    BTW, this was the best show of the early 80s'

    It was only 3 seasons yet this show pops up in pop culture quite a bit.

    A short-lived reality series about 10 years ago called Outback Jack.

    It was kind of cross between Survivor, and The Bachelor. A bunch of city girls were dropped off in the Australian outback where they had to rough it and go through elimination competitions to see who would win the hand of super stud, Outback Jack.

    Not sure how I got started watching it, I've never been a fan of reality TV, but I watched the whole thing.

    Robert Culp made that show. Plus, you have to love a superhero show where they lost the instruction manual for the super suit. Remember the one where they were trying to make pyrokinesis work and Culps Charger got torched?:rofl: Eric

    I think this thread derailed slightly as many of the shows listed are not bad shows at all.

    To get back on track, my guilty pleasure is "The A-Team".

    When Moonlighting was a hit, I attended a seminar hosted by the cleb photographer Gary Bernstein in Pittsburgh. He had some interesting stories about people like Farah Faucett, Larry Hagman, and one about Cybil Sheppard.

    During the stills for the TV guide ads, (Cybil reclining on the cresent moon), several big wigs made it a point to stop by the set to get an eyefull of Cybil and she was in her dressing room. Suddenly, she opened her door and shouted that anyone not associated with the shoot to "GET THE ---------------OUT!!" And, due to her star power at that time, there was a mass rush to the doors! Sponsors, ad men, minor excutives hit the door like windblown leaves!

    He said that Linda Evans was a consumate professional, wonderfull, lovely person to work with. Tony Danza was great too. When someone asked about Larry Hagman (Dallas was the #1 hit then), he said..."Larry Hagman IS J.R." and then he clammed up.

    One of my favorites was UFO. It was on for a couple of seasons and never went into syndication. Not only did the aliens scare the living bejeezus out of me, but the creepy music at the end would have me looking over my shoulder and turning on more lights.

    Yeah me too, I watched because of Stacks and her sister (Judy and Audrey Landers). :supergrin:

    Seems like the mid to late 70s had a lot of trucker themed tv shows.

    I love the Red Green Show. How could anyone be embarrassed by it?
    Steve Smyth comes up to Fairbanks every year to host the Chena River Ductape Boat Regatta which coincides with PBS's fund raising drive.

    Project blue book.

    I tried to watch American Hero recently and couldn't get through the episode. Ralph is the quintessential bleeding heart liberal that brought about the downfall of California.

    I watched 2 full seasons of Lost Girl. I wouldn't say I enjoyed it, but it did have Anna Silk as a succubus who has to have sex in every episode. It was one of those Netflix shows I watch while I eat lunch - jsut a time killer.

    I watched and actually liked "Life on Mars?" with Harvey Keitel. Generally worth watching.
