Retro-Schlock, or TV Shows I Cringe With Shame For Ever Having To Admit I Watched!

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...

OMG! I'm going to have nightmares tonight! Here's the worst.....Manimal.
You know what's bad, Haunt? I was too ashamed to own up to watching Manimal myself. That's actually pretty funny...we were two out of the dozens of people who watched that show.

I screwed up the show wasn't called time bandits. That was movie. But I can't remember for the life of me what this show was called. It had a boy and a guy in the tv show. Certain parts of time were screwed up so they had to figure out what happend and fix it before the end of the show. Damn it, I don't remember the name of the show.
That show was Voyagers! - Wikipedia, the free [email protected]@[email protected]@/wiki/File:Hexum_Peluce.jpg" class="image"><img alt="Hexum Peluce.jpg" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/ab/Hexum_Peluce.jpg/275px-Hexum_Peluce.jpg"@@[email protected]@en/thumb/a/ab/Hexum_Peluce.jpg/275px-Hexum_Peluce.jpg, DT. It was actually a pretty cute little show. Jon-Erik Hexum, who played the time-traveling lead died in a tragic accident on the set of another TV series the year after this series aired.

Indeed you did, my friend, that's why I'm thinking about doing some moderatin' a little later on and make a new thread dedicating it to the shows we all like and moving some of the posts here to over there. No harm, no foul. :D
I kind of saw this thread as a place to reveal our television viewing "guilty pleasures" since we watched these shows, but don't really want to own up to it. :p
