Quantum Leap, Mork And Mindy and most definitely my video of "family favourites" The Family Ness, Bertha, Pigeon Street, and Bagpuss.
Also Postman Pat, Garfield and Friends, Thunderbirds, Sesame Street, The Crystal Maze, Star Trek, Transformers, and as many Steve Martin films as you could shake a stick at.

I used to love Crystal Maze and Star trek, they were amazing, especially crystal maze...

Crystal Maze, Moomins, Bagpuss, Around the Bend, Grange Hill, Ulysses 31, Pirates of Dark Water, Quantum Leap, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet (oh man he ruled. Like a very lame terminator biggrin.gif), Star Trek, X-Men, Transformers, The Man from U.N.C.L.E, The Avengers, Ren and Stimpy, Spitting Image, and Red Dwarf are the ones that spring to mind. smile.gif

I need to get Captain Scarlet on DVD somewhere. Is it just me or did he fail about half the time? I remember one episode where he had to stop a nuclear power plant from blowing up. He couldn't, so got vaporised. Then came back. It must really suck, because his powers didn't stop the pain. He'd die the most painful deaths, then his bosses would throw him back out to die again. Poor bugger!

They smash him. But they know he'll return,
To live again."

CAPTAIN SCARLET, INDESTRUCTABLE.

Also, I now have "Have you ever, ever felt like this? When strange things are happening, and you're going round the twist?" song in my head.

Also, Noel's House Party and other such delights of mid-nineties weekend programming.

It was all about Knightmare - the program I'd actually run home for, making it one of the very few things to make me adjust my speed to above a saunter.

Sidestep left... left... pick up the apple... PUT IT IN YOUR KNAPSACK! KNAPSACK! FASTER! FASTER!

Ed auditioned to be on that but unfortunately they were picked as understudies and the main team were OK to go on. Booo sad.gif

I saw a Transformer's poster in my local cinema the other day and thought that was a blast from the past.

Also, does anyone remember The Children of Green Knowe?!? unsure.gif

Zorro was another of my childhood favourites and Black Beauty smile.gif Scooby Doo (without the annoying Scrappy), Grange Hill (back when it was based in Laarrnddon where it should be!), Blue Peter, The Clangers, Ulysses, Jason and the Argonauts, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, She-Ra, Moomins.

What was that programme called Moon something and it had a spooky lighthouse keeper ghost in it?!? unsure.gif

Wait wait wait- are you telling me that Grange Hill is now not based in Grange Hill- as in the Grange Hill on the Central line, in London? W T F ?

Bets thing about Grange Hill was the original intro (and the music for it). It wasn't the same after they got rid of that comic-style opener. The series was the poorer for the loss of 'the presentation of the sausage'.

And i echo the disbelief that it has been shifted away from Laaaaaaaaahhndaaaaaahhhnn. Wasn't it originally pitched as EastEnders for kids? There were some crossovers, weren't there?

Sigh...this is going to be one of those British Only threads, isn't it? The minute I mention Power Rangers you'll all throw bricks and the queen at me.

(It was a lot of fun, though--back before it would have been a problem to make the black ranger a black dude and the yellow ranger an Asian girl named 'Trini'. Ah, subversive racial stereotypes of the mid-90's.)

I don't hate Power Rangers because I'm British I hate them because they're awful laugh.gif

*refrains from throwing bricks*

Grange Hill is now based oop North either near Liverpool or Newcastle, can't remember which, darn Northerners *grumble* dry.gif

Bring it back and we want the sausage tongue.gif

Power Rangers was just a little after our time, wasn't it, Pixie? Children's progs are only good at two stages in your life - when you're a kid, and when you're a stoned student chuckling at Tellytubbies.

That said, I do have the Dungeons & Dragons box set, and I love it.

They never got home! Wah!

How exciting is the Thundercats film? Very. That's how exciting. Like Transformers, even if just for the effects.

Everyone's talking about Quantum Leap like it's in the past, but Sam Beckett can live on in you, y'know. We have the boxsets and it's still as fantastic as it always was. Oh, Scott Bakula. How we love you.

The Dungeons and Dragons drinking game is fun.

Every time they do something monumentally stupid, have a drink! You'll be wasted within the hour!

Seriously, they could have gotten home in the very first episode, but they didn't want to leave poor Uni behind. Not like it'd be dissected for medical science if they brought it back to the real world, oh no...

*Ahem*

Thundercats Ho!

FU - it's not great, true enough, but you do begin to notice other levels. Such as just how sarcastic Uni is. And the wonderful fact that the whole of the exposition is summed up in just the opening sequence.

"Hey look! A Dungeons & Dragons ride!"

Sorry, but I was a bit too old for the Power Rangers! I was forced to watch them when I babysat my cousins, though. They adored them and I'm sure they'd be on your side. tongue.gif

I liked He-Man, She-Ra, Pee Wee's Playhouse, The Muppet Show, Smurfs, Captain Kangaroo..and oh god. JEM. I was Jem for at least 3 Halloweens. And to think I almost left her off the list! Oh! And Punky Brewster. I went through a huge phase of wearing sideways ponytails, mismatched shoes/socks, and obnoxious sweaters because I wanted to be just like Punky.

Yeah. I grew up in the 80's. It doesn't show at all. rolleyes.gif

It's cool. I have my entire generation to back me up. And we're huge (can I hear it for the 89-90 miniboom, thank you crack cocaine).

It was a pretty good time, though. Power Rangers, the little Jack Russell terrier who dressed up in ridiculous outfits to play out historical literature, Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys, Transformers--when we were a little older there was Freaks and Geeks. Making massive generalizations, but I think we (15-19 or so) were the last group to watch TV before everyone got cable and some idiot invented whatever they're watching now.
