I Liked It When I Saw It The First Time, Entries Beginning with I
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 "I Love The 80's" when it was called The News
I liked "I'm Lovin' It" when it was called It's a Good Time for the Great Taste
Two of the most successful ad campaigns in McDonald's history.
I liked "I, Robot"
when it was called TRON
All they did was switch programs for robots [walking programs]. The exact same story.
I liked "Idlewild"
when it was called Xanadu
Both have soundtracks that are popular than the movies themselves. However, I will always love "Xanadu".
I liked "Independence Day"
when it was called Aliens
I liked "The Indiannapolis Colts" when it was called The Baltimore Colts
Not a movie, but a lost legacy. Bob Irsay still sucks. [Ed.'s note: Even when he's dead?]
I liked "Indy Racing League (IRL)" when it was called United States Auto Club (USAC)
I liked "The Insider" when it was called Entertainment Tonight
Not be confused with the movie with Al Pacino and Russell Crowe, the TV series features Pat O'Brien, ironically a former host of "E.T." and "Access Hollywood".
I liked "Internet" when it was called Bulletin Board System (BBS)
I liked "It's All Relative" when it was called All In The Family
A blatent rehash. Even in death, Carroll O'Connor outacts Lenny Clarke.
What else can you think of that is ripped off from the 80s?
