The Weekly Links: 'Back To The Future' Turns 30, Unaired 'Married With Children' Pilot, He-Man M.U.S.C.L.E. Figures

Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! Happy 4th of July! Hope you have a safe holiday this weekend. It was a busy day yesterday with the Back To The Future 30th anniversary so I decided to post the Weekly Links today. My small contribution was a recent video I found of a family visiting many of the filming sites earlier this year.

I also released a new podcast this week! My pal Wyatt and I decided to chat about our memories of Knight Rider and our recent review of the first Lion Forge comic book. I've got a whole sister site dedicated to the RD80s podcast which you can experience all the episodes and of course connect with all the feeds available.

Here are few RD80s headlines from this past week:

With all the #BTTF30 hype, I thought I'd group all the links I gathered from this past week that celebrated the film's debut 30 years ago:

My favorite video this week comes from Mondo Media via Laughing Squid and features what would happen if '80s movies were produced today. The Christmas Story is a little over-the-top with the violence, but pretty funny...
