“What kind of idiots were we then?,” asks Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers in his videotaped introduction of the 25th anniversary showing of Wayne’s World. “And what kind of idiots are we now?”
The iconic 1992 comedy Wayne’s World is now a quarter of a century old, yet Travers affirms, as does the film’s legion of loyal fans, that the film is indeed a snapshot of its culture. Starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, the light-hearted comedy focuses on Wayne and Garth, two energetic youths that run a cable access program out of their parents’ basement. The two wind up hitting big-time exposure with a lofty contract from a manipulative TV mogul (Rob Lowe), who plans to milk the show for enormous sponsor money.

The fourth episode of ABC’s summer series, Greatest Hits, aired on Thursday, July 21. This time, music from 1990 to 1995 was featured. The show seemed to give us only a sampling of the music of the early 90s. With many genres popping up during this time, this episode seemed to graze over a majority of them.

Onto the next one! ABC aired the newest episode of its six-week special series Greatest Hits on Thursday, July 14. This time, we took a look back at the best of music between 1985 and 1990.
This episode promised an appearance of probably the biggest genre of the period: hair metal-rock. The show would deliver on this promise, but in a lighter way than we expected. There were also some notable absences in the show’s lineup. Despite this, the night was still very fun for all.

WARNING: SPOILERS OF ARTISTS AND SONGS AHEAD.
The nostalgic 90’s and early 2000’s was brought back to life on the last episode of Greatest Hits on ABC.
The show started with a cold open featuring Arsenio Hall and Kelsea Ballerini, and R&B group All-4-One (seen above). Hall claimed that he was a part of the group for a short time in the 90s, but was given the boot because of “creative differences.”
