4 thoughts on “The Tribune Years – 1985

  • Silver Bullet is a HORRIBLE movie. One of those films I went to with my parents and we were appalled. I was 18 or 19.

  • I was wondering if you have the episode for:

    The Breakfast Club (1985)

    • Unfortunately, the episode that would’ve had The Breakfast Club is on YouTube, but the man’s tape cut off right before the Breakfast Club review was going to happen. If only S&E had reviewed it first instead of third. The partial episode is posted by TheClassicSports:
