The Purple Rose of Cairo, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish by Douglas Adams was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fast Forward. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ninja JaJaMaru-kun or Alpha Mission.
