From Mary Poppins to Jack Bauer, this episode is about pop culture's influence on a variety of expectations we might carry around with us. For these children of the 60s, teens of the 70s, and young adults of the 80s and 90s, we start with a trip down memory lane, mentioning a few favorites, such as "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show." With limited channels to access, these two also remember spending hours watching game shows and soap operas, neither genre especially helpful in setting realistic expectations for acquiring wealth or building healthy relationships!
One aspect of pop culture that has been inspirational is food! Lynn's love for cooking dates back to childhood on the family farm where Sunday nights found her in front of the television screen eagerly awaiting Julia Child's cooking show on PBS. Flash forward several years and it's no surprise that she is currently recommending Netflix's "Somebody Feed Phil," featuring "Everybody Loves Raymond" creator Phil Rosenthal.
