Another sadly forgotten 80's show is the Showtime sitcom Brothers, it ran for 5 seasons. Been watching it again with my wife on Youtube. Still laugh out loud funny.

I was just talking about Brothers to someone and I liked that show. By today's standards it was tame but back then was controversial. The only show I hadn't heard of before was My Secret Identity. I've seen a few of those shows.

My favorite was definitely Square Pegs because of the music. It was when New Wave music was breaking free from the underground and becoming popular. New Wave is still my favorite music (and it has evolved and has had other names throughout the years).

Square Pegs, It's Your Move, Double Trouble, and Small Wonder were the ones I liked.

I'd like to see "My Sister Sam" and "It's Your Move" picked up by Antenna TV.

I'm going to guess they didn't include this one because the list is made up of shows that were on the air for an at least respectable amount of time. The Brady Brides only lasted eight episodes, not counting the film.

There's a few un-PC slang words used so far that we've seen on Brothers, but as a whole, and considering it was made for Showtime, it is relatively clean.
