The Colbys Fallon going up in a flying saucer in her shoulder pads! 1980s beautifully bonkers bliss!
Connie Me and my family and friends viewed Connie as an enjoyably camp comedy (although intended as drama). 80's TV reviewer Hilary Kingsley, and others, also took a very tongue-in-cheek view of this beautifully hammy series.
Brookside It truly was groundbreaking when it began in the 1980s - filmed in real houses and fearlessly political. I remember its early years fondly.
Loadsamoney Middle class comic ridiculing working class late 1980s geezers who suddenly had a bit of "wonga" or "dosh".
Margaret Thatcher I often wonder what have happened to Mrs T if Ronald Reagan hadn't become President of the USA in 1980. No doubt she well and truly climbed in with him - and we were heavily influenced by 1980s America. Even the term "yuppie" was coined in America!
Just Good Friends "At the time it was very popular, but in retrospect, it was all that was bad about sitcoms of the day."
Goodness. I liked it and still do.
