Your favourite retro TV shows

2012-04-24 09:11
After finding out that MacGyver was pulling in the audiences and helping maintain SABC3's  viewer ratings, we compiled a list of the best retroTV shows that we would like to see on our TV screens again.

This time around we decided to let you do the same by compiling your own list of your old-time favourites which you would like to see make a comeback.

The response was amazing and some big names were mentioned. A few interesting, lesser known classics made it into your lists as well.

"How about The A-Team, Rip Tide or Silver Spoons, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers… I have a LONG list, but as a child, those were my faves," said Bronwyn Smith.

Brett Bakos simply said: "THE A-TEAM !!!!!!!!!!!!"

Others also mentioned the A-Team and it looks like that is still a huge favourite.

"I for one would LOVE to see Miami Vice back on TV," added Rob Picolo.

'Was awesome'

As stated earlier some few unknowns were also on your lists.

"Who's the Boss was awesome!!" said Lynette Amaro in reference to the sitcom that aired between 1984 and 1992.

Numerous early 80s classics were mentioned including American television series Magnum P I which starred Tom Selleck who also acted on Friends as Dr Richard Burke.

"Bring back Magnum P.I.  - Looooved that one & Murder She Wrote - good wholesome mystery," said Christine Lane.

Darryl Naidoo's list included The Little Hobo, 7 Brides to 7 Brothers, the still popular Knight Rider and Growing Pains.

Another reader, Ricardo, had a different list and it included the sitcoms Perfect Strangers, Married with Children and the comedy Webster  about a little black boy adopted by a white couple.
