TV Memories from the 80s

Astro re-running some old TV shows from the 80’s their channel 70. Most of us don’t get to watch them since they are usually shown during the day time, unless you work at home or are on leave. Some of the ones that are doing the rounds are Knight Rider, Magnum P.I., MacGyver, Family Ties and The Bold & the Beautiful.

Here are some more shows I’d like to see them re-run just for the camp value:

The Greatest American Hero – Man, this show was fun. Great song, Connie Selleca and that funny bumbling hero with the Chinese word on his chest. As I recall it used to run on Thursdays at 8.30pm…

Manimal – You shouldn’t take this show too seriously, its scores low on the credibility scale. Simon MacCorkindale plays this guy fighting crime, and he can change into animals. But most episodes he only changes into a hawk and panther. Then there is that weird transformation sequence with the bubbling skin on his hand…. Weird.

Sledge Hammer! – By far my favourite sit-com. It ran a great first season, in the 2nd one they totally lost the plot. Its about this trigger-happy cop who is in love with his gun, and who always clueless about what is going on around him. My favourite scene was when he was faced with a ticking time-bomb, and he coolly whips out this small booklet titled ‘How to Defuse a Time Bomb’.

A-Team – Corny, good old-fashion fun! Hannibal Smith, Faceman Peck, B.A. Barracus, and Howling Mad Murdock. After a while you can notice all the episodes tend to follow a certain pattern.

Fantasy Island – Tell me who didn’t watch this show back then?! “Welcome to Fantasy Island, I’m Mr. Roake, your host…”

I have so many more TV memories from the 80’s, I’ll continue this blog one day…
