Jimster How can you list Star cops and tripods but not mention Red dwarf and the big one that NOONE REMEMBERED The hitch-hikers guide to the galaxy.
I would also think the BBC's invisible man and first born were worth a mention.

I didn't mention Red Dwarf because I thought someone else would. Although to be fair, Red Dwarf is much more a '90s phenomenon than an '80s one.

Can you remember being there? If you can you obviously haven't drunk enough and destroyed enough brain cells yet. It's all supposed to to be an 80's shaped blur that you can only remember dimly and all the shows on dvd don't look anywhere near as good as you remember them.

Apart from Dangermouse. Which is ageless.
Oh, and Button Moon. Which i was ALWAYS too old for. And no I don't care, it was still good.

And Fraggle Rock.

The Trash Heap has Spoken! Ner!
