Remember when AOL was all the rage -- or enraged users with its painstakingly slow login process -- and it was the only way to connect to the Internet? Do you ever wish you could go back in time and relive the entire experience?
VH1 is giving you that chance when its new scripted series, Hindsight, premieres on Wednesday, Jan. 7 at 10 pm ET. The show will explore what happens if you could go back and do it all over again.
ETonline has an exclusive clip from the premiere, during which we meet Becca (Laura Ramsey), who -- on the eve of her second wedding -- wakes up on the morning of her first wedding day in 1995. Now, transported 20 years back in time to life in New York City, Becca must reconnect with her best friend Lolly (Sarah Goldberg) and convince her that she’s from the future.
The series, which will give Becca a chance to “make it right” in her life, will navigate how to make the right choices among all the bad ones (AOL addresses, carrying pagers, smoking in bars, etc.).
Because this is VH1 -- the lover of all things nostalgia -- expect plenty of references to a decade now 20 years in the past. If you need a refresher, I Love the 90s: 1995 is a good place to start. That’s the same year as O.J. Simpson’s murder trial, Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise,” and the premiere of the first Toy Story film.
And the references don’t stop there. Look for guest appearances from ‘90s stars Alan Ruck (Spin City), Daphne Zuniga (Melrose Place), and Mario Cantone (Sex and the City).
