Yes, that's why it was called Music Television.

Thank goodness for YouTube. I can watch all the old videos I liked.

Miami Vice



A tribute to cartoons of the 80's. Fraggle Rock techinically isn't a cartoon, but it's a kids show.

The Cosby Show, MacGyver, Knight Rider, Moonlight. I was a kid that time but I don't think it was radical, it was a lot of fun decade.

Macgyer? I thought that was a show the Simpsons made up heehee!!

Great 80's shows? The Young Ones, Cheers, A-Team, Knight Rider. And yes, I too remember when MTV was a music station.

Ooh, I loved MacGyver! He could make just about anything with a paperclip and chewing gum - and definitely easy on the eyes.

I believe Columbo was more 70's, but probably did have ha few 80's shows. The 70's were very big on cop/detective shows.

Not as much as my mom, but yeah, Columbo was cool. He was clutzy, but always managed to figure out "whodunit".
