Those are all in the right timeframe, but there was another one I'm too lazy to go back and look for.

Hostages were released in Jan '81, so that's off by a few months. I guess asking them to be that precise is asking a lot

ETA: On a similar note, Reagan is president, and the hostages are still in Iran, so that puts the first episode squarely in Jan of 81. Yet it's warm weather. Best to just enjoy the story and not look too closely.

Exactly. Those dudes shite themselves and released the hostages as soon as Reagan took office.

A president with balls.

A season long thread will definitely be needed.

News report on Iran hostage crisis places it around 1981, yet there's mid eighties music playing.


I mean, if it were playing on the radio in the scene that's one thing, but I really don't have a problem with them playing 80's on a tv show set in the 80's.
