I Liked It When I Saw It The First Time, Entries Beginning with N
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 "N' Sync" when it was called New Edition
I liked "N'Sync/Backstreet Boys" when it was called New Kids On the Block
I liked "NBA on ABC" when it was called NBA on NBC
I liked "NWA-TNA" when it was called WCW
I liked "The Nanny " when it was called Who's The Boss?
I liked "Natasha Bedingfield" when it was called Tina Marie
Blue eyed soul singers. Though Natasha Bedingfield is a better singer than Tina Marie, IMHO.
I liked "National Treasure"
when it was called The Goonies
I liked "Nellie McKay" when it was called Sinead O'Connor
Both singers are very political and have a cocky personality. Except that McKay has a mouth of a pirate.
I liked "Nellie McKay" when it was called Tori Amos
I liked "NesQuik Cereal" when it was called Crazy Cow Chocolate Cereal
The fact that they turned your milk chocolate was the center of both products' advertising campaigns.
I liked "New York Undercover" when it was called Miami Vice
I liked "NewsRadio" when it was called WKRP in Cincinati
I liked "Nickelodeon's All That " when it was called Disney's New Mickey Mouse Club
I liked "Nickelodeon's Lazytown " when it was called The Great Space Coaster
I liked "Nintendo 64" when it was called Pac man
I liked "Nintendo Game Cube" when it was called Nintendo Entertainment System
Hey I love Nintendo! In fact I want a Game Cube for Christmas, but I am a sucker for Old School! And NES is the king of Old School.
I liked "No Doubt" when it was called Blondie
I liked "Norah Jones" when it was called Sade
I liked "North Shore" when it was called The Love Boat
I liked "Not Another Teen Movie" when it was called The Breakfast Club (or any other John Hughes teen Film)
Well, the fact that in the end credits "Don't You Forget About Me" is playing is one point. But, Molly Ringwald actually makes a cameo in the movie! NATM also rips off a ton of scenes from old teen movies, there are other things too.
So four kids go messing wtih dead people and it describes they're adventures along the way. Sound familiar???
What else can you think of that is ripped off from the 80s?
