Recurrent Events Sept 10 2016: 'Full House' Now Available To Rent, 'Alien Nation' Reboot, New Mario Mobile Game In December

Welcome to your weekly news update for retro pop culture headlines, the Recurrent Events! Is it me or does a short week after a holiday seem to go by slower than a normal week. Always seems you've got the same amount to do and yet one less day to do it! Anyway, thanks for taking a timeout from your football viewing to check out this week's news. The Kia commercial with Bo Jackson was easily my favorite thing. It just might be my favorite commercial ever. Check that out and the articles I posted this past week on the website:

My fave video this week came via Mental Floss and is a home movie of a couple kids walking onto the set of Ghostbusters II and interacting with the cast and crew. Very fun to watch and just imagine yourself being one of those lucky kids...
