    ...and inspired by me picking up the Cracker box set in the HMV meltdown. So, things you remember fondly but should never revisit, and alternatively things which still stand up today.

    The Bad:

    Cracker.
    Thundercats.
    Doctor Who.

    The Good:

    He-Man.
    Ulysses 31.
    'Allo 'Allo.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    If you have fond memories of it, never, ever watch 'Automan' as an adult. It is worse than you can possible imagine.
    Ditto 'The Black Hole'

    -- boobs do nothing for me, I want moustaches and chest hair.

    The Black Hole scared me to pieces when I was young. I wouldn't go back even if it was amazing.

    Oh - Battle Beyond the Stars as well.

    Still love New Order. They've gone to shit over the last, oh, decade and a half or so, but most of the old stuff holds up.

    Except for the trampoline music vid.

    Oh man, Macguyver. I watched that with French rubbing a few days ago. It was doubly awesome, so much so that I'd watched 5 episodes back-to-back before I realised what time it was.

    Dogtanian, Willy Fogg and Mysterious Cities of Gold still hold up well.

    The Macguyver episode where ants ate his friend was awesomely scary at the time. I suspect it won't look as good if I revisit it though.

    Meant to say "dubbing", but I think I'll leave it there.

    Anyway, Macguyver recruited a cute little ethnic kid to needlessly put in danger for pretty much all the episodes i watched.

    @Mola_Ram

    Did you need about Peter Hook calling the other members of New Order a tribute band?

    Ironic seeing as he's just finishing touring the two Joy Division albums with his latest group.

    Ditto. Put it on 'for the boy'. When he asked to watch something else I told him to climb back in his mum and die.

    Danger Mouse isn't as good as I remember.

    I watched it recently and thought the episodes were on for far too long.

    I thought the first couple of series of Spooks were good at the time. They weren't. They really really weren't.

    Yeah, he's a fucking wanker.

    That book is awful. It should've been called "needless to say I had the last laugh".

    I watched the first ever episode of Red Dwarf a few months ago. A lot of it does date it terribly but actually there was a lot of good there. The writing was incredibly tight. It set up all the rules for the series and set up the situation in 20 minutes, which included explaining what the ship was, what the characters positon in things were, the what and why of holograms. etc. There was a lot of explaining to do, it wasn't just "bloke lives with woman but they're not in a relationship....or are they!?!" That kind of stuff would get dragged out over episodes these days.

    Didn't bother watching the other episodes though.

    I think Red Dwarf stands up today to be honest. Still gets a laugh out of my and series 3-6 in particular are wonderful.

    Also, aged badly: Friends.

    We revisited some of the first two seasons recently. I think you need to check them, shonky acting, paper thin non-jokes getting whooping uncontrolled (canned) laughter, paper thin plots that go nowehere and that particular 90s charm that looks terrible now, laid on with a trowel.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Dunno, there was a repeat on the other day and i decided to make the mrs watch it as she never had.

    by the end of it i was kinda embarassed that i'd told her it was amazing. Can't remember what series it was though.

    Tbh, the basic sit-com-with-a-laughter track has aged. I remember when IT Crowd started, and remembered feeling it had an dated style to it, even then. The Office totally fucked up sitcoms for ever.
