that 80's shows

This post, caused to reminiscence.
and ever since I've been trying to remember, all those shows we used to watch as kids, this is the list for now, there are a few other shows, I struggle to remember...

In no particular order

  • Remington Steele
  • Street Hawk
  • Murder She Wrote
  • Knight Rider
  • Airwolf
  • MacGyver
  • Five mile Creek
  • Beverly hills
  • Punky Brewster
  • Charles in charge
  • What a country
  • Out of this world
  • The cosby show
  • Give us a clue
  • Small wonder

    not to forget the innumerable re-reruns of the movie
    'I dream of Jeanie', it was truly amazing to catch up with the actual show 'I dream of Jeanie'(Season 1-5, S1 is in black & white)only about a year ago.

    and then some soaps and cartoons in Arabic, even though we could not understand a word of the language!

    and some 'R' rated, definitely not meant for kids!
  • Knots Landing
  • B&B

    It's no wonder then where my keen interest in TV shows comes from!

    Deception Pass - 4/12/2008

    80ยบ in Seattle, it would be totally not right if one did not take advantage of such a beautiful day, the weather Gods portrayed a smiling face(a rare, reason to celebrate occasion in Seattle), it only seemed fair to have our share of the sun too! and in some of the worst traffic I've been witness to, it seemed like the entire population of Seattle had exactly the same plans!

    Deception Pass which is about 80 miles from Seattle was our destination. I'll stop talking or rather writing now. A picture truly speaks a thousand words.

    April 10th

    Ever since I can remember, this day has been associated with results, right from Primary School, High School even upto 1st year Pre University. It was a wait for some to find out if you topped the class (not that I ever did, but did come close) or if you just made it. It was also the day from when the official summer vacation began, trips to destinations abroad or natives in some cases were always planned after April 10th. And then there was the whole process of collecting the note books and stationery from the school, to binding the books, always competing as to who would do a better job thus keeping them ready for June 1st, it was all so exciting!

    Gone are those days, yet the nostalgia remains.
