Ashes to Ashes
For those not in the know, "Ashes to Ashes" is the series that followed the British "Life on Mars." It features a female detective, Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes), being sent from 2008 back to 1981. In season two, which is what is starting this evening however, it's no longer 1981. Nope, now it's 1982. That means that even more time has passed since Darth Vader announced to Luke Skywalker that he was Luke's father and that their final showdown is rapidly approaching... or some other appropriate early '80s reference of your choice.
