Teenage Tato

So you wonder if I was always a Couch Tato or did I grow into a full spud?. I'd say I perfected it! Today's post will be on the teenage Tato, and the next will be on Baby Tato. This is not a post that shall include sitcoms....but on drama's that fueled the thirst for continuing series that you had to not miss to keep up! Now did this in a hurry so there are a few shows that i couldnt track down their pictures e.g

COUNTERSTRIKE, STREET JUSTICE , DARK JUSTICE, TIMETRAX ...they were a bit lame but darn it we watched them all...LORD BLESS KTN for opening our eyes. heck even the chick prog SISTERS which run a good 6 years

SO this will be a pictorial post( smile at akiey5)

Let the pics do the talking and refresh those memories...if only we could go back in time...

North and South



Who could forget Orry and George tearing up the dollar to meet up after the war. The evil Elkanah Bent. And Leslie Ann Down.


ROOTS:



From Kunta Kunte thru to Chicken George to Alex Haley....


Neighbours



Ramsey Street: Robinsons and the Ramseys.


V


Wow. Aliens on earth!


Thorn Birds


MMM mmm mmm ever seen a woman curse GOD for taking her two men. She loved two priests-one her son, the other her son's father. So not only had God taken them as Priests he tool their lives too...she played with fire as the priest tasted forbidden fruit!


Renegade


He was a cop! A cop gone bad! Framed for murder...an outlaw...a Renegade cue that music!


Commish



He was funny in his cheeky ways!


Knots Landing



A successful spin off from Dallas. The Ewings...The Somners...Mackenzies...we all remember Paige and Abby! 13 successful seasons-beat that!


Lois and Clark



Oh Teri Hatcher...and Superman as well...the thing missing in smallville is the costume!


E.R



To me the best medical drama to me...even with House and Grey's Anatomy-I argue this was on a league of it's own in 94. PERFECTION...remember they shot an episode live!

Can I say I am first?? But I did have inside info.... lol.....

Do u know I just realized just the other that Commish and the dude in the shield are one and the same??? But in my defense, I dont watch the shield.

Renegade... OMG.... I was so into that show...Lorenza Lamas it was sick. I remember we always wondered whether it was flux that his name on the show was RR [Reno Raines] and his real name was LL [Lorenzo Lamas]....

U sahaud Time Trax...Dale Midkiff.. I thot he was soooo hot!!!

i used to love V ... the way they used to eat rats! that was the coolest.

now, tato dear, at the risk of you carrying out your threat to block my url there are some programmes you missed. cos for sure i wasn't the only one who used to watch the rich also cry, no one but you, acapulco bay (the remixed version of no one but you) and wild rose. come out y'all, you must confess!!

roots was the best ... remember the part where kunta was refusing to accept his slave name? i was traumatised!

thanks for the trip down memory lane! loved commish and knots landing ... i still have about 30 episodes of knots landing dubbed ...Paige, Abby, Anne Matheson, Greg Somner - unbeatable drama series

as for North and South, a truly unforgettable performance by E. Bent, mpaka I can't relate to him playing in more placid roles...

Adrian said...

Aha! i have just remembered that progi "Wind in the Willows"
Toad was a ka-wealthy dude but was either drunk, lonely or depressed. was that a way of making us not want to achieve more out of life?
