I did not intend to be so deceitful with this question. It's true that penicillin was synthesized and mass produced in 1957, but it was around for many years before this. Therefore, I'm giving full points to everyone.


Movie settings
American Graffiti took place in 1962

I had bad intel on this, so there are two correct answers (Kate & Allie began in spring '84, not fall of '83.)
Full points for all because of this.
