The Weekly Links: 'Lethal Weapon' TV Series, Sean Astin Wants 'Goonies 2', Chris Cornell Covers Prince/Sinead O'Connor

Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! The Rediscover the '80s website is officially 4 years old, logging 842 articles! A heartfelt thanks to everyone who visits the site on a regular basis. I really wish this site was my full time job (maybe someday!), but I really do enjoy the interaction with each of you who visit the website or social media. It has kept me motivated to continue rediscovering the '80s every day!

I didn't get a chance to post The Weekly Links last week as I was worn out from a long week at work, but I still managed to post several new articles to the site:
It's October so I know many of my friends have started their annual Halloween countdowns. I don't usually do that for RD80s, but you will see some Halloween articles creep in this month. I did update the '80s Halloween TV Specials, Episodes, and Movies playlist on the YouTube channel, so bookmark that and enjoy throughout the spooky season!

My favorite video this week is the next installment of the DIY Prop Shop. The TMNT movies from the early '90s were a must-see for me and having a canister of ooze glowing in my bedroom would've definitely "outshone" my green lava lamp. Check out how you can create one of your own...
