Magnum P.I.
Brady Bunch
didn't watch either
didn't watch either
Solid Gold
Love Boat
Diff'rent Strokes
Silver Spoons
Buck Rogers
Bionic Woman
Happy Days
Mork & Mindy
Welcome Back Kotter
Moonlighting
Charlie's Angels (when I could sneak a peek--this show was banned in the Corry household)

I loved the Dukes of Hazzard, and Wonder Woman, and we often watched the Incredible Hulk (which is why the movie was such a tragic dissappointment to me). But of course my favorite TV show of all time was and continues to be "The Cosby Show"

I was mostly too young to remember a lot of these shows, but I'll post the shows I watched (or remember!)

Magnum PI
Brady Bunch
Facts of Life
Silver Spoons AND Punky
Alf

I guess my list is pretty short. I was really young in the early 80s.

I second Charlotta - The Cosby Show was a favorite, I was also into Family Ties, Growing Pains, The Wonder years...

OK This is from your oldy moldy mission companion - my answers are intended to make you laugh.

1. Magnum P.I. (for Tom Selleck)
2. Partridge Family (for David Cassidy)
5. Solid Gold or Dance Fever - a toss up, just thinking could I dance like that and COOL music??
6. Love Boat (for all the male cast dressed up in the mighty fine sailing uniforms)
7. Diff'rent Strokes - "what'chyu talkin' 'bout Willis?"
9. Battlestar Gallactica or Buck Rogers - NEITHER! I still refuse to get into that scene.
10. Bionic Woman or 6 Million - Dollar Man, believe it or not Bionic Woman but if 6 Million was on a night other than Sunday (banned in my home) I would have watched that for the obvious - Lee Majors.
11. Happy Days - HAAYYYY, leather and motocycles need I say more.
12. Mork and Mindy - Mork was outta this world.
13. Welcome Back Kotter - OH OH OH OH OH OH OH Mr, Kotta
14. Moonlighting or Remington Steele BOTH OF COURSE - Bruce Willis and Pierce Brosnan, who could miss it!
15. Charlie's Angels but only for the voice of Charlie. :)

Only two shows per week were allowed at my house so we watched A-team and Dukes of Hazzard. I would often watch Brady Bunch, Little House on the Prarie, and Different Strokes at my friends house. If I was tending and the Love Boat was on, forget about the kids 'til the show was over!

I kept trying to remember the name of the show with the two brothers who were cute but opposites and lived on a house boat - of course... Simon and Simon! I liked that one too! Does anyone remember Trapper John M.D.? I thought Gonzo was cute! :)
