This episode of Postmodern Sitcom talks about stereotypes around social class on TV shows in the 1980s and how the content affects Generation X’s opinions today. Social class on TV shows is prevalent regardless of era. That isn’t necessarily a good thing when the content leads to unrealistic perceptions of reality. My guest and I watch Silver Spoons and then talk about social class on TV and in society. Also in this “very special episode,” we talk about the worst way to decline being offered drugs at a party.
