Subject: Forgotten Shows of the 80's

Written By: whistledog on 11/26/05 at 9:26 pm

"Inspired by the thread in the 70's section"

Anyone remember any of these:

What A Country! - A short-lived comedy series in the 1986-1987 season starring Russian Comedian Yakov Smirnoff.  I guess his recurring role on Night Court led people to believe he could handle his own show

Three's A Crowd - Short-lived Spin-off to Three's Company in which Jack and his new wife Vicki move in together, while Jack has to put up with Vicki's disapproving father

The Tortelli's - In 1987, this became a spin-off from Cheers and chronicled the life of Carla's sleazy ex-husband Nick and the sister-in-law who ends up moving into his home

Ooh I have a long list for this:-

Edison Twins 1982 - scientific crime solving twins

Just Our Luck 1983 - sitcom about a genie

Whiz Kids 1983 - kids show, based around computers

7 Brides for 7 Brothers 1982 - with MacGyver, River Phoenix and co.

Code Red 1981 - about a firefighting family

Mr Smith 1983  - the talking orangutan

Double Trouble 1984 - the Sagal twins

I'd like to say "The Voyagers", "Misfits of Science" and "Small Wonder" but I think they're quite popular still amongst tv fans.

The Edison Twins had such a nice 80's suburban feel to it. I've been collecting the videos from Ebay and it's great re-living the series. I used to watch it every Saturday morning after my swimming lessons.

I remember THROBS- it starred a young Paul Walker..during the run of the show9the production company actually let this continue tho a WISER one would have made changes)..the other star of the show 'JONATHAN PRINCE' broke his arm and did a number of shows with the cast on!!!

Very out of the ordinary for a show -there must have been an investment or payoff seeing a lead actor have to act with a cast through the run!

The other show was where Burt Young and AGAIN young Corey Haim starred, which then CRAZILY continued when Corey left it, they got ANOTHER actor to play the role that looked NOTHING LIKE Corey!!

I guess they do think we're stupid viewers..It kinda turned me off watching tv and would be like the Brady Bunch using a different cast or the Partridge family and Bewitched SWITCHING LOVED ACTORS for another...OH,...wait..they did it too!

The show had to go on but ...without me.... :(

Rags To Riches (also very short lived)


I loved Rags to Riches.  I've always been a big fan of musicals.  :D

It's sad what happened to the one girl from My sister Sam.  She seemed like a good actress who had a bright future ahead of her.  It was a good show, but what I remember most is that she had a clear refrigerator (like a Coca Cola cooler).  Why that stuck with me, I'll never know.

Does anyone remember that series Leah Remini starred in?  The only scattered things I remember were her character lived with her brother (I think) and the main hang out for the characters were in this bar downstairs from where they lived.  The main thing I remember was they lived in this apartment that had a HUGE clock face in one wall.  I liked the show, although it didn't air very long.  I don't know if it was called "Fired Up" or what.

I remember Side Kicks. It starred an Asian kid.....Ernie (last name?)  I think he had another martial arts show before this one.

I don't recall Ernie Reyes Jr. being in a show before Side Kicks, but I'm pretty sure he was in both Red Sonja and The Last Dragon before the show came out. The most recent movie I can think of with him in it is The Rundown where he beat up The Rock pretty thoroughly (he played the leader of the native rebellion).

A couple that I enjoyed:

Salvage 1 (It actually started with a tv movie in 1979 but was a series that ran two seasons.)

Max Headroom
