Married with Children

Good call. I forgot about this. I watched this religiously back in the late 80s. Was on Thursday nights, after the News At Ten, on ITV. Thats when id stay up to Watch Tour Of Duty later on in the same night. Think that started after midnight

Tour of Duty and America's Top 10 with Casey Kasem.  Married with Children would never get made today.

Yeah....you nailed my late 80s Thursday night viewing habits there.

And sadly, your right about Married With Children. Would it even be allowed to be shown these days?

Casey used to say "keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars."  Then Siedah Garrett took over as presenter as she used to say "love don't make the world go around, but it sure makes the ride worthwhile."

I love to see Darkplace on your list, Smee!

I'm not a huge TV guy, but I like Seinfeld most of all '90s sitcoms. Friends doesn't do it for me.

The King of Queens and Yes, Dear were staples of my childhood. Whose Line is great, too.

I stopped watching after Sheen left the show, it wasn't the same. 

The show was great because it showed us what happened to Duckie. 

As a matter of fact, there used to be a member of this forum called Charlie Harper.
