Which would you choose and why? You are still yourself but injected into that world with those characters. You get to hang out and be a part of the main characters' everyday lives, so you are definitely connected to the story and characters.

I think I would choose to enter the world of Cheers. I think it would be a blast to hang out at the pub all day and night, cracking jokes and having a great time. There's always something happening.

My favorite show is Miami Vice, but I'm too much of a weenie to actually get involved. I wouldn't last 2 seconds under cover. The Colombian drug lords would smell a rat and feed me to the alligators!

Great thread idea Secret! So many to choose from. I always was so jealous and envious of Ricky on Silver Spoons, so I would have loved to live as him in that house.

Helen: I don't know how you do it. I need to borrow some of your guts, girl!

80sR: I didn't see that pick coming - good choice! If you're lucky, maybe you can get your hands on Erin Gray  -

Muffy: I think you might have a fight on your hands over Bert - DiPesto won't give him up that easy!

Good call on Vice, Secret-A [Smile] Just to be able to live in a place where it is totally acceptable to wear lime green with pink and turquoise, and roll up yor jacket sleeves, without feeling like a complete jackass!

Im going with SHOGUN... ancient Japan! With my mad skills I would be king of the samurais in no time. Those *******s wouldn't know what hit em'! Or maybe they'd just chop my head off at first sight, but still, it would be worth the trip!

C'mon Crash. I know you wanted to say The Facts of Life.

For me it would be The A-Team. That way I could alert Hannibal when there was another hard done by watermelon farmer who was about to get run out of town by overbearing and unsatisfied hicks. I would also extort The A-Team for money. If they did not give me fifty percent of the take I would alert The U.S Army on their whereabouts, because they obviously need all the help they can get and are starting to doubt themselves and feel insecure due to average watermelon farmers being able to find The A-Team and them being radically unsuccessful.

This is how the opening sequence to The A-Team should go.

In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune living off watermelon farmers misfortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, bearing in mind the prerequisites for finding them are being a watermelon farmer and definitely not affiliated with the armed forces in anyway whatsoever, however it's ok if you are a Vietnam Vet, well then just maybe you can hire... The A-Team.

Your choices are good so far. There are still a few hold outs. Maybe they already live in a make believe world?

Any 80's American sit-com ('Kate and Allie', 'Charles in Charge', etc) because life always seemed to be good in them.

That or 'The Young Ones', because I like the idea of being able to smash your head through a brick wall without damaging it.

I really like SA's points about CHEERS, and I'd like to sit there with him, but since it's already taken....hmmmm.....maybe FAME. I love music, play the guitar and sing...though certainly not the artsy type as portrayed in the show, but can't help thinking it might have been cool to hang out there. I also like the idea of New York in the 80's.....a very unique atmosphere that that gives me oooey goooey feelings...probably since it's been featured in many movies, TV, etc....it's peacful to me. Wouldn't mind checking out a jazz club or two either....

The Young Ones Rocks. This is by far the most quoted stuff from any mvoie or tv show from myself and my brother.

I watch The Young Ones regularly still.

Kev, I'm seeing you in visions of Fast Forward type dancing rehearsals and street performances. [Big Grin]

Logan, you would perfect for Charles In Charge. Good thinking there.

You're welcome....I have enough hair on my legs to make white leotards look black...not to mention a butt that's as flat as a pancake...my wife thinks it's cute...I think it's downright embarassing....try to get that image out of your head!

Quantum Leap. I reckon I have seen every episode but along time ago. I used to be obsessed with Quantum Leap.

Lets face it. All us 80's lovers want time travel to be possible [Cool]
