Here is the answer to the 80s timeline:
- The Equal Rights Amendment failed in Congress.
- The short-lived comedy series Police Squad! Lasted just 6 episodes before getting cancelled and spawning the Naked Gun Movies
- Richard Gere showed Debra Winger he could be an Officer and a Gentleman. In 1982, and in that year After The Fire released this German song, which when it is translated into English means “The Commissioner” here is Der Kommissar
