Since we probably all loved the same cartoons as a kid around the globe, that's not so interesting to me. But what about non-cartoon shows? What were your favorites as a kid (and I mean kid, like when you were 6-12 years old)? Ideally accompany your post with a video (of the intro, for instance). After my parents divorced when I was 2 years old, I lived with my dad who didn't have a TV until he remarried and his 2nd wife brought one into the house. That was when I was 7. I quickly developed a liking for cheesy action series, those that my parents would let me watch anyway. An instant favorite of mine when it came out in 1998 (when I was 8) was Medicopter 117: It was a cheese-fest of an action-drama about the crew of an air rescue service, featuring some of the most improbable storylines ever (like stolen vans full of nitroglycerine). But it had a cool helicopter and explosions and car chases and as a kid I loved it. The stuntwork was surprisingly decent for a German production though IIRC. My other love was Power Rangers. I mean, what kid DIDN'T love Power Rangers? I never had that many toys (I always wanted Lego stuff), but I watched the series whenever it was on. I didn't like it quite as much as Medicopter, though, because somehow its "real life" action always was a little more exciting to me. So, what were your favorite live-action series as a kid?
