Perfect Strangers hands down. There aren't many series I'd buy, but that one I would. Hilarious, creative, clean and a good mix of clever and physical humor.

Significant dropoff from the quality of the 70s. I have to go with Cheers here, but I didn't really start liking Cheers until Kirstie Alley came on board.

Cheers. I think I like more now than I did when it first aired.

Well yeah, but I don't think people think of it as an 80s show.

Same here, I started liking Cheers when Kirstie was on it. Not the biggest fan of Shelly Long.
