Default (Almost) Forgotten Gems of the Past

Hi all.

A friend of mine was asking if I knew of a show from the 80's that he couldn't remember the title of. After describing it I realized he was talking about Werewolf (1987-88).

It's funny how we forget little gems of greatness from our past. It got me thinking about shows that I remember watching. Some I can only remember cool bits from because I was quite young. So I thought I'd start a thread to see what you all miss from "back in the day" when you were a little kid.

Here's my list, they may not have been the most awesome shows, but I loved them as a kid. Many only had one or two seasons. I wonder how many would hold up now? I would like to see some of them remade as long as they can keep the "heart" and "essence" alive.

Werewolf (1987-88)
Lucan (1977-78)
Bigfoot and Wildboy (1977-79)
The Amazing Spiderman (1977-78)
Life and Times of Grizzly Adams (1977-78) Loved!!!
Quincy (1976-83)
Battlestar Galactica (1978-79) Loved the remake
Bionic Woman (1976-78)
Hazel (1961-66) I wasn't alive yet so saw it in syndication in mid 80's
BJ and the Bear (1979-81)
Buck Rogers in 25th century (1979-81)
Man from Atlantis (1977-78)
