10. 21 Jump Street
And we all fell in love with Johnny Depp.
9. American Dreams
Will Estes is hot. Put him in dress blues and you have the perfect show. Oh and American Bandstand. I love hearing all that music! This show was hitting on major historical revolutions in the 70s. It was cut off without an end. Maybe the public wasn't ready to relive the Vietnam War on television.
8. Perfect Strangers
Larry was sarcastic. Balki was clueless. They made for a great pair! I would be so happy if this show came back I would do the dance of joy! Don't be ridiculous.
7. Saved by the Bell: The Original
Its the amazingly stereotypical high school show. In reality, these people would never be friends. On TV, it made for great comedy. But a principal who really needed to focus more on running the school and less on the social hijinks. I wonder what that show would have been like with Facebook?
6. Punky Brewster
I wanted to BE Punky Brewster. She single handedly made bandanas cool outside of motorcycle gangs. And she had the coolest tree house in the universe.
5. Bosom Buddies
Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari have to dress like women to live in their apartment. I never did understand why they didn't just find a different apartment. I also didn't get how anyone believed they were women. They made the worst lipstick choices.
4. Doogie Howser
Who doesn't love a genius kid with his sarcastic trouble causing BFF Vinny? Plus there were those great journal entries on his Comodore 64 at the end of the show, which of course Jerry Springer later stole and used on his show.
3. My So Called Life
The nervous hair-flip, semi-requited love and existential confusion of Claire Danes’ Angela Chase made the world less-lonely for the sort of artsy grunge-era high school kids who would go on to rule the world—or at least work at indie magazines. Or record stores. Or be 34 years old and still wishing she had started a band, or learned to dance, or paint. Ahem. I mean, the dudes were hot and the teen angst flowed like the rain in Seattle.
2. Monty Python's Flying Circus
And now for something completely different….
1. Dead Like Me
The grim reaper is an 18-year-old directionless college drop-out named Georgia Lass whose post-life boss is a bank robber who died in the 1920s played by Mandy Patinkin. Sass. Sarcasm. And death notices are given on post-it-notes at a coffee house. Two seasons was NOT enough.
