Default What are your favorite drama shows pre-2000?

My faves were Law and Order (the 1990-2002 episodes), NYPD Blue, Beverly Hills 90210, JAG, Party of Five, ER, New York Undercover, and Baywatch.

What was yours?

I totally watched Traders.

I watched Babylon 5, so long as it was on free broadcast, the first two seasons at least. I watched ST-Voyager so long as it was free, the last season with Kes, up to the last season when the UPN satellite feed was analog. That feed disappeared from analog for the last Voyager season.

I watched L.A. Law now and again, as well as some detective shows, such as Murder She Wrote, the Columbo movies, and one or two others I don't recall.

I watched that miniseries that was on in the early 1990s that had Robert Loggia and Angie Dickinson. Maybe there will be a thread on those.

I watched shows like Murder, She Wrote and Matlock as well as the Perry Mason made for cable movies.

I also admit that I watched Melrose Place and Beverly Hills 90210.

umm, it has to be only regular dramas, not sci-fi shows, okay?

Beverly Hills was Global, I think Melrose Place was CTV/BBS. CFMT showed re-runs of Melrose Place for at least one season (possibly 1994-95).

What are anyone's other fave dramas from before 2000? And remember, it has to be 100% pure dramas, not action or sci-fi shows okay?

Don't forget about channels and shows from back then that were available in the US but not in Canada.

Okay, International, there was an Australian version of The Mod Squad, that for some reason, aired on my local Baton station.

Jesus H. Jones! I watched so much TV and I can't remember a thing except for Knots Landing which folded in 94.

How about a vote for Wiseguy? I loved that series when it first aired.
