"Yes Minister" and "Yes Prime Minister."

Brilliant satire!. Anyone who wants to understand politics should see these. Whether they are British or not. The political scam works the same in Japan and the U.S.A.

The Wonder Years comes to mind right away. Easily most memorable show from my childhood. Recently that would definitely be The Wire and Band of Brothers (if that counts here).

2 ( +2 / -0 )

I remember The Twilight Zone would always scare me as a kid, especially the opening and closing theme and credits.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

All J cartoons and mini series of the 80s ( with monsters who say "arghhhh" , sankukai, captain harlock/ albator, and yes goldorak), also benny hill, columbo, magnum for good measure.

Basically anything with either a fast car, a bad guy or a monster in it. Easy ;)

As a little kid, Sunday Night at the London Palladium. The show itself wasn't all that great I suppose, but it was Sunday night and if we'd had our baths we were allowed to sit up past our bedtimes to watch it in our pyjamas, eating Mum's home-baked bread rolls with real butter (it was margarine the rest of the week) and drinking cocoa. Nice cuddly memories. I especially enjoyed the puppets - Topo Gigio, Daisy May, and the talking dog.

Other than that, in no particular order, Monty Python, The Man from UNCLE, Top of the Pops, Ready, Steady, Go!, Steptoe & Son, Dr. Who, The Monkees, Star Trek, The Caesars and Up Pompei.

So far two keep cropping up - Fawlty Towers and Monty Python. It's very interesting that Fawlty Towers had such incredible success with only TWELVE (12) episodes.

Reruns of Star Trek, Saturday Morning Cartoons.

It is nice to see so many Japanese shows being fondly remembered. How about 'Ninja butai gekko' or 'Harimau'?
