Does anyone remember the TV show Train 48? I absolutely loved this show back in around 2003, and now that I look at that wiki page, I’m actually shocked it went on until 2005! I thought it was only on for a year…
The basic format of the show was a bunch of commuters meet on their daily train home. It was filmed every day on that day so they would talk about topical news/pop culture things, as well as carrying on characterization and plot points. It was quite interesting at the time, just because it broke a lot of conventions and it was just addicting to come home and sit down and watch these characters who oddly started to feel like friends.
I just recently remembered back to this show because I’ve started taking the GO Train home, where this show was set.
Basically while every normal person out there is Netflix Marathoning Game of Thrones, I’m sitting here lamenting the fact that I can’t find this show online ANYWHERE!
The only thing on Youtube is this clip:
Which has all 3 of my favourite characters.
And this was the awesome theme song:
Come on, cruel and unfair world…get me this show!! I would actually pay money for it, too!
Nostalgia is a tricky thing though. What if I watch it and it’s not as awesome as I remembered it to be?
