Film industries as well as the internet seem to be having an 80s & 90s nostalgia.

What do y’all think of the recent movies & shows set in the late previous century, which usually refers to 70s, 80s & 90s, but can include the whole second half of the century?

Is that something new, dramas set thirty to forty years previously? That would be when now-established producers and writers were having their young, impressionistic experiences, and they'd want to produce films about it.

I find them interesting as examples of how hard it can be to recreate the past, even the recent past. It also makes you realize how subjective history can be. Sure I remember the 1980s, but I was a kid, so my impression of that time is from a kid's point-of-view. Someone 20 years older than me probably remembers the 80s in a totally different way.
