Just use a line of dialogue from one of your scripts.

In the '80s and '90s video mags were popular. My dad had a couple of those. These magazines focused on VCRS, video cameras, and related electronic equipment and video releases on VHS and laserdisc. I had one that a local video store published, and I had a couple of issues of Whole Toon Catalog - this was a magazine that catalogued cartoons you buy on VHS, laserdisc and CAV laserdisc. I still have a few old WTC mags lying around. I also had a catalog from a vender who sold old, used and rare stuff on VHS tapes. Are video mags still a thing?
I haven't been to any video stores in years. I would imagine 21st century video mags would focus on DVRs, whatever electronic equipment people use to record video with now, DVDs and Blu Ray.
I don't have any scripts written that use '80s/'90s slang - yet. I'll give you some examples of sentences some characters might use. I have to think about it. I'll get back to you on it.

Exactly. That's probably why Nintendo stopped publishing Nintendo Power a couple of years back. People aren't going to want to read a magazine for gameplay tips and tricks and strategy guides when they can just look up gamefaqs online.
A huge bulk of info is available to anyone online.

I sort of miss the original popular practice of American TV shows having full 24~ episodes per season, whereas the current trend is TV shows, particularly on cable or streaming, having 13 or less episodes per season.
Though I don't miss the longer seasons too much.

I remember certain '80s and '90s kids' cartoon shows used to be shown on TV with bumpers. These bumpers were shown before and after commercial breaks.
The programming bumpers shown before commercial breaks would include the phrase "We'll be [right] back after these messages" or "(name of show) will be back after these messages" (or variations of it), except for the bump before the final commercial break, which would usually say, "And now, these messages" (or variations of this phrase).
The bumpers shown after commercial breaks would include the phrase "And now back to the show" or "And now back to (name of show)" (or variations of it).
Why did they stop producing commercial bumpers for kids' cartoon shows?
But my guess would be that it has something to do with something we call "the internet" and something we call "smartphones" (and similar)... in that; the average person these days doesn't have the same attention span as someone who grew up in the 90's or before without distractions like smartphones with internet access, and the internet in general for that matter. I can just watch pretty much anything on TV, on the internet instead, same for anyone else, even listen to radio stations via the internet too.
(If I'm right in thinking that you're asking me about your "why did they stop producing commercial bumpers for kids' cartoon shows?" question.)
