3. Central Brigade
Issued from 89 to 91. An elite group of the National Police that was specialized in complicated cases. The classic police series, very well done and with a cast of great actors . Among them Imanol Arias, who provided the differentiating element by being a gypsy policeman at a time when that was a very risky move.

4. Fortunata and Jacinta
The recreation of one of the masterpieces of Benito Perez Galdos had its niche on the Spanish television grid in the early 1980s. The story of Fortunata and Jacinto (for those who have not read the novel) is that of a choral representation of the Spanish society at the end of the 19th century with the “excuse” of telling the story of the two women who give the plot its name. A wonder of Galdos very well adapted to the small screen.

Another adaptation of a key work of our literature. In the Galicia of the last years of the Spanish Republic, the ups and downs and changes in society during a convulsive and fundamental time are dealt with in order to understand the Spanish history of the 20th century.In thirteen chapters a marvelous literary trilogy is condensed ; If you don’t have time to read it, don’t hesitate to watch it.

American 80’s series
While the Spanish series of the 1980s dealt with themes of customs or the new society that grew after the dictatorship, soap operas and police series triumphed in the United States .

1. Cheers
The mother of all sitcoms was one of the best American eighties series. With characters who met every day at the ‘Cheers’ bar to drown their sorrows and talk about their lives, Cheers took 28 Emmys out of 117 nominations over 11 seasons and was able to reflect an entire decade with humor and style. From Cheers came what would be one of the great series of the 90s: Frasier.

2.Miami Vice
Miami Vice was a pioneering series on American television in many ways. Despite having the typical police plot, it was not set in a city like New York, Chicago or Los Angeles, but rather in Miami, with all the typical atmosphere of the sunny city that Hawaii 5.0 and others later copied.In addition , the combination of a Caucasian police officer with an African-American one caused a furor and would be repeated in films such as Seven or Lethal Weapon.

A young Bruce Willis worked at the agency, in the role that catapulted him to fame. A series that marked an era both in the United States and in Spain .

Dinastia told the story of a family of oil tycoons and the vicissitudes they faced at a business and family level.. For 9 seasons, the characters that had some important role are counted by dozens, which gave rise to a very interesting plot of family generations.

6. Hill Street Sad Song
Another cop series that ranked among the best American 80s series. Contrary to some of the series that we mention in this post, Hill Street’s Sad Song became the quality reference series on the North American television scene .
