            "Transformers" has to be on this list


            Yeah on a different list. But this one doesn't involve cartoons.

              Cheers, Hill Street Blues, and St. Elsewhere. (I associate them all with bed time) I insisted on watching the start of Hill Street when I was little, because I wanted to see all the police cars. I had a thing for police cars I think.

                MacGyver, I saw. Yes, Knigth Rider had a super-cool theme song, but MacGyver just evoked such great excitement in me as a kid. And to this day from time to time I'll hum the theme when I improvise something particularly clever in day-to-day life.

                Yes, I know I'm sick.
                No, I don't have Mac's hair; I wouldn't stoop that low.

                Benesato.

                  Knightmare, though that's a UK thing so for the majority of people here I'm talking bullcrap.

                    I hum MacGyver's theme song right along with you.

                    Although it is late 80's, Quantum Leap's theme song is pretty good.

                      Cheers was the best song, but I loved The Greatest American Hero!

                        Airwolf's theme always reminded me of Nintendo music

                        Otherworld had some kickass theme music, but I doubt very many people even remember the show, let alone the theme.

                          among those listed, i'd say it's a draw.

                          but! let's not forget...

                          ...THE EQUALIZER...

                            Ah.... The Equalizer great show.

                            Edward Woodward (Robert McCall) was perfect for that role.

                              the episode that sticks out most for me was the one where adam ant guest starred as a sociopath pimp. i have no idea why that is.

                                I´ll give you a hint:
                                Adam Ant is playing a sociopathic pimp. That dude wasn´t right in the head to begin with, and they have him playing that!?

                                Friggin´weird thing to do.

                                    Cheers is the one for me - I just love that theme and the show
                                    Every time I visit RetroJunkit seems to change. Just glad the people dont.
