Episode 17 - 1983: Risky Business and the Thriller video

 

After a couple shaky movies of late (most notably the nightmare that was The Net), we finally land back on a film that holds up quite well: Risky Business, starring Tom Cruise, Rebecca De Mornay, Joe Pantoliano and the always formidable Bronson Pinchot. Also during this trip back to the early 80's, we revisit the debut of the music video from Michael Jackson's Thriller. As always, the episode is available on iTunes, or you can play it directly below... and after the media player we'll have more links related to 1983:
