In the 80's Magnum P.I was a massive hit, as was The A Team. Do you ever go back and watch them again? Or are they best left as a memory?

I sometimes do this but I've learned to avoid things I liked a long time ago as watching them now can ruin them for me. I guess I'm much more of a critical thinker now so, instead of enjoying a show, I might notice nuances that I hadn't noticed in my youth and it can be quite disappointing. The first thing that comes to mind here is the old G.I. Joe cartoons. As a kid I just took them as being about a superhero. I obviously didn't realize that the cartoons were basically propaganda films. On the other hand, I think I've seen most episodes of Lost at least twice.
I discovered that with Capt America. Hilarious how much of that propaganda just seeps in unnoticed. Very Kiss of the Spider Woman...
I got Hart to Hart cos I loved it and I can't tell you how bad it is. Clearly we were very naive in the 70's & 80's!!
I think it depends on the individual series. For me, I was a child in the 90s, so the programs I watched were cartoons. There are timeless cartoons that adults love just as much as kids, but then there are kids shows that are just for kids. I have fond memories of many kids' shows, but if I were to watch many of them today, I would be disappointed because I have grown out of them. Best leave those ones as a memory.
Of course - how can you avoid it if you have Foxtel. But I can't watch just any or all of them - and no 80's shows at all not even Cheers, unless its the ones with Kirstie Alley - Shelley Long annoys me so much!
Never watched Magnum. But I love Tom Selleck in 'Blue Bloods'.
Have got much time for him, as he looked after the late Nancy Reagan, at Mr Charlton Heston's Funeral, in 2008.



I've got various '60's TV shows on DVD, as well as many UK BBC cop drama's of the last 20 years'. Love them totally!
