It should be noted that popular entertainments, whether TV, film or print literature, are products of their times and cater to an audience of that time; thus, they will always bear more resemblance to the society that produces them than to the time period actually depicted. For instance, ''HappyDays'', set in the 1950s, looks far more like the 1970s, the decade when it was produced, than does ''{{That 70s Show}}'', produced in the early 2000s. Likewise, ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'', a high school show produced in 1999, mostly looks and feels like late-90's high school life despite taking place in the early-80's. Even Aeschylus's depiction of the Trojan War depicts homoeroticism among the Achaeans because that was what was expected of manly aristocratic figures in the Athens of his day, despite the fact that it probably wasn't as big a fad at the time of the Trojan War. It's also why speculative fiction has such widely varying pictures of "TheFuture", and why ''TheJetsons'' (originally produced in the 1960s) portrays a future of technological marvels, but still assumes the push-button kitchen of tomorrow will be presided over by an apron-wearing housewife; it was beyond comprehension that automation in the home would result in women having lives outside it.

Obviously, things get pumped up for movies. Whether or not you believe this is an [[AcceptableBreakFromReality acceptable break from reality]] or [[SeriousBusinees THE]] [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks WORST THING]] [[DarthWiki/RuinedForever TO EVER HAPPEN]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis EVER]] depends on the viewer, not to mention the restraints of time[=/=]watchability of an event (most filmgoers won't be impressed with a slow, boring event, however world-changing -- and this isn't the LowestCommonDenominator we're talking about; many films have been blasted for this), invoking RuleOfDrama and so on. This isn't restricted to film -- ancient plays and literature have been doing this on and on.
