Dear Fellow TV Enthusiasts.
Have you ever wanted to step into a time machine and relive the golden era of television? Well, dust off your shoulder pads and tease up that big hair because “Moonlighting” is back, and it’s now streaming on Hulu! Grab your popcorn, and let’s take a stroll down memory lane.
For those of you who might not have had the privilege of experiencing this gem the first time, “Moonlighting” was a TV show that aired from 1985 to 1989. It was a perfect blend of mystery, comedy, romance, and, of course, the unmistakable charm of the 1980s.
Starring the charismatic Bruce Willis as David Addison and the ever-so-lovable Cybill Shepherd as Maddie Hayes, “Moonlighting” followed the misadventures of a private detective agency, Blue Moon Investigations. What made this show truly special was the electrifying chemistry between the two leads. Their witty banter, on-screen tension, and undeniable chemistry set the standard for TV couples for years.
And let’s not forget the iconic musical moments. The show introduced us to some memorable musical performances featuring Cybill Shepherd’s incredible singing talent, with episodes dedicated to song and dance. Who could forget “Big Man on Mulberry Street” by Billy Joel, performed with dazzling choreography?
But why did the Streaming executives not jump on this great peace of TV history before? One great thing about Moonlighting is the music – it is loaded with it! The problem is that none of the music rights have been sewn up, and Disney, who owned the show, believed it would be cost-prohibitive to get them now.
Not so Hulu – they went for it and got it! Hulu got the right for most of the TV show’s songs, specifically for the songs sung on-screen by Shepard, Willis, and the supporting cast.
So whether you’re revisiting “Moonlighting” or diving into it for the first time, you’re in for a treat. From its sharp writing to the nods to classic Hollywood cinema and the dynamic chemistry between Willis and Shepherd, this show has something for everyone.
So, kick back, hit play on your Hulu subscription, and get ready to be swept off your feet by the charm, humor, and nostalgia of “Moonlighting.” It’s the perfect way to relive the 80s and be reminded of why this era was truly unforgettable.
As the theme song goes, “Some walk by night, some by day, Moonlighting strangers who just met on the way.” Don’t miss out on this iconic TV show now streaming on Hulu. It’s a nostalgic journey you won’t want to miss!
Happy watching, and stay tuned for more blasts from the past!
