Inspired by your thread, Veronica. What other shows do people consider to be 'classic TV'?
My classics would be:
Blackadder M*A*S*H* Frasier Fawlty Towers Porridge Night Court
Seachange (brilliant Aussie series with some serious chemistry between the leads IMHO) Law and Order (esp. eps. with Jerry Orbach) Inspector Morse Minder (with Denis Waterman) Eurovision Song Contest (with Terry Wogan commentating!)
Thinking back to the 80's my friends & I were all really into Miami Vice. Not only were the 2 main actors very sexy ( I prefered Don Johnson) but you had a great location & some good music in the show aswell.
I also enjoyed Cheers & the banter between Sam & Rebecca although it wasn't a patch on the chemistry between David & Maddie.
Also on the same theme I liked Who's the Boss as I fancied Tony Danza & wanted his character Tony to get together with Angela.
I remember Dempsey and Makepeace - thought it was heavily influenced by ML but was well done anyway. Didn't the couple (Glenys Barber or something like that and Michael whose last name escapes me) get married in real life?
Just checked on IMDb and D & M was made at the same time as ML so I guess they influenced each other! The actors Michael Brandon and Glynnis Barber did marry in real life so a happy ending for one detective couple at least!!!
The best classic tv for me is: Get Smart! Loved Max and 99! Followed by I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners They were all tv shows before i was born but i grew up watching them and never get bored of watching them now just like ML
The Wonder Years Frasier Friends Magnum PI Designing Women Lois and Clark, The New Adventures of Superman Simon and Simon Andy Griffith (okay,not really a favorite but I grew up watching reruns of this show)
