We didn't have a TV anymore after I turned 6, and DVDs weren't mainstream yet, but during my middle school years I took every opportunity I had to watch Friends, Charmed, Buffy and Heartbreak High (why the French public television imported that last one, I have no idea!) When P2P networks started being worth something, I had a major Daria period.

It's well known that I've had a thing for Brandy since that show.

No one else watched Twin Peaks? But yes to Transformers, Fraggle Rock, MacGyver, 90120, Star Trek TNG, My So Called Life and a bunch of other stuff mentioned (I seem to have watched a lot of TV in my days, maybe that's why I don't own one) and the Addams Family of course.

Nothing really springs to mind, I was a big nerd who like to watch the news. I remember watching cheesy sitcoms like Home Improvement and I did go through a Dawsons Creek and Charmed stage in my early teens.
Oh yeah: Sabrina the teenage witch...and I liked Daria too.

I watched Twin Peaks! Loved that show although I was really young when I watched it. I also watched almost everything that has been listed. I watched a lot of tv as a kid. It kinda makes me sad to hear that most posters missed out on some great tv shows growing up. Late 80s and 90s tv and cartoons rocked!

I didn't get into Twin Peaks until I was into my late teens. I started being obsessed with all things David Lynch in my younger teens, but you couldn't get Twin Peaks on vhs/dvd for a looong time.

I also grew up on Daria and I think it heavily affected my growing brain, because I basically tried to grow up to be Jane Lane.

I didn't post cartoons or shows for really young kids because uhh that would make my disgustingly long list even longer but here goes...

She-Ra
He-Man
Jem (yes I had Jem dolls too)
Smurfs
Pac-man (this was a short lived show I think but I remember it)
Ghostbusters
Flintstones
Jetsons
Scooby Doo
Fraggle Rock (I already posted this but should I mention I own all 4 seasons?)
Captain Kangaroo
Romper Room
Sesame Street
and then a sprinkling of other cartoons/young tv

And I can't believe no one has mentioned...
Love Boat
Fantasy Island
Knight Rider

I forgot about those shows but Fantasy Island was one of my favorites.

MMC and Roundhouse! I watched a lot of TV, but those were my absolute favorites. I would use a microphone to record the songs from MMC onto a cassette tape and then listen to them on my walkman all the time. Nickelodeon had a show that encouraged viewers to write in with comments and ideas (U2U?) and I wrote a letter asking them to make a show like MMC, jackets and everything, and put me on it. Ha!

In no particular order:
Sesame Street
She-Ra
He-Man
Thundercats
Jem
Cosby
David the Gnome
You Can't Do That on Television
Double Dare
Heathcliff
Star Trek (original in reruns and TNG)
MacGyver
Golden Girls
Smurfs
Clarissa Explains It All
Full House
Ren and Stimpy
Animaniacs

And, of course, The Price Is Right (which I called "Come On Down" for years). Before I moved and started going to school, I stayed with my grandma in the mornings and she watched it every single day. I continued watching it when we had weekdays off school or when I was sick and had to stay home.

Gilligan's Island was probably my favorite show. Oh, how I pondered how they could get soooo lost from only a three hour tour. Man, I was hot for The Professor. There was once a time when I could recount all the sequence of episodes, the change from b&w to color and so forth.

The Flintstones
I Love Lucy
SNL
Rocketship Seven
That Girl -> as a real young'un
Love, American Style -> ""
The Brady Bunch
One Life To Live (soap when real young) Y&R (as a teen)
Hello, Larry
Different Strokes
Facts of Life
Little House on the Prairie - Man did I crush on Pa Ingalls. When I was older, I even wrote his family a condolence letter after he died, I was so distressed, and other than that, I've never written any sort of fan letter in my life.
Family
Family Ties (I remember watching that when babysitting as a teen)
Battle of the Network Stars/Miss Universe/Miss America pageants, etc. - these kind of shows were high hilarity when watched with my brother.

Lots of others that I'm forgetting. Linalil's list is pretty close to mine.

I dunno, many shows through the 70s till around 1983 when I stopped watching TV much other than SNL on Saturdays when I managed to catch it.

I was only able to watch Disney shows when I visited my Grams, we didn't have Disney. But I do remember watching The Mickey Mouse Club and Winnie the Pooh sometimes.

Anyone remember Kids Incorporated and Pinwheel? I was really young for Pinwheel, it came on Nickelodeon. None of my friends remember that one.

Jem (I had a Jem doll too!) Her shoes were big, bigger than Barbies.
Transformers
GI Joe
He-Man
She-Ra
Martin
In Living Color (I was watching reruns of this last night while starting this thread!)
Fraggle Rock
Sesame Street
Mister Roger
California Dreams
Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Dinosaurs
Smurfs
Daria
Rockos Modern Life
Beavis and Butthead
Anything on MTV

I remember Pinwheel...used to watch it at my friend's house when I lived in Louisiana. I couldn't tell you a whole lot about it now, but I remember the theme song!

(It would help if I didn't leave letters out of Louisiana.)
