...........the more cheesy the better. Annotate your offering with an opinion or two.

1. McGyver ....so bad it was good

2. ''just one more thing " Columbo

3. TJ Hooker....the amazing Captain Kirk (91)was humiliating himself every week. Jeez that divorce must have been expensive.

4. Magnum PI.....interesting how a gun-toting detective was named after a Champagne Bottle or an Almond ice cream on a stick.

Swallow. A Norwich-based detective who is not afraid of breaking the law - doing 80 on the motorway, that kind of thing.

The actual programme is of course I'm Alan Partridge.

I still retain the ability to binge watch this series on DVDs for those of us who remember them! Once every 3/4 years I would say.

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

I am a wee bit embarrassed to admit that when I bought the VHS of this, I played it so much it fell apart.

Not only interesting but very forward-looking, given that Magnum PI appeared in 1980, nine years before the Walls Magnum.

I offer 'Brannigan' starring John Wayne. Not great, but it carried you along and there's the novelty (for the 70s) of a Hollywood star - albeit an ageing one - plying their trade in London/the UK.

Petrocelli - probably still building his house.
Quincy - spent most of his time arsing around while his Japanese assistant did all the work.
Baretta - spent a lot of time with his bird.
Hart to Hart - could be about anything from aerobatics to zoology
and Jonathan was an expert at it.

Lots of the Mystery Movies - Banacek, McCloud, Shaft, McMillan & Wife, Madigan, etc.

Brannigan has a big punch up in a pub and a bloke staggers out and says "I'm only here for the beer".
Maybe Double Diamond worked wonders for John Wayne.

Cannon.

The eye-shaped window at the rear of his car used to fascinate me... as did the waves on his belly.

.

reminds me of a fella who made a Cameo Appearance ( in Absentia ) on Better Call Saul.....for wearing the dashing light-blue suit....it's....

Matlock

....also a town in England, on the river Derwent.
--------------

and for living in a mobile home, and even beating up baddies inside it......it's

The Rockford Files
