    Although I hardly watched any primetime fare during the 1980s (especially during college), I did catch a few "It's Your Move" episodes. It was minor, but it did strike my funny bone a bit. Probably due to the premise about a calculating and manipulative kid, interfering in adult affairs, which seemed unique at the time. I don't think it was particularly 'edgy,' but it did seem clever. And, definately more amusing than the usual suspects of banal, taped 80s family sitcoms that typified the era.

    I remember a couple of sitcoms that aired on the WB durring the summer of 99 that I would love to see released...The first of those being the Park Overall series "Katie Joplin". The second being "Movie Stars"....Im not sure who starred in that show but it was absolutly hillarious.

    I would like to see "The Charmings". I do not remember that sitcom at all but reading the summary on another site has intrigued me.

    The Kids From C.A.P.E.R.

    I bet I'm the only one who remembers this show. It used to air on Saturday mornings back in the mid 1970's and only lasted for a few episodes. It was basically a ripoff of "The Monkees", except they're detectives. The songs were pretty catchy and each member of the group has special powers. Don Kirshner produced it but I've heard rumors that the C.A.P.E.R. tapes are forever lost. [​IMG]

    Not exactly obsure to the Brits but I would love to see the British "Tenko" series shown. (Paradise Road, the movie, was a poor man's version of this.) One of the best things A&E ever showed, but as was stated in a previous post now all they do is Bill Curtis and biography. [​IMG] [​IMG] !!

    Tenko is apparently available in Region 2, I think.

    Lots of shows people have mentioned here I want but one that was short lived and really obscure that I want is the 1975 David McCallum Invisible Man

    There were several shows listed on this thread that I'd love to have: The Kids From C.A.P.E.R. would be awesome--I still have their album from when I was a kid (except I don't own a turntable anymore), Werewolf, The Charmings.

    The one show, though, that I'd like on DVD above all others would be Peter Benchley's Amazon. It ran for one season in syndication sometime around 1997, and was like Lost in many ways (I actually prefer it to Lost).

    Okay, here's one that I'd like but can't recall the name -
    It was a pair of private investigators (I think), one was killed and came back as a ghost to help his partner.
    Any one?

    I think you're talking about the British show Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased).

    Right. Back in the '70s, it aired here in the states as My Partner, the Ghost.

    A modern version of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) recently ran on BBC-America (and occasionally pops up in the wee hours of the morning).
