TV Flashback – 1985

televisionToday is Sunday, and like many people, you may decide to spend the evening curled up in front of the television to cap off the weekend. We thought it might be fun to see what people were watching on Sunday nights, 25 years ago, in February of 1985. If you happened to be loyal to CBS, this is what you could expect:

Did you eagerly anticipate Trapper John, M.D. and Murder She Wrote on CBS? Or were you more likely to be watching MacGyver and the ABC Sunday Night Movie over at ABC? Perhaps you were looking for something a little more out of the ordinary, and tuned into NBC for Amazing Stories and the return of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Share your memories of which shows you remember tuning into 25 years ago on a typical Sunday Night with all of us at Retroland, as we look back 25 years.

    How I love this blog post! :) I am a BIG fan of TV and recently my friend and I actually put a post together for my blog on this very year in television. Here’s the link:

    We did this post based on the Release of Watchman which originally took place in 1985. What a year! I was glued to my set back then (and yes Trapper John was a biggie), plus it was the year shows like the Golden Girls made their debut…

    Where’s my time machine?
