It has become a ritual of mine to watch my favorite sit-com of all-time, Frasier almost religiously when it comes on. Unfortunately, it plays on Lifetime right now and as anyone knows, this channel has original movies. It was an advert for one such Academy Award winner, that I saw Greg Evigan running hell-bent for leather after a car that was speeding away. Evigan, as you may or may not remember was the titular character for the 70's TV show BJ and The Bear, a program about a trucker with a chimp. If that fails to grab you the prospect about a man and his monkey, then I guess that nothing will. For me, I am totally mortified that this show was recalled to mind. Now, I am forced to create a thread to ask some of you what are shows you once revered now revile and are embarrased to admit you even gave it a second of your time? I'll post some more later, right now, I feel a strong sense of needing to go take a nice, long steaming shower to wash away the taint that has been left on me. Yet another sad case of a man being left alone with his monkey...

Someone has to stick up for them... I'm sorry but the Duke Boys are still good in my book. I mean what other TV show gives you two guys who are out to fight the law in their amazinly done '69 Dodge Charger Showing impossiable to corrupt morals!

And how quikly you forget what the Dukes have done for us. I mean the Daisy Duke shorts... Not to mention the many places the General Lee has popped up. For Example...


C'mon, don't let some crappy movie ruin in your eyes what was once a wonderfuly awsome show.

Nothing wrong with Dark Shadows, Night Gallery, What's Happenin', Bosom Buddies (That's how you spell it DT) WKRP in Cinncinati, Married...With Children and I'm sorta iffy on Wonder Woman. Something about Lynda Carter in that suit...

Anyhow, I think you guys did a pretty fine job of nailing the rest. :devil:

Some others:

MadTV (completely unfunny)
Adam 12
The Adventures of Superman
I Love Lucy (Hell, ANY show with Lucille Ball)
Airwolf
Riptide
SWAT

Airwolf ruled, until Jan Michael Vincent got fired.

Street Hawk was a classic. And The Highway man.
Let's see, with Knight Rider and Dukes of Hazard thrown in there, we got the Super Vehicles of the 80's. Helicopter, Motorcycle, Truck and Cars. If only there was something other than Hulk Hogan's Thunder in Paradise to get a super-boat from.:p

You guys didn't see this one, because it was done in Chicago. But they had their own Elvria host. It was Son of Svengoolie in the 80's. It is now in Chicago again but only called Svengoolie. I was planning on buying another T-shirt from him again. He is on the right getting hit by a light ray by a giant rubber chicken. At the end of the show, he goes back into his coffin and everyone hits him with rubber chickens. And then they play the song, "You maybe right, I maybe cray..Oh, but it must be a Lunatic your are looking for."
