    Like I said, that was pretty weird, but then again, I have always been late-nighter (as evidenced by the fact that right now it is 2 am), even as a kid. But I got up just fine in a morning, so I guess my folks didn't think of it as a too huge problem, and I guess they were also considering it as free English language education. :lol:

    Other shows that aired after 10 or so, and I was allowed to watch, weirdly enough:

    In the Heat of the Night
    Crime Story
    Friday the 13th (TV series, not the movies)

    These were mostly something I watched on my own, my folks weren't too interested and they were in Thursday's timeslot, past ten; they would occasionally watch Miami Vice, but not too often.

    However, Knight Rider and Street Hawk were in more popular slot (7:30 pm to 8:30 pm), and they would often watch that with me. Dallas, Dynasty, Falcon Crest -- yeah, saw those too.

    "V" (the original series) caused a bit of a moral panic over here, and some won't-somebody-think-of-the-children successfully demanded that showing it must be stopped, because it is so badly traumatizing kids. So the channel did that... only to show the rest in summer, in past ten time slot, when kids were able to watch it anyway, or have a friend tape it and then watch it at their place.

    The Cosby Show was ridiculously popular, but so was Married With Children, The Golden Girls, Moonlighting, Highway to Heaven, L. A. Law, Matlock, Roseanne etc. As you can see, we got lots of US TV over here.

    However, all this talk so far has forgotten the REAL, TRUE ruler of 1980s.

    I'm talking about HIM, of course.

    MacGyver

    That mullethead probably shaped me more than anything. :lol:

    I never went anywhere without my Swiss army pocket knife close by.

    Including school. And the teachers knew about it. Seriously. (Actually our chemistry teacher also had one on her as well, and once had to use in class, to get a stubborn rubber stopper out of some flask.)

    Ah. 1980s and early 1990s. Definitely different era.

    (Still got my knife within arm's reach, and it has my spare set of keys in it. Booyah!)

    Let me add my congrats on your birthday.

    I bought you a little present -- actually, it was a present for myself, but you get the money. I'm jazzed by your new Iray materials set, which I got this afternoon -- emptied my PayPal account actually, leaving just 84 cents in it! Please keep up the good work. You set a good example for other vendors in the quality and thoroughness of your products.

    Well, now I'm having trouble keeping up. Here's my meagre attempt with Birthday Freebie #2. I'm not a girl, but I had fun anyway. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Sure. When can I pick that up? Keys in it?

    Hey, wait a minute! Shouldn't that be a Testarosa?

    Season 3 is when he got the Testarossa...they blew up the Daytona, in the opener. Seasons 1 and 2 it was a black, 1972, 365 Daytona Spyder (really it was a fake one built on a Corvette frame)...the Testarossa was real.

    Miami Vice aired on the weekend, and I remember programming the VCR before heading out to the nightclub so that I could watch the show after I got home, or the next day. Those were the days. Before all the doom and gloom of the current era we find ourselves in.

    Classic song indeed... though I would have picked the kennedy center tribute to Led Zeppelin, performed by Heart.
    Never expected to see grown men cry like that. ;)

    Oh I loved Miami Vice! Frinday nights at 10pm, you knew where to find me LOL What really drew me to the show was not just the "MTV" style (and Edward James Olmos, Hello, "Bushido"?!? WOW), but the music by Jan Hammer. It was the first fully synth based TV score, at a time when I was immersed and obsessed with synthesizer & early sampling technology in music.

    I <3 the 80s (the cool parts...the avarice & politics...not so much)</p>

    Well that's my ear worm sorted for today. I have very fond memories of Miami Vice from my teenage years. Truly Cath you are spoiling us with these wonderful freebies! Only sorry I'm abroad and can't play with them or your fabulous new shader set, which is sitting in my DIM awaiting download. When I get home I will do my best to repay you with a render or two. Thanks again xoxo
