    parker lewis can't lose. there was a surreal nuttiness to it that i really appreciated, and it was smart-assy.
    Twin Peaks kinda scared me but I couldn't look away. I was also guilty of watching this one before I could understand it but I just loved the atmosphere. Had to sneak from my parents cause they didn't want me watching it.



    Sooo much love for Kids in the Hall!!!

    I'm squishing your head!!!!



    And just loved how they were always so into the female roles. I mean, Dave Foley legit made a pretty cute girl.


    I also adored Murphy Brown, what a funny show! And some lesser known gems:

    Chicago Hope

    (but only with Mandy Patinkin)




    Due South
    still legit adore this show!!! and holy crap, Callum Keith Rennie. I'll never get over my crush on him




    The Sentinel

    So out there, funny and kinda gay!




    The Invisible Man (2000)

    Sometimes I think I was literally the only person watching that show. It was sooo good!

    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    i loved chicago hope. and yeah, mandy patinkin forever.
    never watched the sentinel and kind of alway wondered what it was about when i was flipping channels and it was on.

    also used to love degrassi junior high - the original, not the remake. i loved how realistic it was and how the actors looked like real people, unlike american teen shows which were so glossy and unrealistic and all about football players and cheerleaders.

    I loved the NBC Thursday night lineup in the early to mid 80's. Yes, even the Cosby Show:








    I also loved Designing Women!



    Of course, I loved MASH, Golden Girls, All in the Family, Dallas, Knots Landing, Dynasty, etc.

    I floved Degrassi Junior High too! Totally realistic teens and the show was incredibly well-written!

    The Sentinel was about Jim, this policeman who suddenly develops supernatural powers and he teams up with Blair, a young scholar studying those powers. They end up living together and acting very, very gay (although supposedly the idea was that the policeman saw the student as a younger brother, of sorts) Garret Maggart, the actor who played Blair is actually Fiona Apple's half brother.

    OMG! So did we! It seems all Linda Evans did in that show was stand near the stairs looking forlorn.




    Speaking of old TV show re-runs in college: we also watched "The Monkees" on MTV and Nick at Nite. I also had watched this show as a small child. This show is hilarious no matter how old you are!
