Welcome to a special Retro Reaction. This is the 20th Article in the series and the début of something special.
Think of this as one of those "best of" episodes that all TV series have after a certain amount of time. Also if your new to Reaction here is a great jumping on point.
Welcome to Retro Reflection.
Most Nostalgic Reaction
Without a doubt the look back at my favourite holiday destination Skegvegas and Butlins back in Retro Reaction.
We said at the time:
A difficult reaction. Butlins in 1994 was like discovering a new playground. Returning to it is like returning to that playground. That's not entirely negative there is comfort in what you know.A difficult reaction. Butlins in 1994 was like discovering a new playground. Returning to it is like returning to that playground. That's not entirely negative there is comfort in what you know.It will never be quite the same as 1994. But that won't stop me returning. Despite this old analyst's rule of never crossing his own timeline.
Now it has been announced that work will be done on the outdoor pool we pictured. It is to become a fountain area and will allow for an extended Splash Water park (see photo below)
Here at Reflection I greet this news with a mixed reaction. For one it’s inevitable. That doesn’t stop me from buying a day pass, chaining myself to the old pool and not allowing any more work to take place…. No I’m kidding honestly
Best Children’s Cartoon / Program
Best live action the Power Rangers especially the Green with Evil mini series. This brought back the memories of weekday mornings.
What we said was
This is one of my all time favourite’s and the most crazy TV series of all time.Like Mortal Kombat – it mixed Sci fi / fantasy with marital arts and came up with this bizarre concoction.It's like this – Big talking head and incredibly camp robot choose teenage superheroes to fight some outer space bad guys. Oh and the teenagers had cool transformers as to fight in. Those transformers were THE hot toy of 1995.
The Best Cartoon was the seriously dark Hey Arnold that we looked at in this series of reaction articles
Best Superhero Reaction
Superheroes mean a lot to Reaction. In fact they get at least one article in a set. But the one that brought me the most nostalgic goodness was Batman the Movie on the Amiga.
OK maybe the best movie tie in game..
OK for the Amiga...
Yes it's very debatable. But I had an Amiga through school and this one brought back fond memories.
I'm not the greatest at Video Games but had a lot of fun completing this one... Yeah that's right it's one of the FEW games I have completed.
For more on the Amiga take a look back to season one with the 3rd ever article.
That's about it for Retro Reflection
But before I go there's the one thing that makes Retro Reaction what it is.
That's you guys. The truthseeker has this thing called analytic. He can see what you like and I'm flattered that the figures show that you like what you read with Reaction.
Guess I’m not the only one who has a soft sport for video tapes, old TV and of a nostalgic disposition.
Thank you all for taking this journey down memory lane. Next week the yellow brick road of reaction continues as we look at some great puzzle games.
But for now as ever...
Have a great dayyyyy!!
