Shows that don't hold up well to your nostalgia


I was recently re-watching some of the older James Bond movies. While they are great in some aspects, there are other things that don't hold up as well over time, in my opinion. There are certain things that are funny, but I don't think were intended to be funny. And the treatment of women and other cultures can be, shall we say politically incorrect, today.

I'm sure this can happen to any movie or show ... not intending to single out James Bond here, I just happened to think about these things while watching them, which I didn't do even a few years ago (when these movies were already "old").

It's funny how our memory of things over time doesn't match up with the "reality" or our experiences watching something with fresh eyes...
