I assumed the purpose of the poll was to see what other tv shows we watched back in the day besides the Dukes. So I ignored the Dukes in the listing and voted for the A-Team although several of the shows I watched pretty religiously as well, including the Fall Guy and Simon and Simon.

Putting the Dukes in the listing of a poll on a Dukes related board is like having an election where several candidates of several parties are on the ballot but only one party is allowed to vote. Guaranteed winner. ROFL

And some people , :D me , grew up with all these shows.......

I have to agree with 1hellraiser, Macgyver is the only on the list I could not get into for some reason..

Airwolf was on CBS from 84-86, then on the USA Network in 87 with a new cast ...

Hey , does anyone remember the series "Rip Tide" , it was on right after The A-Team on NBC . 2 guys who were private eyes and had a crappy helicopter.

There was also another series on CBS involving a helicopter " Blue Thunder" based on the movie..

One Burning Question here was the show Airwolf cbs answer to Knight Rider or was they both by Universal Studio?

Was Airwolf a spin-off of Knight Rider, because they are so similar as one is on the road and one in the air?

Airwolf was a totally different show to Knight Rider--look at the main characters:

Stringfellow Hawke was reclusive, sensitive, and a loner. Yes, Michael Knight was a "young loner on a crusade...", but he was hardly reclusive. I can see where you might think that Knight Rider was a spinoff of Airwolf, but they were two completely different shows. If anything, Airwolf was intended as a spinoff of Magnum, P.I. (Another Donald P. Bellisario creation, the same man who created Airwolf.)
