You shouldn't remember any of them if you are as young as you say you are.

Wish the jackass who did the poll would have put an "all of the above" option. Each show was special in it's own way, but since I have to choose I will go with Riptide because Joe Penny went on to be in Jake and the Fatman.

I second the call for 'all of the above'...
And what, no Rockford Files?

Didn't that end in 79 or 80? These are all 80's gems listed.

I remember Simon and Simon and Magnum being together for a spell. Not the Rockford Files. I have a book I picked up 20 years ago that has every network schedule from the late 40's to the late 90's listed. I'll have to see if our fuzzy memories are right.

Yeah... Long ago, and far away.
And there's Cannon, and Starsky and Hutch, and Fall Guy, and Columbo... And what was that Telly Savalis one? He's always walking around with a sucker in his gab...  :shrug:

I haven't watched a network show in years. I do either buy on DVD the old series or find them on line streaming. I found a shady website where some questionably legal stuff is trafficked. Picked up a super rare one season only Burt Reynolds cop series called Dan August with Norman Fell. It's awesome.

Buck Rogers wasn't a Cop/Detective show.

Charlies Angels was the 70's

The other 3 are acceptable.

Yeah, but most of it was in the 70's. All the shows Wing put up started in the 80's.

I don't see how there can even be a question:

Cui bono?

Walk in Wisdom
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.

You're missing Hardcastle and McCormick too.

Peirce Brosnan had a really bad spy/cop show in the 80's too.
