VIDEO: 80s TV shows go 8-bit


It's been an unusually grand time for 80s-specific nostalgia this past week.

First, there was the video which reminded us of all the toys we used to play with as kids and now this one manages to bring up TV and video game memories all at once.

The rather brilliant 40 seconds converts some classic shows into various 8-bit games, effortlessly seguing into one another.

We're impressed, nostalgic and a bit annoyed with this stupid decade we're currently in.
