All of the series I have been speaking about so far are ones that have entered the public consciousness and atone time during their run they were Top Ten shows.
For instance, if you enjoyed the show KNIGHT RIDER from 1982 to 1986 when it was on, you don't need me to tell you that the show was about a lone crimefighter who battles the forces of evil with the help of an indestructible and artificially intelligent supercar.
Those shows are all from the 1980s, but LAS VEGAS is the show that is currently on TV.

The increasing problem was that the BBC screened Neighbours in the early afternoons, causing havoc with school attendances as teenagers flocked to TV sets to keep up with the series.

"It is encouraging that "Rentaghost" is still a favourite with so many and, when we made the series, the enjoyment of Bob Block's scripts made us all quite unaware of the show's enduring popularity."

With his manager John Cornell as director, Hogan took a big chunk of his TV earnings and produced an amiable culture-clash comedy, Crocodile Dundee (Hogan and Cornell owned 65 percent of the picture, the rest going to the circle of friends who'd invested in the project).

 "Stargate SG-1" (1997)
The simple fact that it doesn't play like the film over and over again (Something which has plagued many film-cum-TV-shows of late) shows how original it really is and though yes, I admit, the first series was very 'Star Trek' in its recycling of the same story types it always remained somehow different.
A magnificent program which shows just how imaginative and professional TV can be when the director, cast, crew and screenwriters all work to the best of their considerable ability.
This is an in-joke, since for most of its run, "ALF" (1986) was in the same time slot as "MacGyver" (1985), which starred Richard Dean Anderson in the title role.
