Hill Street Blues was excellent but I’ve never seen it in reruns. What’s the problem. I’d love to see St Elsewhere and some of the others like Ben Casey, Dr Kildare, Dr Hudson’s Secret Journal, Law and Orders counterpart in ? - I’m drawing a blank. NYPD Blues was also a favorite.

37 out of 40
A lot of them I didn't recognize, so I just guessed.
Guessed some right, guessed some wrong.

You got 40 out of 40
You casually breezed through that without breaking a sweat!

The Law & _______ McGraw (1987–88) Miss this one and I like it. It was a spin off of Murder She Wrote!

39/40. I remembered most of them but had to guess at three or four. I used to love Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, with Stacy Keach. That was a cool show. "I'll make a note."

35 out of 40, most of them I just sailed through, but a few of them tripped me up. And like some of the others, I never heard nor remember sonny spoon, but it is a weird name or title to begin with. I knew so many of them, I got cocky and missed 5 :)

I'm with you; Sonny Spoon, the only one I missed, I had also never heard of.
