Name these '80s action shows from the characters' first names alone!

Can you match Angus, Bosco and Jean-Luc to their correct shows?

The '80s were an era of action! Car chases! Explosions! Stuntmen! That's why we're using exclamation points!

The television shows of the era gave us talking cars, chic narcs, superheroes and a man who could make anything out of duct tape. 

You know them all by name. But perhaps by their last names. Here, we're only giving you the first names. The main characters are listed first, which is a clue.

The clock is ticking…! Can you diffuse this quiz?
  1. Jean-Luc, William, Geordi and Beverly
  2. John, Templeton, H.M. and Bosco Albert
  3. Bo, Luke, Daisy and Jesse
  4. Michael, Devon and Bonnie
  5. Thomas, Theodore, Rick and Jonathan Quayle
  6. James, Ricardo, Martin and Regina
  7. Angus, Pete and Jack
  8. Thomas Jefferson, Vincent and Stacy
  9. Ralph, Bill, Pam and Tony
  10. Rick, A.J. and Cecilia

10/10. I thought the "A" in B.A.'s name stood for "Abdullah". Fortunately, I knew the "B" was for "Bosco".

I have never heard a name for the A in B.A. as far as the tv series goes. Maybe the 2010 movie established it? The episode where B.A.'s mom is attacked and they go protect her, she spends the episode calling him Bosco. I do know In the first episode Hannibal jokingly says B.A. stands for Bad Attitude.

6/10 I think I saw one episode of Magnum. None of the rest.

Ohhhh, "Magnum P.I." the original, was one of my favorite series' back then. Don't watch, and never will watch the remake, that is currently on the air now. It is not the same without Tom Selleck in the lead role. I know he's on "Blue Bloods" now.
