The edges of the continent have reached a stability imitating that of pre-(H)istory. Thanks to the wealth of unearthed media, as well as "eye-witness" accounts from those from the towers, we can be reasonably sure that our culture is accurate. It has become very fashionable to imitate this lost time period, to the point that it is no longer even an imitation. I do worry sometimes that our way of life may become stagnant and refuse to move forward, forever locked in the amber of the past.
All that being said, I find the genre of shows called "Sitcoms" to be immensely enjoyable, even if many of the references are lost to the void of time.
