Subj: New banner! Superman's Pal mentioned Airwolf and it got me thinking -

What 80s or 90s shows would you watch the reruns of, that many other people may never (or barely) even have heard of?
Now I had certainly heard of Airwolf and had even watched a few episodes in my lifetime. But it certainly wasn't a show that was on my mind. It would never have occurred to me to look for it on, say, Netflix. But Superman's Pal went to the trouble of buying the show on DVD (admittedly at a very low price) and plans to watch it. I wonder what shows the rest of us might place in the same category; I.e., shows the rest of the world has largely forgotten, yet which still hold a place in our memories. From our time period, of course.
I almost included A-Team for myself, but quickly remembered there have been some relatively recent A-Team experiments, for example in 2006, so I guess that show is still remembered by the general population, maybe thanks to Mr. T.
Other shows that came to mind for me were produced in the 70s, outside of our era, for example the Planet of the Apes TV series, which my cousin and I never missed.
I'll try to come up with something. Maybe one of you will jog my memory.
