    Just wanted to see what you guys liked watching. Apologies to any similar 80s show I left out.

    I'm torn between A-Team, Knight Rider, and Air Wolf. All three of those shows rocked!

    Where's Alf & Dukes?

    It's a tie between Miami Vice & A-Team
    With Airwolf & Knight Rider close second

    I didnt watch Magnum PI much becasue mom liked Tom Selleck. He has awesome mustache though

    I'll have to go with the A Team.
    The problem with a lot of 80s series is that after a couple of seasons they just... go wrong. For example, Airwolf was killed in my eyes when the uncontrollable superchopper could be flown by some girl they just randomly met (Caitlin).

    MacGyver should be the ONLY one up there.

    Only thing I didnt like about Airwolf Is he always hit the enemy with the first shot. Got too predictable.
    Was never really any air battles, just executions.

    Torn between A-Team and Knight Rider, but ultimately chose the latter. Because the former could get repetitive, and I love KITT.

    Yeah, I wish I could recreate the poll with Mission Impossible and Dukes of Hazzard in there.

    When I read the title of this thread, and assortment of 80's shows went through my head, but not one of them was on this list. If I were to choose one from this list though, it would easily be A-Team. I think it had the best set of personalities.

    I was more into comedies back then. Shows like Cheers and Night Court, The Cosby Show, and Perfect Strangers then later stuff like Fresh Prince and The Wonder Years.

    I tried to keep the poll narrowed to hour long 80s action/adventure shows.

    Understood. But yeah, voted for A-Team. Even as a kid I wanted to carry around a cigar and say "I love it when a plan comes together."

    Bleh.

    And Mission Impossible was a 60s/70s show with a very short lived 80s revival, so even if you could redo the poll, it wouldn't belong.

    My mom likes MacGyver. She has the first 2 seasons on DVD. I've watched some of it, but I'm not moved by the series.

    I ended up voting for A-Team. Knight Rider and Airwolf follow.
