Remember when there was always something half decent to watch on TV? These days, there are hundreds of channels churning out a whole lot of rubbish. However, with less than a handful of TV channels, back in the 80s we seemed to be spoilt for choice. For many of us who grew up in the 70s and 80s, these were the golden days of TV. Comedies were actually funny, movies were entertaining and Saturday mornings were pure bliss.
