Living in Oblivion 

Fox’s That ’80s Show takes a bad trip back to the center of the cheese.

Only a year ago, we were waiting for the Greatest Can’t-Miss TV Idea Ever to debut, the XFL—remember that?

With the built-in WWF audience and additional multimedia mega-hype from NBC, how could it possibly fail?

    This is a society where, on one side, fad diets and unreasonable surgeries are embraced to control weight loss and, on the other side, we are presented with unrealistic, size-zero beauty. It is refreshing to have a show that presents the undeni- able fact that healthy diet and exercise are the keys.
