Selleck was the man, and there's a layer of grit and darkness that many other shows didn't manage to pull off (Miami Vice included).

I think of it as very subversive for its time. I kept trying to think of what Laura Petry did all day with herself.

Batman The Animated Series: The animation is still solid & I still wish most of today's cartoons would use the Dark Deco art style. Gotham City, even though BATS was set in the present day, looking like a 1930's Chicago gangster type city will always have that timeless appeal. The writing & stories are intelligent & it wasn't dumbed down for a "kid's show". The voice acting is incredible & Kevin Conroy will always be the definite Batman voice.
On the other hand, I never thought I would say this, but X-Men The Animated Series hasn't aged that well. The storylines were solid & would sometimes continue throughout the whole season (there would be Previously on X-Men recaps that would rival the Previously on 24 recaps for length), the writing relied on too many one-liners & screams. The animation was also very clunky. It was set in the 90's, but a lot of the characters still had outdated 80's hairstyles.

i didn't think the 70s were funny the 1st time around. but hey to each his own.
I DID make a discovery today.
I caught the 1st season of SOAP this week..another show i haven't seen since it ran on broadcast
and much to my surprise so far, aside from a few fashion choices, the show doesn't date.
there are no pop references at all, it is still quite charming farce.
not AS funny the 1st time around, but just as completely silly. I am a little shocked
it is another show i wouldn't not have thought about rewatching, except i wanted to see it was anything like i remembered.
I can't wait for Burt to be taken by aliens and then to become invisible.
