Recurrent Events 5/28/16: 'Full House' House For Sale, Lost 'Return of the Jedi' Trailer Surfaces, Go-Go's Reunite

Welcome to your weekly source for retro pop culture news, the Recurrent Events! It's hard to believe that May is almost over, but there are some fun things I'm looking forward to in June (and pretty much all the summer months!) The new Voltron series on Netflix is inching closer. I'm excited to watch Ghostbusters and TMNT 2 in theaters. And we are just 2 days away from potentially getting more Ecto Cooler in our house!!

Next week, look for a new Streaming the 80s wrapup of new movie/TV titles coming to Netflix and Amazon in June. I'm also working on a new giveaway for the summer but in the meantime, check out this fun retro-themed Summer Giveaway at the Midnight Post!

Here are the articles posted this week on RD80s:
I'm very excited to watch a new documentary on the Garbage Pail Kids. The new trailer was introduced to me this week thanks to Strange Kids Club and it looks like the producers have really done their homework. Check it out...
