I know this is just incredibly pedantic - but I always think of the '90s (and other decades) as:

1990 - 1993 = early nineties
1994 - 1996 = mid nineties
1997 - 1999 = late nineties

I know, I know, but I can't help it. I'm anally retentive when it comes to stuff like this! It's not of any great importance really, lol.

Back to TV...

Mr Belvedere
Hangin' With Mr Cooper
The Munsters
The bloody Addams Family

Oh and yes - of course, ALF! I remember watching an episode where ALF 'sang' a godawful version of the Macca+Stevie Wonder song, Ebony and Ivory. Dear oh dear.

There was another one... I remembered the name before but it has completely slipped my mind now. The main character was Evie, a teenager who was half alien, half human... the theme tune was that 'would you like to swing on a star' song....

Don't forget Cheers either. Some of the best shows were the battles with the other bar , Gary's or something?

I remember telling my family that ALF would be a hit show and they laughed at me. It was on for 4 years despite its ridiculous premise. And Mrs. Ochmanek went on to play Jerry's mom on Seinfeld. I also read she was once engaged to James Dean.

Cagney and Lacey.

I remember, by the time I left the States back in 1992, I'd given up watching Full House. Candace Cameron was going through an unbelievably ugly phase at that point.

Cagney and Lacey ain't a sitcom, well, it was bad that I thought it was funny but I don't it was meant to be.

Happy Days had "jumped the shark" by the 80's.

I know that! I stretched the definition to include dramas, and older programs, earlier on in the thread - hence my previous listing of LA Law, Hill St Blues, etc etc.

That's a minor detail. Happy Days is Happy Days, which is stating the obvious.

Midnight Caller. The Equaliser.

Jeez, I watch too much tv.

My apologies, mi lady.

In that case, anyone remember a crappy show called Nightingales with a young Kristy Swanson, I do,
