It depends on how you look at it. I wont go through your list only to say most of it is totally irrelevant to me.

For me from a materialistic point of view, the 70s were the best time.
From a happiness point of view mid 90s onwards.

But everything always looks better looking back.

Time is slowly catching up with us, we are still living with the dream that our standard of living etc will continued to improve. This is extremely unlikely to be the case, we have in effect been living off the future. (I mean that from a whole world prospective)

Good post young un! I would say the 80's as a gut reaction but not sure if my memory is good enought to think back that far and come up with 20 things, might be a pet project for next week.

In some ways the 90's were ok and the 00's and I'm not in the mood to list the good things just now...

But in other ways those 2 decades were absolute total and utter hell. I was at secondary school for most of the 90's and it wasn't a good time and in the 00's excessively depressed with bad ###### going down through 3/4 of it...

And just to cheer us up we got tragic pop stars who thought they were all that :wallbash:

I hate the fact that I can now say "last century" cuz it makes me feel old :lol:

On reflection after having known four decades I have to say there were highlights in them all, but childhood often being a carefree time of our lives I have to say the seventies and early eighties were probably the best times in the winter, as as a child I suffered hay fever allergic to all pollen from age four through to age 32 and piriton a mild sedative was the only med available at the time so summer I slept a lot. Added to that good memories seem to be from that era specifically, whereas other eras I can remember both good and lots of bad because in those later eras one was a clueless undiagnosed AS adult trying to fit in in a very cruel dog eat dog society.

There is no specific era in my opinion that's better than any other it's just your personal experience within the time frame your thinking about. Others could have had a terrible time while you had happy memory's so the perspective will be different depending on a number of circumstances.
For me there were good times and bad so I can define both positive and negative aspects, it's all down to opinion nothing more.

Did anyone else here watch 'Back in Time for Dinner' over the summer? That made out the '90s to be a time of plenty (recession, Gulf War, Yugoslavian conflict and dotcom boom/bust notwithstanding).

 

As I recall, the family seemed to enjoy the 70s most, and likewise with the more recent 'Back in Time for Christmas'.

 

Check out some clips here.

They were good years. I remember TV shows used to be much better than now (on the whole), and I used to love the old shows. I tend to watch old shows now rather than newer ones. Not only were wagon wheels bigger, but tins of Roses/ Quality street etc were as well, and I kind of miss the old tins, rather than the new plastic ones.
