...a popular series from the 70's or 80's without googling it, and describe it here? Here are mine: Eastenders - some old boy dead in a chair, few of them break in, then nearly 40 years of utter misery. Magnum P.I. - for some reason trying to break into the Lodge whilst evading Higgin's Dobermans. Knight Rider - man with leather jacket get's shot in the mush - then does a Luke Skywalker and comes back with a whole new face, same huge hair and leather jacket.
