Throw Back Thursday on Oh So Lindsay

Hi Everyone,

It's time to throw it back, back to the 80's!  Although I was only 0-7 years old, it is one of my favorite era's in terms of television and music!  What 80's sitcoms would you like to see come back?

Here are my top 10 picks:

#1 Saved By The Bell

Zack and Kelly, Slater and Jesse, Lisa and Screech, oh how I miss thee.  If anything could come back from the 80's I would want this one.  Yes I do know that there have been two spin offs from this show, Saved By The Bell: The College Years and Saved By The Bell: The New Class.  But all of these actors have grown up and made families of their own, so why not have them in a spin off series, could this be a great idea or what?  Saved By The Bell: Millennium?

#2 Family Ties

Remember the Keaton's? The iconic 80's family with many different political views.
Michael J Fox's debut on a hit television series.

#3 Cheers, NORM!!!

The is where everyone knows your name! Norm, Cliff Claven, Sam Malone, Frasier Crane, Lilith, Woody, Diane, Carla and Rebecca.  A family in their own!! This show was on for 11 years!

#4 Who's The Boss 

Alyssa Milano became an icon for teenagers around the world with this show!   Who else secretly wished Tony and Angela together every episode?!

# 5 Punky Brewster

What little girl didn't want to be like Punky?  She had a neat name and cool clothes (for the time period)

# 6 The Cosby Show

Running for Eight seasons, the Huxtable family focused on Cliff Huxtable (Bill Cosby) one of the funniest men on earth and had us laughing each and every week!!

#7 Alf

Do you remember this creature?  I had an Alf doll it talked and everything!  Running for four years Alf (Alien Life Form) crash lands on earth in the garbage can of a suburban middle-class family.  The family took him in and let him stay in their house keeping him safe from the military and nosy neighbors.  I just loved this ugly little guy!

#8 Growing Pains

Who doesn't remember Mike Seaver (Kirk Cameron) every teenagers heart-throb and then Leonardo DiCaprio joined the show and you couldn't take your eyes away!!

#9 Full House

This blended family was the best of the best! Do you remember TGIF?!  Every Friday!!!!  Uncle Jessie and Rebecca!!!!  Uncle Joey the comedian and the uptight dad Danny Tanner?  It was fun to watch the Tanner family grow before our eyes!!!
Dj Tanner (Candice Cameron sister of Kirk Above)

Last but not least # 10  Doogie Howser M.D. 

Now you know him as Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother but back then he was known as Doogie Howser M.D.   A genius who at the age of 16 was a resident surgeon!  He climbed milestones as he proved to be wise beyond his years.

And if that isn't enough it looks like some of these faves will be produced by NBCUniversal in digital form.  That's right, comic books...  They are resurrecting the most popular shows from the 80's and 90's and turning them into graphic novel form, among the list is; Saved By The Bell, Punky Bewster, Knight Rider, Airwolf, ad Miami Vice, opening up yet another avenue to allow these shows to be popular once again.  Looks like these new books will be discuss at San Diego's Comic-con on July 20th.

And here's one for the books!  Thanks MOM!

Happy Thursday Everyone!
