Blind Date and Roger Lodge prepared us for the new millenium

As you may have noticed, we haven't posted many videos from the end of the 90s, particularly '97, '98, and '99. There is, however, a show that deserves recognition from the sunset years of the 90s. That show is Blind Date, hosted by the one and only Roger Lodge (aka Rodge Lodge and Rodger Lodger).

In the show, cameras follow around couples on blind dates while commentary in the form of funny subtitles, wacky animations, and cooky "thought bubbles" was added by the show's producers.

2 extremely annoying people

Poor guy couldn't work his magic

This guy gets trashed, makes a fool of himself, and goes home alone

NOTE: We know that the majority of the show didn't even take place in the 90s. BUT one year DID take place in the 90s and that was the year 1999. Who knows? Maybe Blind Date prepared us for the craziness of the post-9/11 2000s (or at least the annoying pop-up ads that you witness in some of the videos above)
