Bacalhau to the Future

1986Nuno Markl’s comedy series, “1986 A Série” finally dropped today on RTP1. I’ve been excited about it since August last year and I think it might be the first time I’ve watched something in normal TV time instead of on Netflix or DVD since… well, since 1986. I’m not a big TV watcher. I won’t bullshit you by pretending I understood every word but it’s sufficiently close to my era (I was 17 in 1986) that I could relate to the characters, and now I’m past the stage of oohing and ahhing at all the songs, books, films etc crammed into every frame, I think I’ll go back and have another look, armed with the Wikipedia pages about Mário Soares and the Eleições Presidencias de 1986, which form the backdrop to the teenage kicks. If you want to watch it, it’s still up on RTP’s website but I’ve no idea how long it’ll last.
