I liked that one where Cher was set on fire by that mechanical lizard thing. What was it, Wheel of Fortune?

Small Wonder, of course... what could go wrong with a show about a 10 year-old robot daughter? Poor acting? Bad scripts? A ludicrous plot, even by 80's sitcom standards? Bah, I say...

Garth Margenghi's Darkplace. Best Eighties show ever. But they only made 6 episodes, GRRR...

What was that one with the half-alien girl who could stop time by putting he fingers together?

Troy Doug McClure was in it.

Out Of This World, that was it!  That was the best.

By "best", I mean "Worst"

I only know cartoons, don't think I saw many shows.

I loved Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles. The "Ninja" was too 'dangerous' for the children.

Oh, how about The Clothes Show? It was shown in the 80s and early 90s, and it showed the latest fashions every week. I used to love watching it!

Does M*A*S*H count as an 80s show?

If not, I'll agree with the guys who mentioned The A-Team and MacGuyver.

The Simpsons. Why?... I seriously can't think of any other show during the 80's which had an episode I preferred to 'Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire'...

The Simpsons. I'm reffering to the Ullman shorts, not just the only full-length episode that aired in the '80s ("Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire" ). The Wonder Years is a close second, though.

Those who said "The A-Team" wins.

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 from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire...

The A-Team!

macgyver was cool and all, but miami vice had tubbs/ crockett, aside from beavis and butthead they were the best duo of all time.

when was you can't do that on television? i remember that from when i was younger, so it must have been late 80s/early 90s... that show was so bad it was good...
hmmm.. and ninja turtles rocked. as did the live action movies.. has anyone seen the crappy excuse for a tv show that is the new ninja turtles? so so bad.
punky brewster was pretty cool too.. but we recently had reruns and they're pretty bad in retrospect. i guess you have to be young to really enjoy a lot of these shows

Technically yes, but I'm rounding 1979 to 1980.  Didn't expect that, did you Mr. Spoiler?  In your face!

Sorry to hear that NibblerJr, The A-Team rocked!

But you can still catch repeats and you can buy the best 6 episodes on DVD. (what!? The best 6 episodes, how do you come to such a silly conclusion?)

I'm reckoning that there should be a poll to find the best 80's show, anyone?
