8-Bit of Fun

Season 1 Episode 3

Dan Reynoso discovers a world where the 80’s are alive and well with people who continue to embrace the simplicity of 8-bit. He’ll join a band that breathes new life into outdated computers and classic video game consoles by transforming them into musical instruments with a sound that’s both new and old. He’ll also meet a group that is still making games for the NES, a game console that hasn’t released a new game in 20 years. And in the end, he’ll learn that just because something’s old, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be new again.
