Title: The 80's and 90's TV thread!
Post by: dark-daventry on May 02, 2006, 01:48:40 PM
I am making so many thread's lately! This thread is for us all to discuss shows from back in the day... I would like to please refrain from current TV, unless it has a tie to back in the day. (Family Guy counts, as it was made in the 90's, if at the end, so therefore, it can be discussed here! If something was made in the 70's, that's also fine! Basically anything that does not tie to current day TV is perfect for the thread!) Now let's just hope Yonkey doesn't shut this thing down! XD

I would first like to start with a personal favorite of mine: Ronin Warriors! I know this already has a thread, this thread fits that show, and many more! (Hopefully!)

Oh yes! I remember that show! My usual online name is TV Geek, because that's what I am!

I have a whole list of TV shows I used to watch, do watch, or watch from time to time, or have heard of. I will post it when I have it! (It's huge!)

When I was younger I'd love to watch The Disney Afternoon Shows. Ducktales was one of the first TV shows I ever watched. Back then we didn't have a TV in our apartment and wouldn't get one for some time. I think we finally got one when I was about 11. I was raised on reading books so to see any shows I had to visit my friend down the street. This was a blessing in that I learned to love all types of media instead of just TV and videogames. Nowadays I read lots of books and watch cable TV, Play Videogames, Use a Computer, Listen to Radio, and read Comics. So I remember fondly the few hours I got to spend watching TV back then but I don't regret have missed some shows.(Pewee Hermon XP) And over all I have a more creative view on life which allows me to be very comprehensive and creative. :)

There used to be so many toons I would watch....

I used to watch all of the Disney Afternoon shows faithfully.

Then there were all the Nick toons I lived for, like the original Doug and Rocko's Modern Life.

There were countless others too....Muppet Babies, Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, Batman The Animated Series (back when it was done in the style of the Tim Burton films), Garfield & Friends....

Cartoons on TV were better back then. :yes:

Was that the one that used to be on Fox Family, now known as ABC family? I really miss that show! I don't like the new mega-man. Megaman NT Warrior is so stupid!

Yup, thats the one, though I watched it back when it first aired on plain ol' Fox. That show RULED! I used tp pretend that I was Megaman, stealing powers, zapping evil robots, and foiling Dr. Wily's plans. Ah...good times...

For once we agree on something! YAY!  ;D

That show was THE BOMB! I used to get up every Saturday at seven, and watch all of the shows right until the end of the block, which was like twelve... I also miss Thundercats, but I have the DVD sets. I have the complete first season, and I have the first half of the second season. (The second season is a lot better than the first, in my opinion!)

Is it a season set, or something like volume 1, 2,3 ect...? I hate things like that personally! I like season sets, or even better, series sets! (I have a series set for Ronin Warriors. It's the complete series in one 12 disc set...)
Title: Re: The 80's and 90's TV thread!
Post by: Jafar on May 04, 2006, 03:41:52 PM
It's two seperate sets, one disc for each season, I think.

According to the best Mega Man site EVER, there were 3 seasons, but the 3rd didn't get past the first episode, so it's probably mixed in with the second DVD.

Post by: dark-daventry on May 04, 2006, 04:46:19 PM
That's really sad. What's the link? I'd like to see it! Ronin Warriors was going to have a third season based off of the third OVA, but it never happened. I now plan to make the third season myself... But a third season should have been made. It would have been good! I also miss Monster Rancher quite a lot! That was the best! (Correction: One of the best!)  :P

Post by: Dirk Delshire on May 07, 2006, 01:40:08 AM
I kinda liked Megaman but I didn't really watch a lot of it. It didn't seem to live up to the way i envisioned it in my mind back when I played the very first game on NES. I've never seen Ronin Warriors is it an Anime show? If we're talking all the shows in the Nineties I have a big list of shows I watched. But for now I wanted to mention Sonic The Hedgehog.(The one on ABC not the stupid one that came later.)

True. I've never heard of them!

Yes, Ronin Warriors is an Anime. I remember I used to go to Blockbuster and get a Sonic DVD. One day I picked up the wrong one, and it was about these to people, one some kind of chicken thing, and another I don't remember, and Sonic had to stop them. It was quite boring. But I think I know the one you're talking about, and I really like it! It was so good! I really miss it now!

And in other news, I just got the first season of Batman Beyond!

Not really odd :P. It's a series of comedies based on history with Rowan Atkinson as the main protagonist. The first one starts out  with the Plantagenets, the second one with Elizabeth Tudor, the third one  in Prince George of Wales' court and the fourth one during the second world war.  Each are composed of 6 movies (together 24). And the historical aspect is quite amusing.

I read that old shows like the Wonder Years are not likely to come out on DVD.  The reason is because of the music.  The music in the shows was licensed for television but not for DVD's because no one knew then what a big market DVD's would be.  If Hollywood wants to produce them on DVD's now they must pay large sums of money to pay to license the music again.  I read about this in the Wall Street Journal about a week ago.

This thread is basically for retro TV. So it's not limited to just the 80's or 90's. Basically anything not partaining to current TV. I will start a thread for that though!

You don't like Viva La Bam? (Some people don't!) I love it! I know people that don't see the point in it... I think...
