I Liked It When I Saw It The First Time, Entries Beginning with G
This page is inspired by the comedy of David Spade. Yes, David Spade. During
his stay on Saturday Night Live, he would occasionally put things down that
seemed to copy things before them by saying something like "I liked 'Black Sheep'
the first time I saw it, when it was called 'Tommy Boy'". So this is my
attempt at ranking on the movies and
television programs of the nineties (and present) by
pointing out what they copied from the eighties. Since there always seems to
be a lot or unoriginal ideas in Hollywood, this should be an easy page to fill

I liked "G-Unit" when it was called NWA
I liked "GI Jane"
when it was called Top Gun
I liked "GI Joe Sigma 6" when it was called GI Joe: A Real American Hero
Or GI Joe: Extreme. Take your pick but it's still not as good as the original.
I liked "Galaxy Quest"
when it was called Spaceballs
I liked "Gamecube" when it was called NES
Nintendo current and the system that made them famous. Personally, I have more fun on the NES than the Gamecube.
I liked "Gangs of New York" when it was called Far & Away
Tom & Nicole vs Leo & Cameron
I liked "Garth Brooks" when it was called Randy Travis

I liked "Gilmore Girls" when it was called Square Pegs
The adventures of two teen girls...how original!
I liked "Girlfriends" when it was called A Different World
I liked "Glory Road "
when it was called Hoosiers
Both movies based on true stories of small town basketball teams going from nothing to winning it all.
I liked "Godsmack"
when it was called KISS
I liked "Good Charlotte" when it was called Nelson
Nelson is the worst hairband as for Good Charlotte being the worst band of the pop punk genre. Enough said. And strangly, Benji & Joel, from Good Charlotte, are also twins like the Nelson brothers.
I liked "Grey's anotomy" when it was called St. elswhere
No love drama but medical drama
I liked "Guns N Roses" when it was called The Eagles
Lets see no new material for the whole decade, rumours of the band splitting, members refusing to work with each other then a new album appears. Hmmm
I liked "Gwar" when it was called The Turtles
I liked "Gwen Stefani" when it was called Madonna
You can tell Gwen grew up in the 80s!
I liked "Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl" when it was called Toni Basil's Mickey
Both sound like a cheerleader theme, and also has cheerleaders in the videos.
I liked "Gwynneth Paltrow" when it was called Molly Ringwald
What else can you think of that is ripped off from the 80s?
