I would put it as a draw with lethal weapon/die hard, but then lethal weapon just seemed to have a bit more madness in it. Liked them all though.

the catchphrase has to be 'yippie kay yay mother f*****'

I had to put in dirty harry because its proper action, and the famous line:
'Do you feel lucky, well do ya PUNK'
Ill have to do another poll about 80s Action TV serieses. Before the TV was plagued with stuff you had to watch all the time and remember every single detail we had the A team, you didnt need to watch every episode to understand what was going on, you could just pick a random episode and be guaranteed of a good show.

For the telly front, it wasn't just the A-Team - I loved Airwolf, and Knight Rider, and MacGuyver... great stuff :cheesy:

Airwolf is still my favourite TV show from the 80s.
