I'm usually more nostalgic about the first half of the 80s, but it depends on my mood.

I'll probably go the same, but start a year earlier - so 1984 - 1988. If I was to pick one then it'd be 1985. Great toys, tv shows and music!

1983, since that was the last time that the Baltimore Orioles played (and won) the World Series. Also, Thrillermania, the first Madonna album, the "old Bond" vs. "new Bond" rivalry", Prince's 1999 era and "Delirious", the soap operas and game shows of the era, the "toy commercial cartoon" boom (MOTU, Care Bears, Cabbage Patch Kids), the last hurrah of the Atari age and the PC boom, the peak of New Wave music, the launch of The Disney Channel, and also that it was the first year that was truly distinct from the 1970s, but before the excesses of the second half of the decade became the norm. The last gasp (or nearly last) for popular shows that started in the '70s like M*A*S*H, Happy Days, Three's Company, and Alice, while shows like Remington Steele, Family Ties, Cheers, Knight Rider, and Dynasty were early in their run and very popular. Technology was at that magical point where analog tech was perfected while digital tech was still in their beta stages (Remember the Show 'n Tell Picturesound record/tape players?). Sadly, I was born a little too late to experience it, so I've had to rely on secondhand material like cassette tapes, magazine back issues, and surviving VCR recordings from this era. A great time that both Boomers and Generation Xers would enjoy.
