A question for Gen Xers and Boomers. I miss two. One was a Supernatural like show called Friday the 13th the series. It had nothing to do with the Jason movies and followed a trio of antique dealers tracking down cursed antiques. Each antique had a unique curse and had to be used in a particular way but basically you killed people and it granted you something you wanted. The other was called Midnight Caller. In it an ex cop became a late night talk radio host. The calls led to catching criminals, solving crimes, and addressing social ills.

Also Magnum PI, Cheers, Chips, Airwolf, and Ripley's Believe it or Not, Knight Rider.

At the time I loved The A Team, but now I realize how stupid it was.
