    I still really like Cheers although not so keen on the early ones with Coach instead of Woody.
    Watched an episode of Magnum and Miami Vice recently and they are still entertaining.
    I also tried to rewatch the The Invaders but I only stuck with it for 4-5 episodes. 60's sci-fi doesn't hold up so well.

    I liked The Equalizer when I was a kid but it was never a favourite.
    I watched the first episode last night and it still suffers from the same problem... having a short, well-spoken, grey haired man in his mid-fifties, with a bit of a belly to boot, just isn't believable as an action hero.
    Especially during the foot chases and fight scenes when he's been obviously replaced by a stuntman.
    I never liked Hannibal in the A-Team for the same reason.

    I might give The Fall Guy a try tonight.

    Frasier is one of my favourite shows on TV. I still love it.

    Old school comedies to watch include Porridge, Fawlty Towers, Only Fools, Blackadder, Phoenix Nights etc. But Alan Partridge is still my goto box set. The second series in the travel tavern is pure gold.

    I love 1980 British comedy/dramas like Auf Wiedersehen Pet, Minder etc also.

    I read this thread from the start just now and was thinking Partridge straight away. Was watching it on Netflix the other day, what a show!

    A few of you will remember what programme this was the theme tune to. Great song.
