Hulu Awards: Best Show of the Eighties

The third and final category that the panelists will be considering this week is "Best Show of the Eighties."

Remember, Hulu Review readers and the general public can vote on their pick in the comments section of this post. The total audience vote will have the weight of one panel member.

Hollywood is already scouring tv shows from this era to dredge up some movie ideas. "Miami Vice" has been done and I hear a movie about "The A Team" is in the works, so can "Alf: The Movie" be far behind?

Here are the 28 eligible programs: Five final nominees coming soon!

Airwolf
Alf
Archie Bunker's Place
Benson
Buck Rogers
DC Follies
Elvira's Movie Macabre

The A-Team, of course, when a helicopter crashes into a mountain and everybody gets out of the wreckage dazed...now that's a show!

I'm with you Paul....The A-Team all the way! Action without blood and gore, great supporting cast, and those wonderful quotes. I love it when a show comes together!

Although "Miami Vice" had the most impact on pop culture of the 80s, and it had better over all production quaility, sound track, etc., there are two other shows that I think I would have been sorely missed... "Amazing Stories" & "Little House on the Prairie." Yes, it did go off the air in the 80s and had been on a long time and still left me wanting more. :O)

WKRP in Cincinnati has to be one of the best shows in the eighties. With its great talent of writers and actors, the show mixed rather well drama and comedy. My favorite on primetime and my favorite still today on Hulu.

Remington Steele - can't forget those blue eyes and the lock of hair always falling on his forehead. Plus the dialogue was quick and full of wit, perfect for the 80's. Not to mention one of the few strong female characters of that era.

Remington Steele!
Full of great humor, wit, mystery, and romance. Absolutely brilliant with some of the most brilliant actors! My all time favorite tv show.

AIRWOLF, of course. No other show was headlined by movie stars and had a budget to match.

Remington Steele, no contest. The way the characters interact is great. It combines likable characters with great comedy, murder and movie trivia. What could be better?

I'm torn between Simon & Simon, Remington Steele and WKRP. I think I'll have to go with S&S as they were supposedly based in my hometown of San Diego.
