80s Television Shows
Cheers was a comedy series about a bar with a colourful cast
The main characters are Sam Malone, the owner of the
bar and a retired baseball player; Dr. Frasier - the "resident
psychiatrist" who frequents the bar and could often use a little
analysis himself; Norm - a semi-professional beer drinker and Cliff
- a thirty-something mailman who still lives with his mother. To get
away from their "hum-drum" lives, they all come to the bar where
"Everybody Knows Your Name".
This TV show was a primetime soap opera about a family that had
created a dynasty out of the Texas oil industry.
From the Southfork
ranch, they wheeled and dealed in the business world and dealt with
their personal lives involving love, affairs, jealousy and even
hate. The series pretty much revolved around trying to outmaneuver
others people both financially and personally and to keep others
from doing the same to them.
The Dukes of Hazzard:
The Dukes of Hazzard was a comedy series. Boss Hogg ransHazzard
County. Well, except for the Dukes anyway.
It's not that he didn't
want to run them too, but their car named "General Lee" was just too
darned fast and they were too darned smart for Sheriff Roscoe P.
Coltrane to catch them! Speaking of the car, it was bright orange in
color with a confederate flag on the roof. The horn played the first
few notes of "Dixie" and you could be sure that it would be involved
in car chases and unreal jumps in every episode.
The Golden Girls:
This TV show took place in Miami Beach, Florida where four women live
They're best friends but as with any group of people
sharing a place to live, they also get on each other's nerves. Many
middle-aged issues are dealt with such as dating, losing a spouse
and dealing with ex-spouses.
