Punky Brewster is an 80s Sitcom Icon

1. Punky Brewster is an 80s Sitcom Icon

As a child in the 1980s, I loved Punky Brewster. This sitcom first ran from 1984 to 1986 and then ran in re- syndication from 1987 to 1988. The star of the sitcom is Penelope ‘Punky’ Brewster (Soleil Moon Frye). When the audience was first introd…

Soap-Classic 70's and 80's TV

2. Soap-Classic 70′s and 80′s TV

Soap was a very funny comedy which debuted on ABC in 1977 and ran for 4 seasons. Written as a parody to the daytime soap opera, Soap was a quirky type of a show with 2 related somewhat dysfunctional families, the Tates and the Campbell’s. The families…

Soap TV Show - The BEST Sitcom Of 1977.

3. Soap TV Show – The BEST Sitcom Of 1977.

I was never the typical teenage girl, all frilly and pink and all that. Nope, I had a lot of friends but hated talking on the phone. I still do. I shunned the water cooler soap operas like Days of Our Lives or the wildly popular Guiding Light. I just hated…

Happy Days - Such A Simpler Time

4. Happy Days – Such A Simpler Time

Happy Days was and still is one of my most favorite TV sitcoms to watch. I have always felt that I was born about ten years too late and I would have loved to have grown up in the 50s. Growing up in the 70s will have to be another lens. I imagine that almo…

About The Dukes of Hazzard Show

5. About The Dukes of Hazzard Show

Once upon the early 80′s I thought country music, cowboy hats & boots were just the coolest things ever on the planet! When I think back to that time when the Dukes of Hazzard was on TV, I was also watching Barbara Mandrell’s popular vari…

Golden Girls | Season One

6. Golden Girls | Season One

When The Golden Girls first aired in 1985, I was in my thirties. The plight of Blanche, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia was entertaining. The stories were engaging and the interaction between the characters was wonderful. The lines are classic. My best buddy Per…

How perfect were these strangers

Hill Street Blues was a Ground Breaking  Cop series

8. Hill Street Blues was a Ground Breaking Cop series

This first series of Hill Street Blues – seventeen episodes – was, in my opinion, the building block upon which later, grittier and more realistic police dramas have been built. Shows such Law & Orderand, and even Chicago Hope and the UKCasualty, a…

Classic 80s TV - The A-Team

9. Classic 80s TV – The A-Team

One of the highlights of my childhood was sitting down in front of the TV on a Saturday afternoon and tuning in to The A- Team. There was nothing better than watching Hannibal, Murdoch, Face and B. A. as they helped the oppressed while simultaneously on th…

M*A*S*H:  The Legend Begins

10. M*A*S*H: The Legend Begins

M* A* S* H is one of the most legendary television series in the history of TV. It was based on the landmark 1970 dark comedy film of the same name, which was based on a novel by Richard Hooker (real name: Richard Hornberger), who was a surgeon at a MASH u…

Favorite TV Show Ever

11. Favorite TV Show Ever

Laverne and Shirley is my favorite TV show of all time. I watched this show as a young child every Tuesday night. It came on right after Happy Days and right before Three’s Company. Season 1 is an introduction to Laverne and Shirley and their goofy ne…

Review: Growing Pains- sitcom tv

12. Review: Growing Pains- sitcom tv

The last year this show aired new episodes may have been the year I was born, but I still grew up watching re- runs of this amazing show. Even now, thinking back on it, memories flood my mind. Kirk Cameron (played Mike) was one of my first crushes. Needles…
