Anyone else watch this channel? It was launched by director/producer Robert Rodriguez in 2013. They have daily repeats of Miami Vice and an occasional 80's movie like C.H.U.D.

We don't have that channel here. I'd love to watch Miami Vice reruns.

I recently got cable here in Australia and it kinda sucks cos there are no reruns of Knight Rider, Magnum or any other iconic 80's shows that I like - There's Murder She Wrote but it's not the same. Argghhh.

I wish we had this channel. I have dejaview, bit that's about it. I see golden girls, Roseanne and Married with children reruns. But that's about it. Is there such a thing as a Lana Del Rey network?

Hmmm, it would be good to get. Sounds like a great channel. There used to be channels like that but they change over time. Unfortunate.

The problem with The A-Team is that the plot is exactly the same for every episode just with different bad guys. I dunno how it lasted as long as it did.

At least for Magnum, Quantum Leap and a few others actually gave you different scenarios.

The Ateam attracted stupid kids like me. Youre not alone in disliking the Ateam. A guy I work with laughs at it when I bring it up. Especially the 100s of bullets flying at the Ateam and never hitting them.

Murder She Wrote? Being a big Columbo fan, You would think I would have caught an episode of MSW. Should I give it a shot?

I loved the A-Team as a kid but it's unwatchable now. As a kid you don't really pick up that it's the same plot every episode but now it's like, "Here we go, another watermelon farmer getting run off his property".

I remember Murdock did get shot in an episode but I am sure it was because they were aware of critics like us who kept complaining of the unlikelihood of anyone not getting hit. As far as I am aware though that was the only hit in the whole show after expending on average 150,000 rounds per episode.

Murder She Wrote is not a bad show. I used to watch it a lot with my mum as a kid. I really have not watched any though in the recent years so it's hard to say if it still holds up. It definitely was a very popular show that at the time. Perhaps watch one episode and see what you think. I was however being totally sarcastic about not being able to get enough of the show. I do want to watch the Magnum/Murders She Wrote crossover episodes though.

This topic deserves mention again. El Rey is such a gem with its broad selection of offerings which are uncut at nights although I've seen the same a few times well before night time.

Great channel!
