Retrosexual: The 80s is yet another non-show from VH1 in which we are shown a bunch of short-clips from our beloved 80s pop culture fare mixed in with commentary from the non-show regulars who remind us how, in retrospect, something was either completely stupid, rabidly wonderful, or somehow needlessly comment as to why this particular thing is relevant to their growing up in the 80s (which is usually just an obvious narrative anyway that many of us might make comparisons to).
