    Has There Been a Decade to Match the 1970's?

    I don't think so. Music, movies, TV, you name it ... nothing can touch the 70's.

            I'll give 70's best music, certainly popular music. I think the 80's and 90's both had better movies overall and the 90's had the best TV.

              I see a lot of women these days in equally groovy clothes. There's often a retro/70s aspect in it too (like those style of pants)

              The thing these days is that we in general take notice of more stuff, via the internet.
              I get why the 70s seem more appealing!

                The 70s were my Motorbike days we used to cruise the fairs and a café called "the Beachcomber " It was a Dump but they would let us sit in there all night with a Coffee ! it had a juke box and a pinball machine
                I had a Suzuki Supers six and thought I was the Bollox

                  i've never been there, but i always considered the 70s to be kind of a low point. the music was generally pretty awful from what i've heard, most of the tv is just unwatchable now, there were some good movies i think but not the best.

                      I think you could argue that the 70's were a golden age for American cinema.

                      The Godfather, Star Wars, Rocky, Superman, Annie Hall, Network, Animal House. And those are just the Hollywood movies.

                        i think you could make that argument for pretty much any decade. at least up until the time they decided that every single movie had to be about a comic book character.

                        but there's a reason i said the other stuff sucked but the movies just weren't the best. i don't think they were the worst by any means, i just wouldn't say that overall they were better than other decades.

                          The 70s were amazing. Vietnam ended and Disco began. The timing was perfect. I got to see a lot of concerts like Styx, Fleetwood Mac, Kiss, Kansas, BOC and a couple of Pink Floyd laser shows (1 on acid). Pot was below $20 an ounce until around 1978. We also had Jimmy Carter, gas lines and New Coke. And who needed a car phone when CB radio was everywhere? It was like a chat room, only you got to hear people.

                              The budgets for a lot of media have gone up since the 70's. I think media has also been made by businesses rather than artists for the most part. I'd say The Godfather was really one of the greatest movies ever made, I don't think most decades have a film that really compares to it.

                              Music...I guess if you're into classic rock, you'd love the 70's, but otherwise not.

                              The tv...ok, I think the tv was mostly pretty shit back then, but maybe people had better things to do that to watch tv? It seems like people were generally happier back then compared to now.
