As we get closer and closer to Back to the Future day (October 21st, 2015) we are looking back on what the movie Back to the Future II predicted would be around in 2015.

Our first installment is a cinematic masterpiece that is the zenith of my generation’s teen entertainment. It stars Britney Spears and was written by a young Shonda Rhimes. And I’m pretty sure I’ve told like 5 people that I’ve seen it when it came up in conversation. That was a lie. Ladies and gentlemen, Crossroads. ? 0:00 Not only have I refrained from seeing this movie since it came out in 2002, I have also been pushing it down our post queue for, like, two months. So I think a lot of our Pop Culture Blind Spots are…
