My little voice is telling me to watch more 80’s TV crime dramas.

I don’t know why, but I thoroughly enjoy old TV crime dramas from the 80’s.
The plots were easy to follow, the special effects were laughable, but every once in awhile the story line was really good!
I can remember being a little kid and watching Hart to Hart with my mom. I recently found this classic on Netflix, and I just finished the entire series. Here’s a summary of the show.

It was pretty cheesy, but somehow this wealthy couple solved a murder every week! And seriously, I want to be Jennifer Hart. She has got it all.

When I worked in California about 10 yeas ago, I did straight nights. I would get home about 7:45 am. I found an awesome channel that showed Magnum PI at 8, and Quincy ME at 9.
I love Magnum. I’ve watched the entire 8 seasons. If for some strange reason, you’ve never heard of this great show, here’s some info for you. Magnum pi
I’m also a big Tom Selleck fan. I think he played the character very well. Many layers to Thomas Magnum.

I quite enjoyed Quincy as well, but unfortunately I often fell asleep watching it. However I love medical dramas, and the cases were really interesting. Even if the show was dated, the medical stuff stays the same. I remember one great episode that focused on botulism. I have to find Quincy on line or get some DVDs, and catch a few more. Here’s the synopsis. Quincy

Simon and Simon- ok, but I just never was as invested. Did love the San Diego scenery though.
Anyone have anything to add?
