series which defines what was so drab about the 70's and what was to come in the 80's? I wouldn't include Dynasty because it began in 1981. Dallas began in 1978 and was seriously hungover from the awful dull colors of the 70's before blossoming into the vibrate and out-there fashion of the 80's. Kind of reminds me of the ugly duckling turning into a swan story.
