Eaaau, the 80s
Unashamedly 80s, Silver Spoons was pretty decent TV show and I really can't imagine my childhood without this series. The strange thing is that I don't even remember much from this program (I just know that I liked it), as I don't think I've watched it since the 80s, so I'm doing my best from memory. The main character was sort of a take off on the character of "Richie Rich", 12 year old Ricky Stratton was a boy who had an obnoxiously wealthy father who was pretty immature himself. His father had a mansion that was decked out with toys, games and a giant train set. There were some memorable characters (Alfonso, Derek, J.T., the prissy Dexter) and episodes on this show. I do remember this series being sort of like a cartoon, where the kids had unrealistic adventures in the span of 30 minutes. The series could range from pretty cool to cringe worthy. There was a hilarious episode where Ricky hired Mr. T to be his bodyguard. There was also an episode where Menundo guest starred,...man I feel pretty damn old for knowing who Menundo are. I remember the networks gave up on Silver Spoons after a while, it then went into cheapo syndication where it dragged on for a couple more years. They were likely on target getting rid of Silver Spoons after only a few years, because I believe the series overstayed it's welcome. It ran from 1982-'87, when it probably should have went off the air in 1985. When the kids got older it became pretty dumb watching them repeating the same old antics and trying to be so cool with their Duran Duran style and riding that train when they were 17. If it ever comes out on DVD I'll look it up for nostalgia's sake. I don't know why I did this commentary, and I think I'll check out now.
