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.

I remember Airwolf from when I was a kid but I don't remember any specific episodes. I probably never saw more than one or two. So this is interesting to see them all now, I had no idea what was really going on. I'm trying to decide if Jan-Michael Vincent is compelling or a terrible actor. He kind of goes both ways.

I also picked up the whole series of Greatest American Hero a couple of years ago. Now I did remember a few specific episodes from when I was a kid and it was fun to rewatch. I didn't make it through the whole thing yet though.

I would probably enjoy a rewatch of The A-Team. Or MacGyver. I definitely want to rewatch Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman, especially the latter, it's the one I saw more of. I remember her fighting HAL 9000?

Oh, you know what was good? I picked up the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon a few years ago, that was fun to watch again. I didn't remember all the episodes, especially the one when the main guy decides they should stop screwing around and just kill Venger so he will stop messing up their way home. Dark!
