Favorite 80s TV shows

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by basstotheface, Oct 1, 2010.

  1. So I did a search and couldn't find anything on old TV shows from the 80s.

    I'd have to include-
    The Cosby Show
    Sanford and Son
    Magnum PI

    As my top 3. I'm blanking right now so I'll probably add more later.

    Your turn.
  2. Boi....

    You don't even know what the 80's smelled like

    Cosby Show
    Family Matters
    Different World
    Married With Children, though I guess that may be more of a 90's sitcom

    Cartoons -
    Muppet Babies
    Ninja Turtles
    Inspector Gadget
    Maya the Bee
    Eureka's Castle

    Crime Story, baby!
  4. Family Matters is a good one.
    As for a different world, the only redeeming quality of that show for me was Dwayne Wayne, and an appearance by 2pac.
  5. I thought Sinbad was great. And you can not, not, NOT leave out Marisa Tomei and Cree Summer.

    Glynn Turman is one of my all-time favorite actors
  6. Pretty sure I remember an episode of the Cosbys with Sinbad playing a car salesman.
  7. Can't say I've seen that one; I highly recommend to all of you Sinbad's standup called "Afros & Bellbottoms." You'll be in tears, and a bonus for a good ol' square boy like me: no swearing!
  8. here you go


    in the early 80's i was in germany, my dad served in the army as ground to air artillery but my mom said i loved one cartoon it was german dubbed Mr. T cartoon.

    ADD: my mom told me awhile back that i didnt watch a lot of cartoons because i did not like them all that much, i loved commercials though, i loved the muppets and sesame st. she said i played with my toys and they made me go outside in the yard or play with other kids. TV watching was mostly at night. even Saturdays i was outside instead of watching cartoons (i was 10 when i started watching Saturday morning cartoons).

    Fridays! Where Michael Richards got his start:

    Also Taxi, and the original Late Night with David Letterman.
  11. ^ Taxi was great show, I forgot about that one.

    Anyone remember "Soap"? It was a late night soap opera parody that was funny as heck.

    The first season of Greatest American Hero.
    It went downhill in a hurry.

    Look at what's happened to me
    I can't believe it myself.
    Suddenly I'm up on top of the world
    Should have been somebody else.
    Believe it or not I'm walking on air
    I never thought I could feel so free
    Flying away on a wing and a prayer
    Who could it be?
    Believe it or not it's just me...
  15. Forgot about Night Court, and Cheers is a good addition too.

    Taxi was awesome.

    Soap, where Billy Crystal got his big break as the gay son.
    I will never forget the scene with the macho cowboy his sister is dating where Crystal says, "well, we can't be that different. We shop at the same stores."
    or something close to that.
