Why can't ME-TV get rights to a few of these for a change? I'd like to see Trapper John, Hotel, Midnight Caller, and the Western Paradise.

You got 39 out of 40
You casually breezed through that without breaking a sweat!

Missed #40, though I remember that show starring Robert Conrad? The name just escaped me.

Breezed right through because even if I never watched the show, I had at least heard of it... until I got to #40, lol.

Robert Conrad and I think a couple of his sons--as I recall, it was kind of Baa Baa Black Sheep meets Emergency...

That was ridiculously easy

32/40. Not too bad considering I really never watched any of these shows. I'd heard of most of them but I get enough "drama" in daily life and the world news these days. I really enjoy lighthearted and comedy sitcoms and Saturday Sci-Fi!
