Name the Title of that 70s/80s Show

Oki doki, time for a game show! Taking off from Sky’s lead, I present to you another quiz. This time please identify the title of the television series refered to the clues below. Warning: there are shows here that only my batchmates can identify. Proceed!

1. Once upon a time, there were three little girls who went to the police academy. (Charlie's Angels)
2. Eric Estrada and Larry Wilcox on bikes. (CHiPs) Take note of the proper spelling!
3. Maggie Gioberti and the rest lived on this wine plantation. (Falcon Crest)
4. These bears sure can stare! (Care Bears)
5. The people in Moonbase Alpha flew Eagles. (Space: 1999) Too much of a giveaway if I mention Commander Koenig and Maya.

7. A talking car and a guy named Devon. (Knight Rider)
8. These girls had wristwatches that serve as communicator and weapon. (Electra Woman and Dyna Girl)
9. He’s a monster who has a Big Daddy, a Big Momma, brothers Blurp & Slurp, and a lobster for a family pet. (Sigmund and the Sea Monster) "and Johnny and Scott are friends" ika nga ni Leigh. Talagang may "and" yun, even though Sigmund IS a sea monster himself! Ewan ko ba.
10. Who’s the high school guy who “can’t lose”? (Parker Lewis Can’t Lose)
11. This dune-buggy has supernatural powers.

Holy f**king shit!!! You know the TV show UFO?! Wow, I'm impressed. I didn't realize you are that old, mwhahaha! (evil laughter)

You know, of course, that there's another UFO series on TV, yun lang nga lokal: UFO -- Urbana, Feliza and Others starring Nanette Inventor and Mitch Valdez with Lou Veloso.

By the way, mali ang #8, hindi Charlie's Angels yun.

Oh yeah, one more: UFO was one of the shows which I thought only my contemporaries knew. Hi-yuk-yuk-yuk! :-)

ay. ang isa pang alam kong gumagamit ng wristwatch bilang communicator ay yung lumang Batman and Robin. saka pala Bioman. he he.

di ko makakalimutan yang UFO na yan kasi di ko nasagutan yan sa isang trivia quiz show na sinalihan ko sa school. di dahil sa napapanood ko yan. he he. pero Urbana at Felisa (s yata yun hindi z) rings a bell.

naalala ko tuloy si Tessie Tomas as Boni Buendia.

(I deleted the original comment cuz may dinagdag ako.)
Korek ka sa Falcon Crest! In one of their season cliffhangers, they put the whole cast in a private jet and it crashed. Who will survive and who will die?! Buti na lang hindi sila nag-crash sa island ng "Lost". In another season cliffhanger, there was a massive earthquake (siyempre, nasa California kasi sila). Again, who will survive and who will die?!

Haaaay. Mamaraz galore!

Your dad must be one cool dude if he watched the British UFO series. Maybe he also watched Dr. No? Or Brimstone and Treacle?

I'm sorry but none of the shows you just mentioned are here. Sayang, hindi ko naisip isali yung mga yun! How about Dance Fever, That's Incredible!, and Real People? Or that game show na may "No whammies! No whammies!"

Blogger McVie said...

Ay mali, hindi Brimstone & Treacle. Sapphire and Steel pala! That was a cool Brit series.

"Pa, may pinapatanong si McVie. Saka pakisagot naman yung quiz nya sa blog nya. Thanks."

O ayan pakihintay na lang ang sagot nya. He he.

Pag yang Papa mo nagmulto sa akin...! Papupuntahin ko siya sa iyo para sagutin niya yung 80s TV quiz mo!

Puwedeng mag-usap yung Papa mo at Daddy ko, pero mukhang walang sibi si Daddy ko dahil hindi naman siya mahilig manood ng TV unless basketball o news.

oh my. i hope i didn't become insensitive in that area. pasensya na po, masyado akong naging excited.

yes, i think he mentioned dr. no to me once. he also introduced me to mission: impossible when GMA-7 had reruns back then. he's also completed the vintage james bond franchise.

yun lang po.

Oh don't worry, I'm not sensitive to spirits either--I'm too grounded to feel or see them. I was just joking about your dad making moomoo to me, hehehe. :-)

Hoy Leigh, wag ka nang magkunwaring bata ka pa. Sagot na sa quiz! Hihihihi.

Magkabistuhan na tayo ng mga edad!
