Sci-Fi / Genre Shows from the '80s
The '80s were bonkers. I'm going to list some of the shows with the craziest premises.
1. The Wizard
A toy inventor (who happens to be a Little Person) uses his genius to fight crime and go on adventures.
A wealthy man can transform into animals. He fights crime.
A computer nerd makes an AI that can summon a car or any vehicle (along with myriad other abilities) to fight crime
Time travelers continually have to correct mistakes in history. One of them loses his manual and takes on a teenage sidekick (with extensive knowledge of history) instead.
5. Whiz Kids
Young computer nerds fight crime
6. Misfits of Science
Basically a super-hero show, without tights. Courtney Cox was a telekinetic teen.
7. The Master
Lee Van Cleef is a Master Ninja. Wanders the earth with a sidekick, fights crime.
8. My Secret Identity
A teenager gets superpowers and helps people while keeping them secret (no tights/mask).
