Nice try.


''Kickin' It Old Skool'' demonstrates why so many writers of non-sci-fi stories reach for the TimeTravel {{Phlebotinum}}. It desperately wants to be a lighthearted romp through Generation X nostalgia but by using a ConvenientComa, winds up repeatedly [[StealthPun hitting its' head]] on the [[DudeNotFunny basic unfunniness]] of its' core premise. Viewers are constantly reminded that the protagonist missed out on 20 years of his life, bankrupting his family with medical bills in the process; this is never explored in any dramatic depth, [[AnyoneRememberPogs though-hey look, remember Garbage Pail Kids]]!-but thorougly undermines it as a comedy.
