Amazon's delivered my accidental purchase of the complete collection of the later 90s/early 00s dramedy series Cold Feet to my door, and I'm just as captivated by it as I was when it was still on air. But it is a bit strange, yet fun, to see that even if it's been just a few years since this was contemporary drama, there are some things dating it already. Take mobile phones for instance. Relatively rare in 1997/8 when the series began, and people asked to borrow someone's phone because in a group of six, only one person had one...one person moreover, who felt he had to justify the purchase of it by referring to the fact that his wife was heavily pregnant. And then the phone itself! Were they ever really that big? I mean, by this time, they'd already shrunk to hand-size, but nowadays, they're far smaller, and the heavy black rectangle featured in this first season looks huge in comparison.
I was going to try and create another icon this weekend, but I'm stumped: I don't know where to get any good pics from, and I'm not even sure what I'm looking for, so I've decided not to bother.
