Nat Geo Invetigates and CSI were equally good. Used to watch them regularly.

Mahesh, well Friends is not my favourite actually. Street Hawk was back in those days. Today I find it difficult to choose between Hustle, Prison Break and Heroes from the current series.

How many of you have watched Hustle?

My favourite in the 80s was Star trek, nothing else.

Later in chrono order:

1) Growing Pains
2) Lois & Clark
3) Married with Children
4) Star Trek Voyager
5) Seinfeld
6) Enterprise
7) Sopranos
8) JAG

There was another... Oshin. Very popular in early 92-93, but I am not sure it was English or Japanese with subtitles.

You saw the re-run little boy, I was much older then.

Star trek was first telecast in Black and white. Also on Sunday mornings, even then. Season 1 on Doordarshan. 1979 or 1980. A young and dashing Captain James T. Kirk. And Spock's ears were even pointier.

Hell I remember when we had TV for a just a few hours everyday. One channel. And that mournful Doordarshan theme tune.

Sam, what we saw was also re-run, the original series happened between 1966-69. I too found out many years later about this.

Yeah but Samu, it ran in the US in 66-69. In 78-80 it ran in India for the first time. So technically, we saw the first run. It would be the re-run when they showed it again on indian TV.

Unless...

They didn't show it in India in 1966 did they? I would be totally .

May be I did see the rerun, my home didn't have TV until 1983. I started watching Star Trek only 1983 onwards, that too in black & white.
