This is another show that I never watched, although I certainly feel like I have, and feelings are, as we all know, very important. Welcome Back, Kotter has a very contemporary feel because it deals with a struggling public school teacher trying to figure out how best to serve his students. Also, it features John Travolta, who is ageless. Ok, no, Travolta is the opposite of ageless. Wow, can that man age! The fashions seem really outdated, which, of course, they are. But the annoying trend of catchphrases is strong in Kotter. It’s funny to think about how, these days, all of the annoying trendy things to say, basically get written out in texts, in emails, and in tweets. In the 70s, people said these things out loud. This makes me feel all squirmy even to think about. But they did it! That’s pretty hard-core.
