In the word of Triple H: "whoa, whoa, whoaaaaa". You've lost Cool Points with me :P
A-Team was a blast. Sure, it got comical with their recurring stunts and situations, but it was great for its time. In that regard, it probably hasn't aged well and wouldn't hold up to "new" viewers. You have to have been a fan in the 80's for it to have any kind of enjoyment. Love the intro: "in 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped...." I recite the full intro whenever anybody asks me about it.
I am not exaggerating when I say "Hill Street Blues
may be the best TV show of all-time". It set the tone for all the subsequent "police procedural drama" shows (Law & Order, NYPD Blue, Blue Bloods, CSI, Homicide, etc.). Yet it's still unique in that it had a lot of good (and believable) humor. Excellent ensemble cast, as well. Would watch it, every Thursday night, with my folks from 1983 to 1985 or so. It's on Hulu and, IMO, still holds up well and can be accessible to "newbs". I'd strongly recommend it to anybody. Because of HSB, I usually end my conference calls with "hey, let's be careful out there".
I was going to mention "Kelly Bundy" in my original rebuttal about "Married with Children". I've simply never found Christina Applegate attractive. I was more of an Alyssa Milano guy, back then.
Yeah, Night Court was
pretty good. Marsha Warfield and John Laroquette were great.
This isn't really related, but I've been watching "Hogan's Heroes
" on Antenna TV, recently. I used to think that show was awesome, but it's not all that amazing. It's all Bob Crane fast-talking Colonel Klink. Still, it will always have one of the LEAST likely settings for a sitcom: a Nazi prison camp.
New one I never watched: "Family Matters
". Steve Urkel became famous and was name-dropped in pop culture, a lot. I knew who he was from the commercials, but I never saw one episode of the show.
