The Greatest American Hero (1981) - Believe it or not I'm walking on air...in an incredibly gay superhero suit given to me by aliens.

Fame (1982) - I see your graduated from a performance arts college...you can take cab number 12.

Whiz Kids (1983) - Here's a show about kids just like you who are also into computers and will never get laid.

The A-Team (1983) - Hey fool, we can't hit shit we shoot at.

The Master (1984) - Proof that even a show about ninjas starring Lee Van Cleef can be totally gay if you just add a Van Patten.

Punky Brewster (1984) - Yes she grew up to have a fabulous pair of breasts but we still all wanted to kill her as a child.

It's almost enough to make you yearn for a Arron Spelling program from the 70s.

Almost.

Thank God for Miami Vice.

Just forgot about CHIPS. The show where cars roll, flip, blow up and the people only get "scrapes and bruises"

Anyone remember Stingray?

There was another show back then called "Private Eye," I think. It was kinda like a 1950's version of Miami Vice.

I watched Punky Brewster religiously. I remember that show from when I was 3 and 4 years old. I even tried to dress like her.



How about....

I also vouch for "Silver Spoons" and "Small Wonder"

I vaguely recall a show with a cartoonist who had a wife, two daughters, and there was some gay dude hanging around...can't remember the title....
Link Posted: 1/18/2006 2:26:31 PM EDT
Well, this one wasn't lame, it was GREAT...I loved it...wish they would bring it out on DVD...

ready,

Actually we are both right. CHiPs first aired in '77 and the last episode was in '83

The fall guy was cool

Thank goodness for TV land. I would rather watch the lame 80's TV shows then 90% of the new shows on now.

Supertrain (or was that 1970's?)

Wizzards & Warriors...only 8 episodes.

I've never seen it, but there seems to be a whole internet cult ring about it.

Oh, you asked 'best' lame shows. Sorry.

Okay, so it premiered in 1987... I lost track of the time!

In the 80's I was 3 years old. I don't know what the hell I was watching. I thought Little House on the Prairie was cool.

Anyone remember AIRWOLF!



Why is it I can still remember the theme song to that fosaken show and can't remember where I put my keys most mornings?

Of course my usual fare was still watching Transformer and GI Joe...

That was possibly the worst show ever.

Anyone remember the show called "Sable"? It didnt run very long, but the main character had the uber-ninja camo thing going on all the time
Link Posted: 1/18/2006 4:14:58 PM EDT
Wow I had totally forgotten about Riptide. I remember thinking the show was lame, but they had the cool double decker helicopter.

CHiPs makes the list because it was a cool show in the 70's but then became lame in the 80's with Bruce Jenner and the recruits.

"Cop Rock" was probably worse, but that didn't fall in the specified time frame.

And what about Fantasy Island? (the 'Survivor' of its day, sort of)

If I recall correctly, there was a "Celebrity ARFCOM member" discussion thread a month or so back, and a member here claimed to be the lead actor in that show. It's the internet, so who knows, but his post seemed on the up and up.
