Reply Subj: This week's banner and question. What are some of your favorite comedies from the 80s and 90s?

So many awesome 80s comedies.

The Cosby Show: Getting past recent news stuff, it's still a great show.
Cheers: The comedy skewed a bit too macho for my tastes, but it was still good. Preferred Frasier by miles.
Three's Company: John Ritter really didn't get enough credit during his career.
Night Court: It is me or does this series never seem to get enough attention?
Golden Girls: Perfection, y'all are Blanche Devereaux.
Diff'rent Strokes: Don't think about the sad real lives of the kids. Just enjoy the fun.
Jeffersons: One of the best series of all time.
Family Ties: This was more "my" sitcom family than
Married With Children: I'm still amazed they were able to do this series back then.
Soap/Benson: Soap was nearing its end by the 80s, but still a great satire. Both shows just had some great comedic talent.
WKRP: Mostly for Hesseman and Reid, but the others were good.
Taxi: Brilliant!
Amen: Sherman Hemsley scores again!
Bosom Buddies: Nope. Nothing at all creepy about two hetero guys crossdressing an living in an all-women apartment building. Hard to believe this is Forest Gump.
Perfect Strangers: What's not to love about Balki?
Alice: If you disagree, then kiss my grits, dingy! This one is extremely under-appreciated, imo.
Who's The Boss: Had a sort-of crush on Mona (beginning on Soap).
Happy Days/Lavern & Shirley and Barney Miller: Past their prime (and Fonzie jumped the shark in 77), but still good into the 80s (McGinley was only a recurring character until 82).
Mama's Family: fan of the Carol Burnett skits.
ALF: Screw ET. I wanted an alien like him. But what about my cats? Hmm...
Facts of Life: Crushed on Jo... and Tootie.
A Different World: not so much when Lisa Bonet was in it
Gimme A Break: I think I crushed on all of the females in the show at some point for different reasons. Nell Carter was just an awesome person.
Coach: I have to admit that I missed it until syndication. Never really thought much of Craig T Nelson until seeing this show.
Head of the Class: fan of Howard Hesseman.
What's Happening Now: Loved its predecessor more, but any Rerun is awesome.
Mork & Mindy: Don't be a nimnul, kayo?
Punky Brewster: "Every time I turn around, I see the girl who turns my world around." C'mon! 80s Little Orphan Annie!

And from across the pond: Young Ones (there was a time I could recite the lines by heart) and Red Dwarf.

City of Heroes is BACK!
