Everybody in this post loves The A-Team? Anyone saw the 2010 flick?
Liam Neeson's appearance on Miami Vice in 1986 made him into one of the biggest sex symbols in Ireland. Really erotic when he locked lips with Saundra Santiago, him wearing a towel in a short scene, and him wearing a buttoned down sleeveless shirt.I bet all his fangirls were breathing heavy and drooling when that episode aired.
I musta missed that one.....fortunately.
I'll get ribbed for this answer, but if it must be a show that has been released in it's entirety I have to say The Cosby Show. Very underrated as a great family sitcom.
Gary "don't make fun of me too much for that answer" O.
No, I honestly try to steer away from movie remakes. I did watch The Beverly Hillbillies but that was a different story.....
My only problem with The Cosby Show was that, like many sitcoms of those years, it got preachy and issue driven after 4 seasons or so. But those first 4 years are comedy gold!
Designing Women, Mama's Family, The Golden Girls and Gimme a Break.
So far- Night Court. I'll post again when my #1 choice Dynasty is complete!
What's wrong with The Cosby Show, it was a great sitcom and the ratings indicate as much (#1 for 5 straight years!). I agree with BobO' Link though, the first few seasons are the best, I didn't really care for the later seasons (especially when Pam was brought in).
Getting back to the topic of this thread, My favs are:
The Cosby Show
The Golden Girls
Simon & Simon
The Wonder Years (complete series coming very soon! )
I really liked Night Heat, did not know it was available on DVD.
Whoops, my mistake, I forgot that you were only supposed to list your favourite shows that have been completely released on DVD. Unfortunately, Night Heat has not been released on DVD and I don't think it ever will be?! This is a bit of a cult hit, it has a loyal fanbase including probably some US fans as it aired on CBS (it was the first Canadian series to air in the USA). The rights were owned by Alliance Films who was bought by eOne Films last year. Alliance released many different shows on DVD a few years ago but for whatever reason they never released any seasons of Night Heat. Now with eOne owning the rights, its anyone's guess if they will do anything with these series or just leave them in the vault to collect dust?!
The Cosby Show
Gimme A Break!
The Golden Girls
Saved By The Bell
Miami Vice & Remington Steele. Haven't bought Vice yet because I'd read the image could be better. Soooooo wish that was on blu-ray!!
I have all the Miami Vice seasons, and they look just fine.
Good thing you didn't buy Miami Vice because Universal will be re-releasing all 5 seasons on May 6 with single sided discs.
If I had to pick only one, it would be a miniseries, Shogun (1980).
For a series, that's also hard to choose, but I guess mine would be Matlock (1986-94) although that series carried over into the 90's.
Others that are very close together with Matlock are
Winds of War (1983) / War and Remembrance (1988) - both miniseries
A Team (1983-87). I know but it's a fun show, one that I'd never seen before the DVD releases.
Highway to Heaven (1984-88). I just began watching this show on the Mill Creek DVD's but I'm almost certain that it will rank high in my 80's list once I get further into the series. (complete release available in R2)
Hill Street Blues (1981-87). Thanks to Shout, it's on the way.
A surprise "like" for me is Knight Rider (1982-85). Another one not seen before the DVD release.
Masada miniseries (1981)
North and South miniseries (1985)
Police Squad (1982). May be along with "Firefly" and "Star Trek" (TOS), the worst case of studio execs pulling the plug too fast on a series.
Matlock ended in 1995.
I know. I was referring to the time period from the start of the 1st season to the start of last season.
