Remember When

Many great conversations begin with a memory. That is why I’ve recently found that there’s nothing that connects people better than reminiscing about their favorite childhood TV shows.

I grew up with a lot of PBS kids stuff like “ZOOM” and “Mr. Rogers”. As I got older, I enjoyed Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Boy Meets World on ABC’s “TGIF” lineup. And then there was “One Saturday Morning” for all of the best Saturday cartoons (i.e. Recess, Doug, Pepperann)

If you really want to get people “remembering” mention a few of these key three:

Next time you’re with your friends, ask them what TV show reminds them of their childhood. Not only is it a great icebreaker, but chances are you’ll find out something new about them.
