The Weekly Links: Supergirl, Greatest American Hero, And CHiPs All Being Remade

Welcome retro-holics to another edition of The Weekly Links! Time to once again take a look at the '80s nostaliga that popped up in this past week's headlines. My week included a trip to the theater on labor to day with my 9 year old son to see Ghostbusters.

The video of the week comes from Mashable and features our favorite F.L.A.G. employee and the original smart car.
