      In 1981 we had Greatest American Hero.

    I loved this show at the time, but I'd be hard pressed to remember anything about it now besides the costume and the theme song.

He was a bumbler with his heart in the right place. Last guy in the world who would have seen himself as a superhero. He had Superman's power set except I don't remember if he had heat vision or super senses.


      In 1985 we had Misfits of Science, if you count that.

    Never heard of it.

I've heard of it but I never watched it.


      In 1988 we had Superboy.

    Somehow I missed this as well though I am aware it was on.

I missed this too and don't know how, except to say my wife at the time wasn't into such shows.


      In 1990 we had the Flash.

    Loved it. Watched it again a couple of years ago. Lots of fun. My son, a fan of the CW Flash show, has started watching it.

I have it on DVD. I've watched every episode. A little too corny and campy at times. This was especially disappointing because it didn't need to be. There was plenty of serious drama, high speed action and non-corny humor. The campy stuff could easily have been left out.


      Of course in 1993 we had Lois & Clark.

    I would watch this off and on but would like to give it another go some time.

My wife at the time was into this show so I saw most of it. This is the only Superman depiction in any medium that ever made me care about the Lois and Clark romance, or about Lois at all. The comic book Lois has never meant anything to me.


      In 1997 we had Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    I remember watching several of the first season eps, but that was it.

The first three seasons (which coincidentally are all on topic here) were by far the best. When Angel left and the gang graduated high school, the whole dynamic changed. I still watched it, but with a sense of loss.
