Sigh… I can remember the TV shows I was crazy about as a kid, but I can’t remember what that last university lecture I had was all about.
Okay, remember those shows like Knight Rider? A-Team? Airwolf? Oh, yeah, now there were some fine shows!
Of course, if I ever catch an old episode of Knight Rider now, it seems so… cheesy! I guess cheesy was cool in the eighties.
Most of my young memories of TV are of Knight Rider. Especially vibrant is the memory of how my parents would never let me stay up for the second half of this special 2-hour episode of Knight Rider. You know, the one where KITT is up against this huge truck (sounds so stupid now, doesn’t it?).
All I remember about Airwolf is that it was Knight Rider With a Helicopter (an idea that actually seemed cool to the elementary school kid I was). A-Team had Mr. T in it, and that’s about all I can recall. Mind you, I can clearly recall the theme music for each of these three shows.
Come one, come all… Share your 80’s TV nostalgia!
