Miami Vice, followed by Crime Story, two of the best, most innovative and influential series.

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'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.

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! :)

So far- Night Court.  I'll post again when my #1 choice Dynasty is complete!


Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

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

Family Ties

The Golden Girls

Knight Rider

Simon & Simon

The Wonder Years (complete series coming very soon! :thumbs-up-smiley:)

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?!

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.

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!!

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)

 

Mission:Impossible (1988-90)

 

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.

I know.  I was referring to the time period from the start of the 1st season to the start of last season.
