Mommy Bloggers T.O.T.W - Favourite tv show as a kid
Growing up in South Africa meant that we really had strange tv shows. Television only found its way to our fine land in 1976 (the year I was born) and we only got half an hours worth of news for the first few years.
My first memory of a favourite show was an Afrikaans classic called Trompie. Essentially a story about a naughty little farm boy who used to get into mischief all the time.
Once American and British tv found its way to us all sorts of things caught my attention. Those that stand out (in no particular order) are, Transformers; Robotech; He-Man and the A-Team. I may be a girl but it seems the boyish shows appealed the most.
As a young teenager I watched Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place and pretty much any other trashy angsty teenage drama and to be honest, they'd still be my guilty pleasure :-)
