The Red Green thread gave me the idea to post this question. Of all the tv shows from the past which ones were your favorites?

I will start off with mine:

A-team
Knight Rider
Mr. Ed
Hardcastle and McCormmick
Blue Thunder <--- this was short lived
Nighthawk <-- I think that is the right name for the helicopter one
Different Strokes

Lost In Space... How could I forget that one?!! I remember being scared to death watching that show. I saw an episode, last fall, on a local rerun station. It's hillarious to see it now with that crazy robot going around saying "DANGER! DANGER!"

and Hee Haw... What a riot! Remember Junior Samples? And don't forget all them purdy gals!!!

Anyone also recall "It's About Time, It's About Space"? Only ran a year, but as a kid I loved it. Almost all the old shows were great. Even the worst of yesteryear's shows are better than 90% of the crap on TV today.:mecry:

You listed some good ones, massey driver... I forgot about Red too. That was a great show.

That just made me remember another one... The Carol Burnett Show.

... and another one... anybody remember Buck Rogers?... 1960's

That was pretty good! I still don't remember it though. It sort of sort of reminded me of Gilligan's Island in the stone age. Was that always the theme, or did they land in different places for each show?

Cannon was another one I'd forgotten... used to watch it all the time. Remember his car phone? Sure not like today's communication.
