1. V the series wasnt that bad
The only truly bad part of the whole series (mini series included) was the end of the second with the whole "miracle" ending thing.

2. You forgot "Manimal."
This little gem lasted for, oh, three months on NBC.

6. Ah, but Manimal featured the lovely Melody Anderson
AKA, Dale in Flash Gordon.



That gave the show a LITTLE redemption.

4. How could you forget "Automan"?
Except that it was so forgettable?

5. All of 'em
Everything about the '80s sucked. Everything.

Well, except this.





And this.

9. "The Fall Guy"
Just the theme song itself made you change the channel.

12. Who can forget the short lived "Gymkata"?
Starring former Olympic Gymnast Kurt Thomas, in the "ultimate combination of gymnastics and martial arts."

Funny how whenever he got into a fight, there just happened to be a pole or pommel horse shaped object nearby.
