Is anyone else watching VH1's new dramedy Hindsight? A woman from 2015 is about to have her second wedding. She realizes her life hasn't turned out the way she expected. A quick ride in an elevator deposits her back in 1995, with the chance to do it all again. She finds out that knowing what happened the first time isn't always enough to get it right the second.

It's breezy, fun piffle, chockablock with 90s music and culture. I'd recommend it to fans of say, Felicity or Gilmore Girls. Once the time hop angle is out of the way, it's a resolutely non-scifi show, that usually only addresses the protagonist's knowledge of the future in terms of how it can affect her relationships or career, with the occasional pop culture spoiler thrown in ("Wait 'til he sees how fat Axl Rose gets!")

Anyone else watching this? My partner and I have found it a fun diversion, extremely useful as a palate cleanser after heavier fare. The main character has a bit of Nancy Botwin I Ruin Everything and Everyone I Touch disease, but it's fun.

It sounds like something my wife would like. If she likes it I will be in. If not, my tv time is limited, so it iss iffy. I'll come back tomorrow with the verdict.

Reporting back. I am totally in. Halloween episode in January AND Mazzy Star? I thought I would be moderately into the show, but I am fully invested now.

The soundtrack is so good. I imagine this show is appealing to anyone of a certain age.

I went ahead and posted it. Maybe it will be just the two of us, but that would be a shame. It's a really fun show.

You have sold me on this completely. Once I am all caught up on The Slap I will check this out.
