    2. Family Matters (WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THE SHOW AFTER THIS ONE? 2 guys in an apartment???)
    3. Boy meets world
    4. Dr. Quinn Medicine woman (OK I hated this show but my babysitter at the time LOVED it so I was stuck with it)
    5. Darkwing duck
    6. Tailspin
    7. Pirates of Dark Water (!)(!)


    yours?

    Some of these are on the list because I grew up with them, not because of their quality (others are just great shows):

    Knight Rider
    MacGyver
    The Muppet Show
    Alf
    Star Trek: TNG
    The Prisoner

    Can't go past

    Sliders (except series 5)
    SeaQuest DSV
    Space Above & Beyond / Firefly (both only ran 1 half series)
    Battlestar Galactica (both original and new)
    Stargate SG1

    Ok so I'm a Si-Fi Fan but it's all good stuff

    "Perfect Strangers" - Larry and his foreign cousin Belki. "Family Matters" was actually a spin-off of this show. Harriett Winslow was the elevator operator at the place where cousin Larry worked.

    Yes, a thousand times... I watch the re-runs as often as I can. I love that show.

    That's probably the old show I miss the most, in addition to the following cartoons:

    Thundercats
    GI Joe
    HeMan (old, not new crap)
    Inspector Gadget

    Ahh....the adventures of Balki Bartokamos (I think that was his last name) and Cousin Larry App-le-ton. This is the one show that I think needs to be on DVD and isn't (even though I failed to list it in the other thread).

    And now, we do the Dance of Joy!

    As for my other shows that I loved....I grew up with the original TGIF and matured into Must-See Thursdays. I loved the Disney Afternoon. I would always be upset when they added a new show, killing off the oldest (I remember when Gummi Bears was dropped and fearing the eventual demise of Duck Tales).

    I have noticed that some shows are worse as you get older - like a lot of Muppet Show episodes (I saw reruns) - and some get even better - like Transformers. But, some of the MS episodes are among the best TV ever...

    I didn't grow up with it, and never saw it on TV, but I still think Firefly makes this list. I think that (along with most of the cartoons form the 80s that everyone else has listed) make up my list...

    EWWWWW Rosanne is the most disgusting show ever. It shows such low class people and the beginning of it is just gross when all the fat people eat chinese food (rosanne, john goodman, etc). Then they have the slutty daughter that is now on ER. Some of the topics/jokes seem a little inappropriate too.

    You're right, and I'm not white trash, but to watch for the one liners is pretty good. I'm not an avid watcher but when I caught it on, it was funny.:eek: ;)

    That's why it was so popular, I wasn't a big fan though. TGIF! Let's see Family Matters, Perfect Strangers (I have vague rememberance of this show, I was young), Step by Step, Boy Meets World, umm that's all I remember but TGIF was the shizzle. Perfect way to end the week.

    I too grew up on TGIF - Full House was one of the shows in the original TGIF lineup, along with Family Matters and perfect Strangers - I watched them all religiously.

    Thomas, you just might be one of the few posters who remembers Amos 'n Andy or even knows what I'm talking about. ;)
